When your friends ask you what this is, you can tell them its just a little French dessert you threw together.
Cherry Clafoutis (KLA-FOO-TEE) is a surprisingly easy to make and tasty combination of almond custard studded with a handful of dark sweet Bing cherries.
The best part is that there is no crust, just a handful of ingredients you do just throw together on a summer evening. Eat this one on the porch. Yum.
