Cherry clafoutis is original from France, and it's usually made with unpitted cherries, which gives the clafoutis almond flavor during the baking. But nowadays we always pit the cherries in order to eat it easier later on, so you can add a little bit almond extract, which will definitely give your clafoutis almond taste without worrying about the pits from the cherries!

A very light and delicious dessert that fits summer perfectly! Bought some fresh, big and sweet bing cherries the other day, then decided to make this recipe that I had been hearing about for a long time. It came out very good, not too sweet, lots of juicy cherries with a custard-like base. Adding almond extract definitely brought the nice almond flavor, and the toasted sliced almonds gave extra crunch and another layer of almond flavor with the nuttiness. If you have some fresh cherries on hand now, try this recipe, and you won't be disappointed!
