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!

Ingredients

½ cup flour, all-purpose

*
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon almond extract

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Whisk the flour, salt, eggs and sugar until smooth.

Add the milk, almond and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth.

Butter a 9 by 9-inch or 10 by 7-inch baking dish, or a pie plate.

Add the cherries, almonds if using and sugar into a bowl, toss until well mixed.

Spread the cherries and almonds if using evenly into the baking dish.

Pour the batter into the baking dish.

Bake for about 45 minutes or until lightly browned and puffed, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack.

The clafoutis puffs in the oven as it bakes, but it collapses once it's out of the oven.

Dust the powdered sugar on top.

Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.

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!
