Somewhere between bread pudding and flan lies the taste and texture of clafouti. This dessert has been very popular in homes across France for ages. Make it with any type of fruit.

Cherry Clafouti
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
Yield :
8-10 servings


*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Smear a little extra butter in a deep 9-inch pie tin or a 9x 9 inch square pan or a bake-proof vessel with similar dimensions. Set aside.
  3. If using fresh cherries, remove stems and pits and scatter on bottom of selected pan. Frozen cherries do not need to be thawed. Set aside.
  4. In a bowl large enough to hold all ingredients whisk together eggs and milk until well combined.
  5. Sift and add flour, sugar and salt and whisk until no lumps remain. Add vanilla and melted butter and whisk smooth.
  6. Pour onto cherries and place in oven.
  7. After 15 minutes, reduce heat to 325°F and bake until center is set and no longer trembles, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Based on your type of vessel and how it conducts heat, your required time may be more or less.
  8. Remove from oven.
  9. If desired serve warm with Crème Chantilly or vanilla ice cream. 


Clafouti is most delicious when served warm or at room temperature.
