Cherries are finally in season and easily obtainable here in the Deep South. Just in time to make this weeks French Fridays with Dorie selection.


    whole-cherry clafoutis

I had never made a clafootis before so this was a new adventure for me.

Dorie’s is made without a crust and with whole cherries. Be careful. So easy! The semi-tartness of the cherries are rounded out by the slightly sweet pudding like ‘cake’.

I made 1/3 of the total recipe resulting in a small 7″ square. And it probably would have been better, and thicker, in a smaller dish.

The recipe is on page 452 of Dorie’s around my French table.

Check out more clafoutis on the FFWD website.
