Provençal Cherry Clafoutis

It’s in Saint-Saturnin-Les-Apt, a small village located an hour from Aix-en-Provence, that the culture of “red diamonds” takes root. Crunchy and delicious, cherries arrive on our tables today in the form of a clafoutis. This typically Provençal dessert is simple, authentic and delicious!

Serves 4

  • Time required: 50 min
  • Preparation time: 20 min
  • Cooking time: 30 min

Ingredients

  • 500g cherries
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g flour
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 300ml milk
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 30g butter
  • 1 pinch of salt

Method

Wash, wipe, de-stalk and stone the cherries. Butter a springform pan then pour in the prepared cherries. In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, then little by little the flour and the sugar. Mix everything together then add the milk and the vanilla bean, as well as a pinch of salt to bring out the flavors.

Pour the mixture over the cherries then preheat the oven to 180°C. When hot, place the clafoutis in the oven and leave to cook for 30 minutes.

Note: A cherry clafoutis is even tastier if it’s served after being left to cool slightly. And for the gourmets among you, it will only be more delicious served with a scoop of pistachio ice cream!
