  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1⁄8 tsp salt
  • 1⁄2 cup flour
  • 3 cups cherries, pitted

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C Fan.

  2. By using a mixer combine the milk, 1/3 cup sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and flour, and mix.

  3. Meanwhile, butter an 8-cup baking dish, and pour a 1/4-inch layer of the blended mixture over the bottom. Set remaining batter aside.

  4. Place dish into the oven for about 10 minutes, until a film of batter sets in the pan but the mixture is not baked through. Remove from oven. 

  5. Distribute the pitted cherries over the set batter in the pan, then sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Pour the remaining batter over the cherries and sugar.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until the clafouti is puffed and brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. The time of baking may differ due to the oven, so remember to check the clafoutis.
