Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Butter a round baking dish , about 8 inches in diameter, and scatter the cherries in the bottom.
  2. Combine the flour and sugar in a bowl, then gradually beat in the eggs until smooth. Whisk in the milk and cream, then stir in the kirsch. Pour this batter over the cherries and bake in the oven for about 50 minutes, until golden and puffed up. It should still have a wobble, but a knife inserted in the center should come out clean. Serve hot or warm, dusted with confectioners sugar.
