    French Tart's Note:

    A delicious and easy traditional French pudding; Clafoutis or Clafouti is basically a custard/pancake batter type pudding which is usually baked with fruit. Most seasonal fruits other than cherries work well - such as apricots, raspberries, blackberries etc. I make it with either fresh cherries or with bottled/tinned cherries. I try to bottle some every year, picked from the cherry trees in the garden and put them in Kirsch or Cognac! Serve with creme fraiche or cream & garnish with a cherry on top with some of the reserved liqueur.

      The 1st two "birthday cakes" that I remember (& they were made ages ago!) were actually fresh cherry pies, & since then I've had a soft spot for anything with cherries in it, & that's why I was drawn to making this recipe! This outstanding dessert is so easy to make & is definitely something I want to make again when I have company for dinner! As it was, the 2 of us managed somehow to stuff ourselves with this very tasty treat! I even went the whole route & served it with creme fraiche! What a wonderful recipe to make again! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for my chosen partner in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 24]

      Wow FT! This is simple to make and really delicious. I used fresh cherries and loved the slightly sweet, slightly tart flavour. I did not dust extra sugar on and served it with home-made vanilla icecream. The pancake-custard part had a delicate crispy crust with a soft inside that I found very satisfying. I am going to try this using peaches next. Thanks for a wonderful dessert!
