this is the cake that we have been serving our audiences at our church's annual Song of Christmas performances for several years now. Topped with a dollop of whipped cream, it is sweet, moist, and delicious.
My cousin, who is a children's book illustrator, learned to make clafoutis (klaw-foo-TEE) while she was living with a French family for a summer. You can get the whole story at http://www.monicabooks.blog-city.com/cherry_clafoutis_summer.htm
Although I had always served a potato casserole with our Easter ham, my daughter-in-law brought her "family recipe" this year and everyone agreed that this was so good that it should become the permanent replacement for my other casserole.
My son picked this one up from a family cookbook in Arkansas; it has that perfect "southern" home-cooked flavor to it. In many ways, it actually resembles the good ol' "cornmeal cush" that the Confederates were able to make with their rations while campaigning.
When I was a kid in Ohio, my mother kept mint growing under a dripping hose bib. On those icky, sticky, hot and humid summer days, I fondly remember cold glasses of this refreshing iced tea with its hint of mint, orange and lemon juices.
