DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Using a blender, combine the milk, 1/3 cup sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and flour, and blend.
  • Lightly butter an 8-cup baking dish, and pour a 1/4-inch layer of the blended mixture over the bottom. Set remaining batter aside.
  • Place dish into the oven for about 7-10 minutes, until a film of batter sets in the pan but the mixture is not baked through. Remove from oven (but don’t turn the oven off, yet).
  • 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.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 60 minutes, until the clafouti is puffed and brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm.
  • Servings: 6-8 for dessert, 4 for breakfast.
