I decided that if they had cherries at the farmer’s market on Saturday that I was going to make clafoutis. Clafoutis (kla-foo-tee) is a French county dessert that also works well for a special breakfast. They ended up having beautiful dark red cherries, and I started looking for a recipe. I planned on going to church with my mom, and thought I would ask J to put this in the oven while we were gone. Browsing recipes, I found the Emeril’s seemed to be one of the most simple and didn’t need to be baked immediately. I am not an Emeril fan or at least not a fan of his shows. In fact, I can’t stand him but this recipe is sooo good and sooo easy. I will definitely make this again (maybe with peaches and raspberries). We had it with a bit of softly whipped cream.
Click here for the recipe. I only added half a cup of sugar to the batter and didn’t sugar the cherries at all. I found it to be plenty sweet. I also left out the brandy from Emeril’s recipe.
