The styling for this dessert begins with choosing your ramekin. Here, I used mini oven-to-table dishes, which work great as this dish is best served warm. I also like the rustic look of the dishes (vs. a ramekin) because this is a rustic-style dessert with no precision needed. Simply throw your pitted cherries into the dish, and let them fall where they may. As the batter bakes, those cherries will peek through. Just be sure to let the dessert cool slightly before adding the confectioners’ sugar or the sugar will melt into the dessert and won’t be visible.

    Seasons of a Pastry Chef- Cherry Clafoutis

    Refreshing light dessert for the summer.

    This recipe for Cherry Clafoutis was easy to make and brought back family memories (my original recipe came from my aunt in France). I made the following adjustments: 1. Buttered the 4 small ramekins then sprinkle them with sugar. 2. Pitted the cherries then arrange them into the ramekins. 3. Measured sugar put it into the bowl with lemon zest (did not have orange); mixed it together 4. Measured & mixed all other dry ingredients. 5. In the measuring cup I mixed all wet ingredients and add it to the dry ingredients.

    Can I substitute another fruit for the cherries if cherries are not in season?

    For sure. Blueberries would be lovely.
