Cherry Calfouti

10 Jun

  • 1 pound fresh cherries, stemmed and pitted, or frozen pitted cherries, thawed, drained
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Powdered sugar
  • 10″ springform cake pan or eight 2/3- or 3/4-cup ramekins or custard cups
  • Preheat oven to 375°. Butter cake pan or ramekins. Arrange cherries in a single layer in pan.
  • Combine milk and cream in a small saucepan; bring just to a simmer over medium heat. Set aside. Combine eggs, flour, sugar, lemon zest, vanilla, and salt in a medium bowl; whisk to blend. Gradually whisk in hot milk mixture; whisk until custard is smooth. Pour custard evenly over cherries in pan. If necessary, gently shake pan to allow custard to settle.
  • Bake clafouti until custard is set and top is golden brown, about 30 minutes for ramekins and 45-55 minutes for cake pan. Let cool 3 minutes, then run a knife around pan sides to loosen clafouti (if using a cake pan). Dust top with powdered sugar; cut into wedges and serve.

*NOTE: I added chocolate chips to one of our ramekins after the cherries but before the custard = totally delicious!! Try it.
