Fresh Cherry Clafouti/#Dairy Month

 If you have not had the pleasure of enjoying fresh cherries on a summer day, you must try this dessert! If you have had the pleasure, you know how amazing fresh cherries are! Cherries are a "good for you" summer treat and during the peak season, I love to cook and bake with them as often as I can. They are also incredible tasting right from the bag, but don't forget to remove the pit!


What is needed for Fresh Cherry Clafouti?

You are going to need a cherry pitter. This is what they look like. Picture is below this paragraph. I bought this one about 2 years ago, and I use it quite often. To use it, simply wash the cherries with clear water and pat dry. Pull the stem off of each one. Place the cherry directly on the round silver base directly below the long silver stem looking piece.  Place the cherry so that the stem piece will drive directly into the top of the cherry, when you push the handle down. When that happens, the pit will be pushed out of the bottom of the cherry. Throw the pits away and keep the cherries together in a container and refrigerate them once the pits have been removed.

There are other ways to remove pits, but most of them are messy, and I have seen a couple that look dangerous!

Once the cherries are pitted, refrigerate them to keep them cold, especially if you are in a hot climate.


Fresh Cherry Clafouti Ingredients

(Makes 4, 8-ounce cups) 

1 1/2 cups fresh Cherries, pitted, then sliced

2 large Eggs

1/2 cup +1/8 cup Milk

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Sugar

1/4 cup All Purpose Flour

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1/4 teaspoon Almond Extract



Today I made a Fresh Cherry Clafouti in individual servings. They are easy to serve, and it helps determine if you have made enough! Everyone gets one dish!

You are going to love the fresh flavors from the cherries mixed with the pudding like flavor. Comfort food!

Pit each cherry that you will be using. You do not want to miss any pits when making this dessert! Make sure to grease the sides and bottom of the bowls with butter.


Cut the cherries in half. Distribute the cherries evenly between the bowls or ramekins. If you are making this in one large dish, no distribution is needed. Just pour the cherries in the pan!

Using a medium bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, sugar, flour, vanilla extract and almond extract. 

Pour the mix into each bowl, distributing it equally. Place in 350-degree oven for 20-25 minutes. When checking for the degree of doneness, stick a toothpick in the cups to double check. If more time is needed for cooking, check in small intervals until done. 

Drop a dollop of whipped cream on the top of the Cherry Clafouti. Top the whipped cream with a cherry! A Fresh Cherry Clafouti is a treat! Enjoy! Find a printable recipe a little further down the page.
