JULIA CHILD’S CHERRY CLAFOUTI


JULIA CHILD’S CHERRY CLAFOUTI
Serves 6 – 8
1-1/4 cups whole milk
2/3 cup sugar, divided
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups cherries, pitted
Powdered sugar, for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Using a blender, combine the milk, 1/3 cup sugar, eggs, vanilla, almond extract, 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.
