Step 3: In a blender , add the room temperature eggs, milk, honey and almond extract and blend just until mixed. Add the pastry flour and salt and pulse until blended.
Step 4: Pour batter evenly over cherries
and top with sliced almonds.
Step 5: Bake in preheated oven about 45 – 50 minutes, until golden and puffy.

Cherry Clafoutis Recipe Notes
As Camilla notes in the original recipe, “Clafouti is a traditional French country dessert that tastes like a cross between a custard or flan and a fruit-filled pancake. Traditional versions use cherries, but any fruit can be used, including apples, berries, sliced pears, peaches, plums or apricots. It will puff up dramatically during baking, then collapse. Let it cool slightly before serving, then chill the leftovers for a delicious breakfast treat the next morning.”
Feel free to use any type of milk to make this clafoutis and to keep it low fat, be sure to choose low-fat, skim or your favorite unsweetened non-dairy milk beverage.
Cherry Clafoutis Serving Suggestions
A slice of clafoutis pairs well with a small bowl of yogurt and fresh fruit.
Individually wrap your clafoutis slices for a quick grab-n-go breakfast, or snack, which works well when you’re short on time in the morning.
Ways to Use Leftover Clafouti
This Cherry Clafouti makes a nice leftover breakfast, served warm from the oven, toaster oven or microwave, or at room temperature, or chilled right out of the refrigerator on a warm day.
It can also be enjoyed as a simple dessert all by itself, with a dusting of powdered sugar, or a dollop of whipped topping.
