Cherry Clafouti (Julia Child's recipe)


Have you watched 'Julie and Julia' ?? I feel that it is a movie that every food blogger could relate with! This recipe for this Cherry Clafouti is adapted from Julia Child! One fruit that I have tried only after coming to the US is cherry. I totally love to have cherries all by itself. I somehow reserved some cherries to make this lovely dessert for my hubby's birthday dinner. It turned out really good and we had it along with some french vanilla icecream! Divine!!

Onto the recipe..

Ingredients (Source: Julia Child)

Milk - 1 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1/3 cup
Eggs - 3
Vanilla extract - 1 teaspoon
Salt - 1/8 teaspoon
Flour - 1/2 cup
Cherries, pitted - 3 cups
Sugar - 1/3 cup
Powdered sugar for dusting


Directions
Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a blender blend together the milk, 1/3 cup of sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and flour.

Pour a 1/4 inch layer of the batter in a buttered 7 or 8 cup lightly buttered fireproof baking dish. Place in the oven until a film of batter sets in the pan.

Remove from the heat and spread the pitted cherries over the batter. Sprinkle on the 1/3 cup of sugar. Pour on the rest of the batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for about for about 45 minutes to an hour.

The clafouti is done when puffed and brown and and a knife plunged in the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm!
