I love them so much that I couldn’t resist making a cake in their season. Their Highnesses in the main part – the Cherries! Clafoutis with cherries is a light and airy French dessert which would impress everybody with the way it looks.

The classic clafoutis is made with cherries or sour cherries. But if you want to escape the classic you may use other summer fruits like apricots, peaches, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. The batter for this dessert is similar to the pancakes’ batter and it has to be with the same consistency. Another thing you could experiment with is the shape. You may prepare it in a large baking tin and cut pieces like the ones in the photo or you may prepare it in small fireproof dishes.


  • 400 g cherries
  • 60g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 70 g all purpose flour
  • 120 g dairy milk
  • 50 g butter + some for the tin
  • Vanilla
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  • Smear the tin with butter
  • Spread the cherries at the bottom of the tin. You have to remove the pits before that. Use whatever you want. I use a metal straw. Try to keep their shape so that they look good on photos.
  • Beat the eggs and the sugar in a bowl until the sugar dissolves or until the batter becomes lighter in color.
  • Add the sifted flour, the milk, the melted butter and the vanilla.
  • Beat until smooth
  • Pour the mixture on the cherries
  • Bake in preheated oven with fan at 170° C for 30 min.
  • When the dessert is cool dust it with powdered sugar
