  • Prep the cherries: Preheat the oven to 375F. Remove the stems, wash and dry, then pit all your cherries. I find it is much easier to use a cherry pitter versus doing this with knife.
  • Make the batter: Bring the half and half to a boil then remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla. Let the cream cool for about 5 minutes before proceeding. You can use either a blender or a hand mixer for this step. It's important for the batter to be smooth and well blended. Add the cream, eggs, sugar, vanilla, flour, and salt to your bowl or blender. Mix until there are no more lumps.
  • Assemble and bake the clafoutis: Butter the skillet and arrange the cherries. Pour the batter into the skillet over the cherries. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until fully cooked. Dust with powdered sugar and serve.


Store leftovers either in an airtight container or wrapped well with plastic in the fridge. It will last 3-4 days, and is best if reheated. Zap the clafoutis for 15 second intervals until it's warm. You can also cover it with foil and bake at 350F for 5-10 minutes, or until warm.
Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
