Love this! The flathead cherries in Montana will be ripe soon. This clafoutis will be on the menu!!

One of our all time favorite desserts. Love the rectangular dish. Makes it look so French, which of course it is.

This is probably my favorite dessert.

Just made a clafouti last month. Your recipe looks great. To answer your question about the motorcycle trip, the guys road their bikes to Alaska and home again. The gals flew to Anchorage, rode for 3 weeks and flew home from Oregan. It was fun.

K&S~hope you are enjoying your summer!

Susan~I wish we had those cherry trees here in Florida~

Sam~I could eat the entire dessert myself. Sort of just slides right down!

Simona said...

How pretty! And the dish too. No cherries yet here. I hope we don't end up cherry-less like last year. Hope you are having a nice summer so far.

Bonjour Jann,
did you know that French cooks use unpitted cherries because they swear it improves the taste of the clafoutis? I personally do not thinks so and also I value my teeth, but be careful if you get served a clafoutis aux cerises in France.
