Cherry Clafouti


  • 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen dark sweet cherries, thawed and drained
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon orange liquor
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup sugar, plus 6 teaspoons
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting


  1. Heat oven to 375 degree F. Butter six 6-ounce individual quiche dishes. Divide cherries equally over the bottom of each dish.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, orange liquor, vanilla, lemon zest, 1/3 cup sugar and salt. Slowly blend in milk.
  3. Add flour and whisk until slightly lumpy.
  4. Pour batter over cherries and place dishes in the oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the tarts are golden and puffy. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar over the top of each and bake 5 additional minutes.
  5. Cool dishes on wire rack for 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
