Cherry Clafouti


  • 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen dark sweet cherries, thawed and drained
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon orange liqueur
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup granulated 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.
