Recipe: Cherry Clafouti

Calfouti can be made with any fruit I think but it’s traditionally made with cherries. The cake comes out somewhere between angel food cake and custard with a mild sweetness to counter the slight acid and sour taste of the cherries. Cherries are a big thing in the Pacific Northwest so this is a great dish for using them up. I pitted them by hand by cutting the cherries in half and pulling out the pits which didn’t take very long actually so no need to buy a cherry pitter if you don’t own one.
