Servings 6


  • 1 mixing bowl
  • 1 whisk or electric mixer
  • 1 baking dish


  • 3 cups cherries (or 1½ cups of frozen cherries or pitted cherries)
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • milk
  • blossom water or vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • optional: powdered sugar


  • Preheat the oven: preheat your oven to 410°F. Grease a baking dish with butter to prevent sticking.
  • Prepare the Cherries:
    Fresh cherries: wash and pit the fresh cherries.
    Frozen cherries: let them thaw and remove all the remaining water.
    Optional: cut them in half for a burst of flavor in every bite.
  • Create the Batter: in a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, milk, flour, blossom water (or vanilla extract), and a pinch of salt. Blend or whisk using a hand mixer until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  • Layer the Cherries: arrange the pitted cherries in a single layer at the bottom of the prepared baking dish. The cherries will create a beautiful pattern as they bake.
  • Pour in the Batter: pour the batter over the cherries, ensuring an even distribution. The batter will surround the cherries, creating a custard-like texture as it bakes.
  • Bake to Perfection: place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until the clafoutis is set and golden brown on top. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.
  • Cool and dust: allow the cherry clafoutis to cool slightly before dusting the top with powdered sugar. This adds a touch of sweetness and a hint of elegance.
  • Serve the clafoutis: slice the clafoutis into wedges and serve either warm or at room temperature. For an extra flourish, you can add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
