Cherry Clafoutis

FullSizeRender-34

Hi everyone! Today I will share with you my last “experiment” as I call it. I have observed that many of you love sweet recipes so here I come with the new one.

This cherry clafoutis is type of French dessert but it is not a typical fluffy cake as many of you can expect .The main reason why this “cake” is different is because of its dough. If i could compare it to something I would say it is like flan-like dessert because of its pretty dense and thick batter. It is made of milk, eggs, cream, sugar and not that much of flour. The typical one is with cherries but you can also find different versions. It is very rich mainly if you combine milk and whipping cream together as I did. For my version of Clafoutis I used also vanilla bean for better taste and smell then few spoons of coconut oil, lemon peel, and brown sugar which is not in original version but as I always say: “Be creative” 🙂 So I hope you will like it.
