Cherry clafoutis might sound fancy, but don’t be fooled – this French dessert is surprisingly easy to make. And even more importantly, it’s delicious!
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup whole milk
- ½ cup whole milk Greek yogurt
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- Zest of ½ lemon
- 1 cup pitted sweet cherries or tart cherries
- powdered sugar, for dusting
- Toasted sliced raw almonds, for serving
In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, milk, yogurt, granulated sugar, flour, salt, vanilla, and almond extract. Whisk until just mixed. Add the melted butter and lemon zest and stir until thoroughly combined. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease eight 6-ounce ramekins.
Divide the batter among the ramekins. Spread a layer of cherries on top of the batter.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until lightly golden brown and barely set in the middle. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
To serve, dust with powdered sugar and sprinkle with almonds.
