"That's not a slice of pepperoni pizza" , I had to say that more than once in potluck at my friends yesterday.
I found this french dessert recipe of Cherry clafoutis from Kevin's Closet Cooking. It was tempting and simple to try. I used home grown plums, which are half the size of normal plums and little bigger than cherries. And kept the recipe same as Kevin's just replaced the fruit. The result was very satisfactory and taste was fruity more like a pudding with fruits.
Ingredients needed are
1 pound small Plums or cherries (pitted)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar or 2 tablespoon Pure honey or for a sugar free alternative use 1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
To make the Clafoutis
Preheat Oven to 375F.
Wash and dry your fruits .Halve the Cherry or Plum and remove the seed. For the plums cut in smaller slices.
Mix the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Whisk the eggs in another bowl and add to the flour mixture and stir in the milk and vanilla extract.
Place the fruit (cherry halves or plum slices) on the bottom of a greased 9 inch pie plate or baking dish.Pour the batter over the fruit.
Bake until the clafoutis is puffed and golden brown, about 40-45 minutes. Slice and Serve when cooled.
