The clafouti (a.k.a. clafoutis) is a French dessert, that essentially, is like a pancake with a little more emphasis on the ?cake? part of ?pancake.? Its simple, light, fluffy, and meant to be whipped up quickly and eaten up just as fast.

Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Cherry Clafouti

3 cups cherry, stems removed, pit
1 1/4 cups milk
2/3 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
3/8 cup flour
1/8 cup cocoa powder
3 oz chocolate chips, chunks

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Cherry Clafouti

  1. Even if you?re not going to pit the cherries, unfortunately you do still have to stem them. This is certainly a much cleaner affair though than having to pop each one in half. Or if you?re so inclined, pit them now.

  2. Add the milk, half of the sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt, flour, and cocoa powder in the blender/food processor and blend it for a minute or two.

  3. grease a cake pan and preheat your oven to 350F. Pour a very thin (like 1/4 inch tall) amount of the cake batter into the pan and set this over your stove top on medium heat for a minute or to. You should notice that this will cook and set that thin layer of batter, giving your clafouti an established bottom (preventing the cherries from just sinking right to the bottom of your cake pan later, for instance). Remove from heat.

  4. Now, add in the cherries, spreading them out evenly and topping off with the remaining 1/3 cup of sugar. If you?re using chocolate chips/chunks, throw them in now as well (I used a mix of white and dark chocolate, thinking it would look good, but in the end, you couldn?t visibly distinguish it, so don?t bother trying to be stylish here).

  5. Finally, pour in the batter.

  6. Now, simply transfer this to the oven and bake for about 1 hour. The clafouti should be puffed and browned when its done and you should be able to knife the center and have it come out clean.

  7. Remove from the oven and promptly dust with some confectioner?s sugar and dig in while its hot. Enjoy!
