The classic way to make this dessert is with unstoned cherries, though stoned cherries make it easier to eat!
For 8 to 10 people:
175g white pastry flour
175g icing sugar
325 ml double cream
325 ml milk
1 drop of vanilla extract
Sieve the flour and icing sugar together. Bring the double cream, milk and vanilla extract to the boil. Add to flour & icing sugar and hand whisk until smooth. Add eggs, and mix until smooth.
Put the cherries into a large flat-bottomed buttered dish. Then pour the mixture on top.
Bake at 175°C until the clafoutis is browned: it will take 20–25 minutes.
When cool, dust with icing sugar.
