Clafoutis is a traditional french dessert, originated from the former province of Limousin, central France. It was originally made from cherries (with pits) and a batter, but nowadays clafoutis can be sweet or salted and can be made of various fruits (pears, apricots, plums, etc.) and vegetables as well.
In fact this is a very quick to prepare and cook dessert. It's ready in some 30 minutes.
As the recipes vary a lot, here my suggestion for this dessert:
180 ml liquid cream
5-6 tablespoons of corn flour
100 gr sugar
20 ml coconut rum
400 gr fresh cherries
2-3 tablespoons of caster sugar to sprinkle.
What to do:
Preheat the oven on 180 degrees.
In a bowl mix well eggs and sugar. Gently add corn flour and liquid cream. At the end add vanilla and rum.
Butter a baking dish (30x30 cm) and place the whole cherries on the bottom. Cover with the batter and bake for some 20-25 minutes until golden. At the end sprinkle with caster sugar.
