Cherry Clafoutis

Cherry Clafoutis - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
A pack of seasonal fresh cherries was lying in my refrigerator for few days and I didn't want to make candied cherries... So while googling stumbled upon a simple and quick cherry clafoutis recipe. It's originally a French dessert and it uses lots of eggs. I felt it's definitely going to make this dessert taste eggy after its cooled off which I don't like so I used only half the number of eggs. Made some more changes so its not authentic french recipe but I was happy with the changes I made. It came out really tasty, quick dessert which will make it hard for you to stop at few bites. It tastes even better along with just plain vanilla icecream.
