Cherry Clafoutis is a surprisingly easy yet elegant french dessert that everyone is going to love! This custard-like base is studded with sweet pitted cherries and flavored with vanilla and almond, so scrumptious!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a blender, combine eggs, sugar, salt, milk, and both extracts. Blend until combined. Add in the flour and blend again for about 30 seconds until combined. Add in the melted butter and pulse the blender a couple times to mix it in.
Pour the batter into the prepared 10x6 oval dish, but it can also be done in a 9 inch round dish. Place the cherries on top of the batter. You can arrange them however you prefer.
Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until fully set and a knife comes out mostly clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool at least 15 minutes.
You may serve this warm or cold. Dust with powdered sugar and, if desired, serve with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
If you don't have a cherry pitter, using a metal straw works great! Poke the bottom of the cherry with the straw and the pit will pop out the top. I used a 10x6 oval dish, but it can also be done in a 9inch round dish
