Cherries are In Season! What to Make? Cherry Clafouti

While it calls for almond extract, feel free to add amaretto or what I like to use - almond coffee syrup flavoring. You'll have to use a little bit more (about 2 teaspoons for the 3/4 t it calls for of extract) but the flavor is delicious.

Cherry Clafouti

2 cups of fresh sweet cherries, pitted
2 T of sliced or slivered almonds - toasted
3 eggs
1 c of sugar
1 T of brown sugar
1/2 c flour
1/8 t salt
1 c milk
3/4 t almond extract
1 1/2 t of vanilla
Powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter and lightly flour a 9X9 or 10X7 baking dish. Toss in the cherries and slivered almonds. Whisk the eggs, white sugar, brown sugar, salt, and flour together. Add the milk, almond extract, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Pour into the baking dish.

Bake for 40-50 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Place on a wire rack to cool. It will be puffy out of the oven but fall while cooling. When cool, dust with powdered sugar and serve.
