Cherrie Clafouti


This recipe is the perfect dish to make during the Cherrie season. We use it for dessert, for afternoon tea or for brunch it is always delicious.



125 g Flour (if gluten free use the flour for bread)

200 g Sugar

4 Eggs

2 dl milk

750 g Cherries

Butter for greasing the baking dish

Powdered sugar for decoration


Preheat the oven to 175C. Butter an ovenproof baking dish wide enough to hold the cherries in one layer.

Wash the cherries and remove the stones and stalks. Add the cherries to the baking dish.

Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add the sugar. Whisk in the eggs one at a time, followed by the milk until you have a smooth batter.

Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake for about half an hour, until just set. Sprinkle with the powdered sugar and serve warm.


Buon Appetito!
