Pipe Dream #190: To Find That One Gem – Cherry Breakfast Clafoutis

claf 1

I have recently been loving checking out HuffPost Taste. All the pictures are beautiful, and it points me to other blogs for inspiration. Scrolling through recipe indices is so fun for me. It’s like digging through the entire rack at the thrift store and finding that one gem.

I tried a cherry clafoutis once before, but that was with cherry pie filling, and the effect is not quite the same. Clafoutis in their true form are easy art; the fruit displays beautifully like in a tart, but you don’t have to go through all the work of making a tart shell. Pancake tart art for Saturday b-fast? Yes please.

The original recipe has a crumble topping which looked so amazing. Please try it like that. And bonus, clafoutis work well as dessert also, served warm or at room temperature.

Happy breakfast-ing,


Cherry Breakfast Clafoutis

Adapted heavily from HuffPost Taste

2/3 cup white whole wheat flour (or all-purpose)
heaping 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3 large eggs
3/4 cup lowfat milk
1/4 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 pound (12 ounces) frozen, pitted cherries

For garnish: powdered sugar, heavy whipping cream

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt. Whisk in the melted butter, eggs, milk, yogurt and vanilla. Let the batter rest for 30 minutes.

Butter 8 small ramekins or a 6-cup baking dish. Arrange the cherries in the bottom of the dish(es). Pour the batter over the cherries and bake for 30-40 minutes until puffed and golden.

Whip the heavy whipping cream, adding sugar for sweetness. Dust clafoutis with powdered sugar just before serving and top with lightly whipped cream. Serve warm or at room temperature.
