  • Serves: 2-3 servings
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 45 minutes


  • 2 c. Fresh Cherries, pitted & halved
  • 2 tbsp. Slivered Almonds
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3/4 c. Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1/8 tsp. Salt
  • 1 c. Milk
  • 3/4 tsp. Almond Extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Powdered Sugar, for dusting


  1. Thoroughly grease and flour a 9x9 baking dish, and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place slivered almonds and cherries in bottom of dish and set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl whisk together all ingredients until smooth and airy. Pour batter over almonds and cherries, then bake for 35-45 minutes; if the clafoutis browns too quickly, cover it with a loose tent of aluminum foil and continue baking.

  3. Remove from oven when a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean. The clafoutis may not be set entirely and will have expanded - it will settle as it cools. Cool on a wire rack, then dust with powdered sugar to finish.
