Cherry clafoutis with vanilla whipped cream

A wonderfully easy and comforting pudding. You could substitute the cherries for other soft fruit.

Ingredients

For the clafoutis
For the cream

Preparation method

  1. For the clafoutis, preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Place the eggs and sugar in a large bowl and whisk together. Sift over the flour and whisk well then stir in cream or crème fraîche and milk. Leave to rest for 10 minutes.

  2. Lightly butter a large baking dish and sprinkle with sugar to coat. Scatter the cherries in the dish and gently pour over the clafoutis batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the batter is just firm to the touch. If it is too soft in the centre, bake for a further five minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool a little before serving.

  3. Whip together the cream, sugar and vanilla seeds to soft peaks and spoon over the clafoutis.
