This simple and delicious baked cherry custard is inspired by the famous French dessert clafouti. The dark, sweet cherries baked simply in a creamy, eggy batter produces a comforting dessert everyone will love. Serve this baked cherry custard as is, or with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

What You'll Need

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 12 oz pitted fresh cherries, about a pint
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

How to Make It

Pour the cherries into a buttered 2-quart baking dish. Whisk the remaining ingredients in a bowl to form a light, thin batter. Pour over the cherries and place in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 45 minutes, or until cherry custard is browned and puffed around the edges, and the center is set. Allow cooling to warm or room temperature before serving.

Serve plain or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
