Clafoutis aux Cerises

 One of my favourite French desserts is a Clafoutis. It's usually made with cherries, and the question is whether to leave the stones in or take them out! I've read that leaving them in adds flavour, but I don't like finding stones in my dessert so I always take them out. I like to add some vanilla extract too. So for the Clafoutis you need: 500g cherries [stoned] 300ml milk 125g flour 100g caster sugar 3 eggs 20g butter [to butter dish] pinch salt icing sugar to dust Preheat oven 180C/gas5                         Grease a 23cm flan dish In a bowl sprinkle 50g of the sugar over the cherries and leave aside. Break the eggs and beat them together. Add the flour, rest of the sugar, a tspn of vanilla extract and the milk. Beat well to make a batter. Add a pinch of salt. Put the cherries in a layer in the base of the dish and pour over the batter. Bake for 35-40 mins till set. When cool, sift some icing sugar over the top. My daughter in law helped me.
