National Cherry Dessert Day

Cherry Clafoutis at the Old Parkdale Inn – National Cherry Dessert Day, May 26

Clafoutis: Maybe it was the name, sounded very complex and intricate, but I put off attempting this dish. Now that I’ve tried it and realized how simple it is, I bake at least 3 or 4 a week for guests at the Old Parkdale Inn, especially during the Hood River Valley Cherry Harvest season, end of June into July.

ClafoutisClafoutis is a baked French dessert of fruit, traditionally black cherries, arranged in a buttered dish and covered with a thick flan-like batter. Very simple but oh so sweet and delicate!

Start by pitting enough Dark Cherries to fill the bottom of a buttered 9 or 10 inch glass pie plate. Preheat oven to 350°.

Ingredients: 4 eggs, ½ cup sugar, ¼ tsp salt, ¾ cup flour, ½ tsp vanilla, ½ tsp almond extract, 1 cup milk, 2 Tbs butter

Whisk together all the ingredients and pour over the cherries. Bake 40-45 minutes. Let it cool and firm up a bit before slicing into wedges, dust with Powdered sugar and serve.
