French Cherry Clafoutis with chocolate chips, my take on the classic summer dessert. Superbly scrumptious and light, with an almond custard-like taste and texture, this is one of those quick and easy desserts that never fail to impress. This easy summer dessert is ready pretty quickly too. The cherries can be replaced with sour cherries, blueberries, plums, cranberries and so on. A great French dessert for a sweet summer.

  • 50 g plain flour
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp melted butter + 1 tsp to brush
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp ground almonds
  • 150 ml milk
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 cup pitted cherries (or enough to cover the bottom of the pan)
  • one handful of milk chocolate chips
  • powder sugar to sprinkle
  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius (375 degrees Fahrenheit).

  2. Brush the bottom of a skillet (mine is a smaller 6 1/2 ") with butter, then sprinkle a tablespoon of granulated sugar over.

  3. In a jug whisk together the milk and egg, salt and one tablespoon of melted butter, then add the almond and vanilla extract.

  4. In a large bowl, sift in the flour, add the sugar and ground almonds and mix well to combine.

  5. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and gradually whisk in the liquid until you get a lump-free batter.

  6. Arrange the cherries on the bottom of the skillet and sprinkle the chocolate chips over. Pour over the batter and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until set and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  7. Serve either warm or cold from the fridge with some powder sugar sprinkled over.
