Recipe by LAURIEZ
"An original French dessert recipe of my grandmother's, tweaked a bit to be lower in fat! It's best made with fresh fruit and is delicious with a dollop of lite whipped topping. If you want to make it the original way, not low-fat, just use regular milk and butter and 4 large eggs. Also, to substitute for kirsch, you may use the juice from five squashed cherries or use 1 tablespoon of cherry syrup."

1 1/2 pounds
pitted fresh sweet cherries
1 (7 inch)
vanilla bean, split lengthwise and crushed
kirsch (cherry brandy)
confectioners' sugar for dusting
This recipe is delicious! The crust is light and airy and the cherries are wonderfully juicy. Also try plums. Anyone fan of sweets will love this recipe! It's not at all tart and not too rich. Perfect!
This was really easy to make, but I wasn't totally crazy about it -- not as flavorful as I'd hoped it would be.
Excellent recipe. A few quick words: I used 1 cup egg substitute, a LITTLE less than 1 cup but more than 3/4 cup of soymilk. I've never used kirsch in my clafouti, so I just left it out. The dessert was still delicious and sweet and tastes just like a clafouti should. Also, I baked for only 35 minutes - it starts to brown quickly. Great overall! Delicious taste.
I can't believe I ate the whole Thing.
Used Cherries from a Jar...
I loved this recipe. Used fresh figs, They were a wonderful compliment.And I even got many myself!!!!
I took the other reviewers recommadations to heart as I made this dish for a work party my parents are having tonight, even though I will not be able to sample this due to my allergies it smells just delightful! I only used 1 pound of cherries(and the trick to pitting them is stem them then take a bobby pin in the stem whole and then pop that cherry), I also only used 4 tablespoons of heavy cream and it took exatly 45 minutes, to the dot in the oven. A real looker.
This recipe was just okay for me. There is a lot of prep time if you need to pit the cherries yourself. I found that I had to cook it almost 20 minutes longer than the recommended time. Overall I didn't feel there was the flavour return for the amount of time that was put into making it and waiting for it to bake.
This recipe was great but I used Aunt Jemimah pancake mix and fresh sweet cherries which made it more flavorful.
