Cherry Clafoutis is fantastic. This was my first time making a Clafoutis and it won’t be the last. It’s Delicious! Cherry Clafoutis is made in a cast-iron skillet and makes a perfect fast and easy dessert. Most often made with cherries but can be made with any “stone” fruit.
Clafoutis; clafouti [kla-foo-TEE] Priginally from the Limousin region, this country-French dessert is made by topping a layer of fresh fruit with batter. After baking it’s served hot, sometimes with cream, Some styles have a cakelike topping while others are more like a pudding. Though cherries are traditional, any fruit such as plums, peaches or pears can be used.

Sour cherries are smaller, softer and more globular than the sweet varieties. Most are too tart to eat raw, but make excellent pies, preserves and the like. The bestselling sour cherry varieties are the bright red Early Richmond, the first cherry available in the late spring, Montmorency and the dark mahogany Red Morello.
