Mini Cherry Clafoutis


Clafouti, a rustic French dessert, gets a chic twist with these individual

versions made in muffin tins. This is also a great all-purpose recipe for other fresh fruit such as apricots, apples, peaches, pears or berries.

  • SERVINGServings


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup ground almonds or almond flour
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 cups pitted fresh or frozen cherries, thawed and drained
  • confectionersÂ’ sugar, for garnish


1. Preheat oven to 400F. Coat 12 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Whisk together eggs and sugar in bowl. Add ground almonds and flour, and whisk until smooth. Gradually add milk, whisking constantly, until smooth batter forms. Stir in vanilla and almond extracts. Transfer batter to 4-cup measuring cup or pitcher.

3. Divide cherries among prepared muffin cups (about 5 cherries per cup). Pour batter into each cup. Bake 20 minutes, or until clafoutis puff up and brown around sides. Cool completely.

4. Unmold clafoutis with thin spatula or two soup spoons. To warm before serving: Preheat oven to 250F. Place clafoutis on baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Cover with second sheet of foil, and warm 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to serving plates and sprinkle with confectionersÂ’ sugar.
