The combination of cherries and pistachios with a hint of vanilla is a perfect match. This clafoutis is so delicious, you'll want to eat the entire thing in one seating!
You will need:
200 grams cherries
100 grams (½ cup) sugar
30 grams (1/3 cup) pistachios
30 grams (1/3 cup) flour
100 grams (1/3 cup) milk
200 grams (3/4 cup) heavy cream
4 grams (1 tsp) vanilla paste (see vanilla bean paste post)
pinch of salt
Makes enough for a 10 inch round dish.
Set oven at 325 F.
Wash and de-stem cherries (we left the pits in but take them out if you want).
Grind pistachios until they are the consistency of flour.
Beat the eggs and sugar with a whisk until light.
Add ground pistachios, flour, and salt and mix until combined.
Add milk, then heavy cream and vanilla, beating continuously to avoid lumps.
Put cherries in a baking dish and pour mixture on top.
Bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Serve at room temperature.
