Clafouti aux Cerises (Cherry French Flan) Recipe

I think clafouti is one of the most commonly found desserts in France after crème brulée.

Clafouti is traditionally made with cherries; the fruit is baked in a custard, flan-like batter. Contrary to crème caramel (which is somewhat like a flan), clafouti is made with flour. Just sprinkle on little powdered sugar before serving and you'll get oohs and ahhs from your guests.

This dessert is my finishing touch to my 4-course "French meal" in honor of the opening of the movie called "Julie and Julia".
