Cherry Clafouti…Gesundheit

Cherry Clafoutis

Cherry Clafoutis

Clafoutis definition:  Baked French dessert of fruit, traditionally black cherries, arranged in a buttered dish, and covered with a thick flan-like batter. The Clafoutis is dusted with powdered sugar, served warm and sometimes served with cream.

Gesundheit: used to wish good health, especially to one who has just sneezed.

I have made Clafoutis before, but with peaches or berries, which I guess isn’t really, technically, a clafoutis.  I also read somewhere that traditional Clafoutis are made with the pits still in the cherries.  When I discovered that we had no cherry pitter in the house and I couldn’t find one in a couple of stores I looked in, I felt like leaving the pits in.

Having dinner on the “terrace” sounds so classy and upscale.  It was actually in the backyard, but it seems like a terrace, to me.

***I originally wrote most of this post in Mid-March, but was unable to get Y!C!’s recipe and then I forgot about it until yesterday.  So, I am going to post it anyway.  Note that our activities occurred in early to Mid-March.***

We’ve been spending most of our spare time over at the Money Pit, trying to get it finished so that we can move in.  We are gradually taking our stuff over there so we can unpack while we are waiting for contractor mistakes to be fixed. Our patience is being challenged.  If you want to read about the details, you can go here: Keeping It Midcentury

So Yes!Chef! has not had a lot of time to cook and be creative.
