Recipe

Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 9 tablespoons (1 stick plus 1 tablespoon) unsalted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour, sifted
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound Bing or Queen Anne cherries, stemmed and pitted
  • 2 cups heavy cream, lightly whipped

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 10-inch round glass or porcelain pie pan evenly with 1 tablespoon of the butter. Melt the remaining 8 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over low heat and reserve.

Using an electric mixer set at high speed, beat the eggs with the sugar and reserved melted butter until the mixture is thickened and a light lemon color, about 3 minutes. Add the flour and vanilla and mix until thoroughly blended. Set aside for 15 minutes.

Arrange the cherries over the bottom of the buttered pie pan. Pour the batter evenly over the cherries. Bake for 45 minutes until golden and puffy. Serve at room temperature with the whipped cream.

Notes

You can substitute sliced green gage or red plums for the cherries.
