Cherry Clafoutis with Lavender Blossoms

Cherry Clafoutis with Lavender Blossoms

Editor's Note: Cherry clafoutis is a delicious French dish that can be eaten as a sweet dessert or indulgent breakfast. The lavender adds a unique touch to this scrumptious dish.

The subtle aroma of lavender infuses this classic clafoutis, a rustic dessert from the Limousin region of France featuring cherries suspended in a thick pancake-like batter that puffs up.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons fresh or dried lavender blossoms, divided use
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen Bing cherries, pitted
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons almond meal
  • Fresh or dried lavender blossoms, for garnish
  • Whipped cream, for garnish if desired

Instructions

  1. If using fresh blossoms, strip them off the stems. Place 2½ tablespoons of the fresh or dried blossoms in a small sachet or tea infuser and place in the warm milk. Cover and infuse for 30 minutes. Discard sachet and set aside.

  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease an 8x8-inch baking dish or 4 individual dishes and dot the bottom(s) with the butter and cherries. 

  3. In a bowl, whisk the infused milk, sugar, eggs, almond extract, flour, almond meal, and remaining lavender blossoms. Pour the mixture over the cherries. 

  4. Set the baking dish or dishes inside a larger pan filled with enough warm water to reach halfway up the dish sides.

  5. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until set. Garnish with lavender blossoms and a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
