Whole-Cherry Clafoutis

I baked up Martha Stewart’s peach clafoutis early in my blogging career…and now it’s time to feature a classic, French Whole-Cherry Clafoutis.  A clafoutis is a simple, rustic French cake…or as Dorie describes it, “a firm, eggy, flour based pudding.” The texture and flavor reminded me of crepes…no wonder I was an instant fan.
