This casual fruit-and-custard dessert from the Limousin region of France is the perfect showcase for ripe, sweet cherries which is traditionally used in clafoutis.

Ingredients

low-fat milk

1 cup(s)

regular liquid egg substitute

1 cup(s)

all-purpose flour

cup(s)

sugar

cup(s)

vanilla extract

1 tsp

table salt

tsp, or to taste

fat-free half-and-half

1 cup(s)

cherries

1 pound(s), sweet variety

powdered sugar

1 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 10-inch pie plate or 2-quart shallow baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Pour the milk into a medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on High until hot, about 90 seconds.
  3. Pour the egg substitute into a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in the flour until smooth. Whisk in the sugar, vanilla, and salt, then whisk in the half-and-half and hot milk. Spread the cherries evenly in the prepared dish; pour the batter over. Bake until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Dust the clafouti with the confectioners’ sugar. Cut into 8 wedges and serve warm. Yields 1 wedge per serving.

Notes
