Cherry Clafoutis or Batter Pudding is a French dessert made with cherries, flour, and Kirsch or fruit liquor. Very appetizing and simple.

Cherry Clafoutis is a dessert I enjoy making when cherries are in season. I had this recipe post for a while but keep forgetting to post it.

When I started blogging, it was all for fun and I was happy to share my recipes, my food adventures, and my misadventures. I got into blogging for the simple reason of sharing recipes that would make people enjoy cooking and enjoy the taste of their labor of love. I only wished I started sooner!

The blogging business is so saturated that sometimes I feel like I am not reaching the number of people I want my recipes or posts to reach. I want to educate, I want to show people that cooking is not that hard, and it is something enjoyable.

How to make Cherry Clafoutis

One easy recipe is Cherry Clafoutis or Cherry Batter Pudding. It is a Batter Pudding but the name Cherry Clafoutis sounds better when mentioning that is it a French dessert. It is true that the French are very good at a patisserie and what better way to feel like you are in Paris than by making a French dessert of course.

When reading the ingredients don’t be discouraged when you see Kirsh or fruit brandy. I have made the same recipe with orange liquor, passion fruit liquor, and cherry liquor. They each have their own distinctive taste but my favorite is the orange liquor. A good brand of orange liquor is the best if you can afford it.

The best way to enjoy a good dessert or baked goods is to use good ingredients. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

  1. I’ve always wanted to try a clafoutis without pitting the cherries. Have you done it before? I’m told it adds to the flavor but I feel like it could be cumbersome to eat…

    1. I’ve always made mine with cherries. The pit taste bitter and impossible to chew. Eating too many pits can cause some harm to the body. This is something to definitely research. But again there are different types of cherries. The ones from back home are not the same in the states.
