- Julia Child’s Cherry Clafouti
Servings: 6 to 8 for dessert or 4 for breakfast
1 1/4 cups milk
2⁄3 cup sugar, divided
1 tablespoon vanilla
1⁄8 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 cup flour
3 cups cherries, pitted
powdered sugar, for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Using a blender, combine the milk, 1⁄3 cup sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and flour then blend.
Lightly butter an 8-cup baking dish, and pour a 1⁄4-inch layer of the blended mixture over the bottom. Set remaining batter aside.
Place dish into the oven for about 7 to 10 minutes, until a film of batter sets in the pan but the mixture is not baked through. Remove from oven (but don’t turn the oven off, yet).
Distribute the pitted cherries over the set batter in the pan, then sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Pour the remaining batter over the cherries and sugar.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 60 minutes, until the Clafouti is puffed and brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm.

Since the “ripe” age of 4, Ashley and Shelby Gotelli have been working in the family cherry business. Their mother, Missy, would put them in cherry outfits and they would hand out samples, asking shoppers at farmers markets to “try a cherry.”
“Since the beginning, those three little words have been ingrained into our minds,” said Shelby Gotelli.
