#10 – Cherry Clafouti

Cherry Clafouti

Pronounced “kla-foo-TEE”, this country-French dessert is made by topping a layer of fresh fruit with batter. The unusual name comes from “clafir”, a dialect word meaning “to fill” (with cherries). It can be made with any ripe fruit, but the classic one, from the Limousin region, is made with unpitted cherries (not out of laziness of the cook, but because the pit provides a special flavour to the flan).

An Italian contribution to summer desserts, “granita” (pr. grah-nee-tah) is a grainy frozen mixture of sugar, water, and a flavoured liquid. Less rich and easier to prepare than its close cousin, the sorbet, “granita” is always a great hit with kids.
