If you want that little indulgence without too much fat, check this Food Nation Radio Network dessert out. It’s not too sweet, I promise. Cherries in season are one of my favorite things and combined with a little semisweet chocolate, it’s “over the top” good! Ingredients (organic, if possible)
Cherry Chocolate Clafoutis… Oh Yeah – Recipe
1 pat of butter to grease the pie dish
2 1/2 cups pitted, ripe cherries
3/4 cup whole milk
1 tsp vanilla
4 oz semisweet chocolate
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a glass pie dish and add cherries. Set aside. In a medium bowl add milk, egg and vanilla. Whisk to combine. Melt chocolate over a double-boiler. Allow to cool slightly. In another medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add chocolate to liquid mixture, whisking to combine. Add dry mixture to liquid mixture, whisking until just combined. Pour over cherries in pie dish. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out nearly clean. Serve warm.
