Recipe: Chocolate Clafoutis

About This Recipe

Well… its French. How do I describe this delicious dessert? It is like a cross between a custard and a cake. Is my recipe traditional? Probably not. I’ll let you know for sure the first time I am able to get to France. Does it taste good? Yes. In fact, it’s very good. It also bakes rather quickly. If you want to be “traditional” then replace the chocolate with cherries. If you can’t decide which one you want, use both. The chocolate will sink to the bottom. It is supposed to. In the end you get a bite 3 layers. One chocolate, one custard/cake, and one of pure cake.
