    Clafouti is a French dessert, half pudding and half cake; very easy to prepare. Fresh cherries are the classic filling; however, if these are not available, use canned tart cherries, (not pie filling), figs, prunes, or halved dried apricots. Nut Warning - Almonds and Almond extract. Eliminate these ingredients from the recipe if your have an intolerance to nuts.

      Very good! I used fresh cheries that I froze earlier this summer. The only two minor changes I made were that I used Brandy extract instead of real Brandy and pecans instead of almonds because I had them on hand. My mother says it would make a great holiday dessert. I agree! Oh, I almost forgot, I used splenda instead of real sugar,too.
