Berries & fruit; nature’s candy
Isn’t a handful of berries, sun-warmed and juicy, so much more satisfying than a sugary candy? I think so! Whether it’s blueberries, raspberries, cherries or peaches that make you swoon, you’ll be finding them all at the Farmers Market now. Summer is here and the berries are in.
Check out a quick and easy fruit recipe below, in case you have anything left uneaten.

This week’s recipe:
CHERRY CUSTARD CLAFOUTIS
From David Lebovitz
- 1 ¼ pounds (570g) sweet cherries
- 3 large eggs, at room temperature
- ½ cup (70g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
- ½ cup (100g) plus 3 tablespoons (45g) sugar
- 1 1/3 cup (330ml) whole or lowfat milk
Softened butter, for preparing the baking dish
1.Preheat the oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Smear a 2-quart (2l) shallow baking dish liberally with butter.
2. Stem and pit the cherries. Lay them in a single layer in the baking dish.
3. In a standard blender, or using an immersion blender and a bowl, mix the eggs, flour, vanilla and almond extracts, ½ cup sugar, and milk together until smooth.
4. Pour the batter over the cherries and sprinkle the fruit and batter with the 3 tablespoons of sugar.
5. Bake the clafoutis until the custard is just set; a knife poked in the center should emerge relatively clean. It’ll take about 45 minutes.
Serving: The clafoutis can be served warm, at room temperature, or cold. It’s traditionally not served with any accompaniment.
Storage: The Clafoutis can be made up to one day in advance, and refrigerated overnight.
