Clafoutis is a classic French dessert which can be made with various different fruit, but the traditional way is with cherries (cerises) which is the version we’ve opted for this time. The beauty of this pudding is that it’s easy and cheap but will always impress, so can be as much for every day as for when you’re entertaining.
