Cherry Clafoutis

 First of all, I’d like to thank each and every one for the lovely comments and wishes in the previous post. These two months gone so fast.. Being pregnant I’d read somewhere that when you bring a baby home, your life becomes a blur and chaotic. I doubt why is that.. I thought I’d had at least a hour or so between a mealtime. Now I understand how wrong I was. I sleep when I can, shower when I remember and eat when I have a time (needless to say, that now I can eat a cold dinner, which I used to hate before; I reheat my tea a million of times and finally drink it cold). 😀 But! This little guy is worth his weight in gold because he brought an absolute joy into my life. ❤Clafoutis {milkandbun} Last month was a cherry season here.. in supermarkets! Haha. 😀 I adore cherries! I wish they were sold often here so I could eat them every single day! Besides consuming fresh cherries, I made one of the simplest desserts – cherry clafoutis. Lots of sweet cherries in a tender custardish batter, it is a perfect delicious treat.
 Clafoutis is a baked French dessert, traditionally made with stoned cherries. Honestly speaking, may be it’s really authentic and stones add a nice almondish aroma, but I prefer to enjoy every bite of the dessert and do not think about that I can crack teeth.. And of course, if I make it for guests I don’t want them to spit out stones. 😉 Enjoy!

    What a beautiful clafoutis Mila! I agree about the cherry pits–it’s a bit nervewracking to serve an otherwise soft dessert with all the hard pits hiding underneath. Glad to hear that motherhood is tiring but treating you very well 🙂

  2. Mila, it’s so good to see you post and the clafoutis is beautiful. Sounds like you have your hands full with your little bundle of joy. I am with you about pitting the cherries, I know it’s tradition to leave the pits in but someone can bite down on a pit and do damage to their teeth.

      Hi Rotwein! Glad you remember me/my blog)) haha)) The delivery, caring of newborn, sleep when you remember, it was a hard time for me.. But now is much more easier, but still have a little time; nowadays simple and super speedy dishes are preference. But I do remember about my lovely blog))
      Thanks for visiting

      • Hello again. Good to hear from you!! Of course I remember you and your LOVELY blog! Still bake your kasekuchen and trying it without quark. I will reblog your post sometime later!

  3. Looks delicious and I’m surprised by the simplicity of the ingredients – and although I can’t relate to the new baby craziness I am feeling it for my sister who is about to have her first and I think she feels it will all be plain sailing…..

    Having raised two children, I understand how you basically have no control over your life! I’ve often mentioned to moms with blogs that I truly don’t know how they manage. And I really don’t! I’m retired and the blog is like a time-consuming job – but one I love. Good luck with everything! Especially sleeping!
