De retour! Clafouti aux cerises et aux amandes


Enfin! De retour, et je compte bien m’y remettre de facon plus reguliere. Voici un merveilleux dessert d’ete, un peu plus demandant qu’un clafouti traditionel mais oh combien bon!

1/2 cup whole almonds
1 1/4 cups whole milk

1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup sugar
2 tasses de cerises sucrees

3 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup all purpose flour
Powdered sugar

Blend almonds in processor until ground but not pasty.
Transfer to small saucepan; add milk and bring to simmer.
Remove from heat; let steep 30 minutes.
Pour through fine strainer (moi j’ai utilise une passoire a petits trous, s’agit de ne pas moudre trop fin), pressing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible.
Discard solids in strainer.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Butter 10-inch-diameter glass pie dish; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar. Scatter cherries evenly over bottom of dish.

Using electric mixer, beat eggs, almond extract, salt, and remaining 1/2 cup sugar in medium bowl until well blended.
Add strained almond milk and beat to blend.
Sift flour into egg mixture and beat until smooth.
Pour mixture over cherries.
Bake until set and knife inserted into center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool completely.
Lightly dust clafouti with powdered sugar and serve.
