Clafoutis

My JBQ loves this (traditionally French) fruit pie. You can use either fresh cherries or pears, or a bit of frozen mango. Don’t use frozen or dried pear or cherries though.

Ingredients (for 5-6)
* 400 gr fresh cherries or pears
* 4 eggs
* 50 gr butter
* 250 ml milk
* 125 gr sugar (use honey for Paleo version)
* 60 gr flour (use coconut flour for Paleo version)

Execution
1. Melt the butter in a saucepan in very low heat. Preheat oven at 200 C (355 F).
2. Beat the eggs and sugar in a big bowl using a mixer.
3. Add the flour slowly and continue to beat the mixture.
4. Add the butter in the mixture and continue to beat.
5. Add the milk slowly and continue to beat the mixture for a few more seconds.
6. Using your (clean) finger get the butter that’s left in the saucepan and spread it in your oven dish.
7. Wash the cherries under cold water, remove their sticks. You can remove the pits if you want to, but the original recipe calls for whole cherries.
8. Spread the cherries in the oven dish, beat the mixture for 5 more seconds, and then spread that mixture atop the cherries.
9. Bake in the oven for about 30-40 minutes until golden (not as much as in my picture though, I was on the phone and I overcooked it a tiny bit).
10. Eat it warm (not hot and not too cold either).
