Fresh cherry clafoutis
This is a classic French recipe and is wonderful when fresh cherries are in season. Do be careful of your hands as cherries will stain badly and it is not a look that you need with your newly applied manicure! This recipe works well with rhubarb or poached apple when cherries are out of season.

3 large eggs

125g caster sugar

50g corn flour

50g rice flour

½ tsp of gluten-free baking powder

210ml crème fraîche

450g cherries

Butter/margarine and sugar to line dish

Icing sugar to dust

Preheat the oven to 190°C / 375°F/ Gas Mark 5. Grease a 20cm/8in pie dish and sprinkle with sugar.

Lightly whisk the eggs with the sugar by hand for approximately 1 minute until mousse-like.

Sieve the flours and baking powder together. Add this to the egg mixture and whisk, then stir in the crème fraîche.

Prepare the cherries by washing, removing stalks and coring them to remove the stones.

Put the fruit in the prepared dish and pour over the batter.

Cook in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, until golden brown and a skewer comes out dry.

Dust with icing sugar and serve.
