Madagascar Vanilla Bean Fruity Clafouti Recipe

Madagascar Vanilla Bean Fruity Clafouti Recipe

Clafouti - [kla-foo-TEE] This country-French dessert of fresh cherries and a baked custard is like nothing you have ever tasted. Some are cake-like while others are more like a pudding.



60 minutes




6 servings


  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp Cognac or rum
  • 1 tsp Rodelle Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Rodelle Vanilla Bean, split and scraped
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 pound sweet cherries, pitted (frozen cherries, thawed and patted dry, or canned cherries, drained and dried can be used)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Butter a 10 inch deep-dish pie pan, or 6 custard cups
  • Beat the eggs and sugar until frothy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the milk, Cognac or rum and Rodelle Vanilla Extract and the Rodelle Vanilla Bean seeds and beat until smooth.
  • Stir in the flour and salt.
  • Distribute the cherries evenly over the bottom of the custard cups or the pie pan.
  • Pour the batter over the cherries and place the cups or pie pan on a baking sheet.
  • Bake the clafouti for 10 minutes: reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake until the top has puffed (it will sink on cooling) and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes.
  • Transfer to a rack and cool for about 20 minutes
  • Dust with confectioners’ sugar. Serve in wedges.
