It's cherry time and I like them whole, but when they are too dark, I like them in a cake. Some clafoutis fanatic will advise to leave the pits because they give an almond flavor to the dish, but I hate to watch out for the pits while eating. And I don't want to bare the cost of one of my guest's tooth.
This recipe is so easy and so light. You can also substitute the fruits with raspberries, blueberries, abricot or peaches.
