Cherry pie cooked in a pressure cooker. A classic, rustic French dessert that is perfect for breakfast or dessert, this cherry clafouti is made in a pressure cooker.

What is acherry clafouti?

A cherry clafouti is a French dessert made with cherries, eggs, sugar, and flour. It is cooked in the oven for a short time before it is served.

The dish gets its name from its similarity to the traditional French dessert called “clafouti” which means ‘to break open’ in Occitan. The dish was first invented by chef Michel Guérard and has been popularized by chef Julia Childs.

Can I put other fruit in my cherry clafouti?

Yes, you can put other fruit in your cherry clafouti. Some people use other types of berries such as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. Others use apples, pears, or peaches.

What does the crust taste like in this dessert?

The crust of a clafouti is supposed to be crispy and should taste like a really good cookie.

In the case of a cherry clafouti, the crust should be light and buttery. It has to be thin enough so that it doesn’t get soggy, but thick enough so that it doesn’t break when you take a bite.
