Oh my word this is good! This can be a delicious breakfast or a tasty pudding.

1 cup fruit (anything larger than a berry, sliced)
3 eggs
2-3 tbsp sugar of your choice (I used raw cane sugar)
1/2 cup flour
1 cup cream, coconut milk, milk, water or a mixture
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375oF (gas mark 5). Oil a 9" oven proof dish and scatter the fruit over the bottom in a single layer.
Whisk together the eggs and sugar. When they are well combined then start to whisk in the flour, a little at a time. Make sure there are no lumps! When all the flour is well combined then whisk in the remaining ingredients. This should form a thin batter. Pour the batter over the fruit and bake in the oven for about half an hour. The edges should be puffy and browned and the centre just set. Eat fast before the kids wolf the lot! If it should get a chance to cool it is also delicious at room temperature.

Technically if you use a fruit other than cherries this is a 'flaugnarde' rather than a clafoutis. I made mine with cherries, strawberries and blueberries. Banana and strawberry has been requested for next time and I can imagine that apple is totally delicious.
