First and foremost wishing all the mommies a happy Mother’s Day ?
I would like to dedicate today’s post to my lovely mommies, my mom and mom in law:) who have been amazing mother’s standing strong through all the bumps in the road , setting an example for me to follow. I now understand what it takes to be a mother only after being one , this makes me realize and appreciate all their sacrifices even more. Love you both ☺️
I’m silently wishing myself a happy Mother’s Day and celebrating the same , since my son is too small to understand all the hoopla surrounding this day!
So to celebrate this day,I made this cherry clafoutis! Have you heard of clafoutis? Perhaps,If you are from France , you may be like, really ?? Are you serious ?
Okay so this piece of information is for those of you who are unaware of this simple yet beautiful dessert. Clafoutis is a baked French dessert , wherein fruits (traditionally unpitted cherries) are placed at the bottom of a generously buttered baking dish followed by a thick dense pancake like batter poured over it, and baked to a lovely golden brown crust. It’s best served warm, with whipped cream or creme fraiche or even ice cream
This dessert originated in the French region of Limosine , known for its abundance of cherry produce. This can easily be made with any other seasonal fruits too.
This recipe was shared with me by a good friend,JCL, a health conscious foodie, who travels a lot , sometimes business travel , the other times being leisure travel.He’s well versed with a variety of cuisines . He mailed me this recipe almost a year ago ! I was just lazy then, and never got to making it ! And then today arrived , I made it , relished it and had a quiet joyous day celebrating it with my precious son ?
What are you waiting for ? Go try this ! It’s as easy as 1 2 3 ! Serve it warm for dessert or even breakfast , I bet you will love it! Of course you can thank me,or rather my friend later ?
