Cherry Clafoutis

I doubt if there is anyone who has not heard of Julia Child. Julia Child and her recipes are iconic to say the least. Known popularly from her PBS show 'The French Chef' and someone who demystified French Cooking and the cuisine, I have only seen her cook scrambled eggs in one of the episodes.
"You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients." - Julia Child
Clafoutis (Pronounced as klä-fü-ˈtē/kla-foo-TEE) is a french dessert which can also be served for breakfast. Typically desserts carry a wide range of ingredients with very methodical and elaborate procedures.Often they also come with tongue twister names. This dish is as easy as it can get.True to the quote above!!
