Recipe for Cherry Calfoutis

I love cherry season!  The bright tartness of cherries, balanced with sweet is a delicious combination.  You can extend the season and avoid all of those cherry pits by using frozen tart cherries.  This is my favorite cherry recipe.  It is easy to assemble, makes for a beautiful presentation and the Loganberry Inn B&B guests love it as much as I do.  It is best served warm.  Enjoy!

Loganberry Inn Cherry Clafoutis

12 ounces frozen tart cherries
2 large eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup whole milk www.loganberryinn.com
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Cooking Spray
Preheat an oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Butter the bottom and sides of deep dish pie pan. Place the cherries into a colander and allow to thaw completely before using. Discard the juice, I use the juice in smoothies. Spread the cherries evenly over the bottom of the pie pan.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until frothy and lightened in color. Add the milk, vanilla and flour and whisk to combine. Pour the batter over the cherries.
Bake on the middle rack, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until golden on top and a knife comes out clean when inserted into the middle.
Allow to cool for 30 minutes, dust with powdered sugar, slice and serve warm.  Yummy!

Wonderful Restaurants in Walking Distance

We are lucky to have several outstanding restaurants in walking distance from the inn.
Beks, a chef-owned restaurant with a creative menu is always delicious.  I am addicted to the authentic Cajun and Creole cuisine at Fontenot’s.  Playhouse Bistro always satisfies with a great soup and sandwich for a delicious lunch.  The authentic from scratch calzones are my favorite at Brooklyn Pizza.  1851 Tap and Grille have the best burgers and wings with 6 different sauces.  Fulton CafĂ© with authentic Cuban fare such as Camarones Enchilados are superb.  China Palace has the best Chinese fare for many miles.  And the newest, The Copper Mine Restaurant has awesome ambiance and food.

I am teaching cooking class in St. Louis today.  I have been a guest chef at Dierbergs Markets Cooking School since September of 2004.  The classes are a lot of fun for me and my pupils.  I love the interaction of the guests, just like I do at the inn.  If we are not laughing the class is not successful in my view.  I believe you have to have a sense of humor in life and certainly in the kitchen.  I think my sense of whimsy combined with my belief in "no fear" gives me the latitude to be creative in the kitchen.  I have learned if it works...write it down!  If it doesn't, no big deal, there is always a next time.  Happy experimenting to all of you!
Until next time...Cathy
