We’re here to say Clafoutis is one of the simplest French pastries you could ever make and today we are sharing our healthier version.  In this recipe we use super sweet pitted Bing cherries that sit in a puffed/pancake-y type sponge cake. You can imagine it to be the French cousin of a Dutch baby!
