The cherries are in season right now. When I invited my friend Elodie for dinner, she brought this delicious
fruit desert. So I decided to add it to my repertoire of receipes. I have another recipe for clafoutis posted in this blog
but I prefer this one.
600 lb of cherry (no need to measure enough to cover the pan)
100 g flour (4/5 cup)
3 eggs
1/4 of sugar of maple sirop (also to taste)
1 cup of milk
1 tsp vanilla extract (also to taste)
50 g (a little more than 3 tbsp butter.
 
Spray your baking pan with cooking spray
1. Put the cherries on the pan. Keep them whole.
2. Beat the eggs and flour with a whisk 
Add sugar, vanilla, milk and butter
Pour the batter over the cherries and bake for 50 min at 350 F or more until the cake is done.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 13 oz cans evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. You will need 6 ramekins or other specialty flan cook ware and a large baking pan to put them in. Mix 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup of water than pour into a warm pan over medium heat. Cook at low medium heat without stirring until it browns and becomes caramel. Quickly pour approximately 2-3 tablespoons of caramel in each ramekin or more if you are using a big one, tilting it to swirl the caramel around the sides.
In a mixer or with a whisk, blend the eggs together. Mix in the milks then the vanilla. Blend smooth after each ingredient is added.
Pour custard into caramel lined ramekins. Place ramekins in a large glass or ceramic baking dish and fill with about 1-2 inches of hot water. (bain marie). Bake for 45 minutes or more in the water bath and check with a knife just to the side of the center. If knife comes out clean, it's ready.
Remove and let cool. Let each ramekin cool in refrigerator for 1 hour. Invert each ramekin onto a small plate, the caramel sauce will flow over the custard.

I love this chocolate gelato recipe; it has a strong taste of chocolate and no cream. I found this recipe in David Lebovitz’s book (Ready for desert).

 

You will need:

5 ounces (140 g ) dark chocolate (70 %)

½ cup Dutch coco powder

2 cup whole milk

Pinch of salt

¾ cup sugar (140 g) (I used 1/3 cup and it was enough for me)

4 large egg yolks

 

Put the chocolate in a large bowl.

In a medium saucepan, whisk the cocoa, 1 cup (250 ml) milk and salt. Bring to full boil and then pour the mixture over the chocolate. Stir until chocolate is melted. Set a mesh strainer across the top of the bowl.

 

Warm the remaining 1 cup of milk with sugar.

 

In a second bowl, whisk egg yolks, then gradually add some of the milk sugar mixture.

Put back on heat and cook , stirring constantly at low heat until custard is thick or coat the spatula (all the bubbles disappear).

 

Pour the custard into the mesh strainer into the chocolate mixture. Mix well.

Refrigerate.

Freeze according the the manufacturer's instructions.
