The batter for this traditional French dessert is somewhere between that of a cake and a custard. It takes no more than 10 minutes to prepare the batter in the blender.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 Cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons brandy
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (12-ounce) package frozen cherries, thawed
  • Confectioners' sugar, for serving

Directions

Pre-heat the outdoor grill. Generously coat a 10-inch skillet with butter. Process the eggs and next 5 ingredients until well blended. Add the flour and process until smooth and well blended. Scatter the cherries in the prepared skillet and pour the batter over them. Place on grill over indirect heat and "bake" until puffed and golden, about 40-45 minutes. Lightly dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving.

Cherry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cherry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
