plums + cherries

I had some very tart plums, a bag of cherries and a handful of blackberries. They became this summer fruit clafoutis. Here's how I did it:

3 ripe plums, sliced into slim wedges
about 20 cherries, pits left in
a handful of blackberries

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-pupose flour
1/3 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350 degrees F
Butter a shallow oven proof dish (I used a deep pie plate)
Spread fruit into dish
Mix flour and sugar in a large bowl
Mix eggs, milk and vanilla in another bowl
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients, whisking batter until smooth
Pour batter over fruit mixture
Bake for 40-50 minutes until the batter is firm to the touch and golden on top
Serve warm or at room temperature
