Recipe Notes
Note #1- Either a 9 or 10 inch cast iron pan, a 9 or 10 inch pie pan or a baking pan of similar size may be used. However, cast iron will help the edges of the Clafoutis to puff.
Note #2- To prepare frozen cherries, place in a colander and allow to completely defrost. Dispose of cherry juice.
For fresh cherries, pit using a cherry pitter
