June is when a wide variety of cherries become available in Ontario! What better way to celebrate the season than with this delicious dessert. Classic clafouti (kla-foo-tee) is a French country pudding usually made with cherries but it can also be made with about 3 cups (750 mL) sliced peeled peaches, pears, plums (unpeeled) or apples.
