  • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick lemon extract

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Generously butter a 10-inch round tart pan or gratin dish and dust it with granulated sugar.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer on low-medium speed beat the sugar, eggs, vanilla, lemon and almond extracts together 2 minutes.
  3. Add both flours and salt. Beat on low-medium speed 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the milk and cream and continue beating 3 more minutes.
  5. Pour into the prepared dish and arrange the cherries on top. Sprinkle coarse sugar over top.
  6. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the clafoutis is set in the middle and lightly golden. When the pan is jiggled the center shouldn’t move!
  7. You can eat this warm, at room temperature or chilled. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve with whipped cream.
  8. Store leftovers wrapped tightly in the refrigerator up to 2 days.
