I am always looking for something new….and this one fits the bill. Can be a breakfast item (special occasion) or a lovely dessert to be paired with an ice wine (chilled) and it would be absolutely YUMMY.
- 2 large eggs, plus 1 large egg yolk
- 1/3 cup flour
- 3/4 cup creme fraiche
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp. Kirsch
- pinch of salt
- 1 lb. whole cherries (not pie filling)
- icing sugar for dusting
Brush a 9 inch baking dish with butter and sprinkle with sugar, being sure to shake off excess. I would use berry sugar for this step.
Whisk together the eggs, yolk and milk. When well blended, whisk in the creme fraiche, milk, sugar, Kirsch, and salt.
Arrange cherries evenly on the bottom of the baking dish and carefully strain the egg mixture over the cherries.
Bake until the center is set and is beginning to lightly brown around the edges. This will take about 35-40 minutes.
Let this cool slightly and sprinkle with icing sugar. OMG! Yummy!
