Cherry Chocolate Clafoutis

Serves 6.


    Cherry Chocolate Clafoutis

    Nothing’s more French than the clafoutis, and this version ups the flavour ante with chocolate, so it is best enjoyed warm.


    Cherry Chocolate Clafoutis


    • 1 cup (250 mL) pitted and quartered cherries
    • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) Kirsch
    • 2 free-range, organic eggs
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 1/3 cup (30 mL) organic sugar
    • 3 oz (85 g) 66% organic dark or bittersweet chocolate, melted
    • 1 cup (250 mL) milk
    • 1 cup (250 mL) whipping cream
    • 1 cup (250 mL) ground almonds
    • 3 Tbsp (45 mL) all-purpose flour
    • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) cocoa powder
    • 2 vanilla beans, pulp only
    • 3 oz (85 g) 66% organic dark or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
    • Whipped cream for garnish



    Preheat oven to 350 F (180C).


    Butter and lightly sugar six shallow ramekins or creu0300me bruu0302leu0301 dishes, 6 inches (15 cm) in diameter. Place cherries and Kirsch in bowl.


    Place eggs, egg yolks, and sugar in a kitchen mixer with a whisk attachment and mix until smooth. Mix in melted chocolate. Slowly add and mix in milk and cream. Fold ground almonds, flour, cocoa, and vanilla into batter.


    Divide cherries and Kirsch among the ramekins, then add chocolate pieces. Fill ramekins to the top with batter, about 1/4 cup (60 mL) per dish. Bake in oven for about 15 minutes, or until cake is done (a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean).


    Place each ramekin on a plate and garnish with either whipping cream, frozen yogurt, or ice cream.

    Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate Molasses and Smoky Red Pepper Hummus

    Many of us have discovered the magic of roasting Brussels sprouts to completely transform them, imparting rich, nutty flavour. Skewered on toothpicks, they’re perfect for a party appetizer. When drizzled with pomegranate molasses and paired with a smoky red pepper hummus dip assembled from cupboard ingredients, they’re next level—all while being an absolute cinch to put together. Prepping the sprouts If you’ve spent hours in the past peeling and trimming sprouts, you’ll love this simple tip to make things go faster. Simply trim the bottom end and then make a slice straight down the middle of each sprout. Any excess outer leaves will fall off, saving you the fiddly job of peeling them.
