Take care! Never mention apple or pear clafoutis ... to a Corrézien, in that case it's a flognarde because clafoutis is one of Correze's unmissable specialities, and of course it's made with cherries. It's a dessert traditionally and exclusively made with whole, unpitted cherries (woe betide you if you remove the stones, they're what give it the flavour!) and entirely covered with a thick pancake batter.

It's well known that the best recipe is always our grandmother's!

But here's a recipe you can't beat!
