When you get invited to a pot luck before an outdoor summer movie, what do you bring?
If you are like me, you take a look in your fridge, creating on the spot.
I had 2 pounds of fresh bing cherries when we got the invite. Knew that this particular host family was also gluten free.
So a fresh cherry clafoutis gluten-free was in order.

A clafoutis is a lovely tender cake made with fresh fruit, butter, cream and eggs.
Traditionally, the cherries aren’t pitted to allow the almondy flavor of the pits to enhance the cherries.

My family prefers to just eat the cake instead of spitting pits. So I picked up my new Oxo Cherry Pitter and had a great time pitting the cherries in a flash.
