I picked up some cherries from the farmer’s market this weekend and this seemed like a great way to use them.
2 cups fresh cherries, pitted
2 T slivered almonds
1 cup sugar
1 T brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/8 tspn. salt
1 cup milk
3/4 tspn. almond extract
1 1/2 tspns. vanilla extract
Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Butter and lightly flour a 10×7 baking dish. Toss in the cherries and slivered almonds.
Whisk the eggs, sugars, salt and flour until smooth. Add the milk and extracts. Whisk again and pour into the baking dish.
Bake for 40-50 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let cool for 15-20 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar and serve.
What did the family think? Our oldest liked the custardy part of the dessert, but passed on the cherries. I liked it, but it is sweet. It may be a little too sweet for my palate.
