  1. Butter 8 shallow baking dishes and sprinkle on a little sugar, add the cherries. (I did one large one for the live demo but smaller ones always look a little more elegant)
  2. Bring the milk and cream up to the boil with the lemon zest.
  3. Cream the sugar and eggs in a bowl, add the flour, then strain the boiled liquid and whisk in.
  4. Pour over the cherries.
  5. Cook in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for 20min.
  6. To make the crumble place the flour, oats and sugar in a bowl, add the butter and work into the flour and sugar.

To serve cover the top of the clafoutis with the crumble and home made creme anglaise :-)
