  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups black cherries pitted
  • 1/4 cup ground almonds
  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Butter a 9″ cast-iron skillet or baking dish. Set aside. Combine milk, cream, sugar, almond extract, vanilla, eggs, and salt in a blender. Blend for a few seconds to mix ingredients, then add the flour and blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
  3. Pour the batter into the buttered skillet, then distribute cherries evenly on top. Sprinkle with the ground almonds. Bake until a skewer inserted into batter comes out clean and a golden brown crust has formed on top, approximately 30 minutes.
  4. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve. Can be served warm or at room temperature.
