The clafoutis, in the most traditional sense, features one of the prized fruits grown in the Limousin region: the black cherry. With the increased popularity of the recipe, however, chefs from outside Limousin have started creating their own variations of this traditional cake dessert. Suddenly, other fruits like pears, apples, plums, blackberries and more made their way as the feature fruit into these desserts.
