1/4 cup unsalted butter

1 to 1 & 1/2 pounds of cherries, pitted

1/3 cup granulated sugar / caster sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch / corn flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup all-purpose flour / plain flour

1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

sweetened whipped cream or ice cream, and toasted sliced almonds


1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Place a 10-inch skillet or a 1-quart baking pan in the oven.

3. Carefully add the butter to the hot skillet and allow the butter to melt until it begins to foam and brown around the edges.

4. Stir together the cherries, sugar, cornstarch, and vanilla extract. Set aside. Stir together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk, and stir just until combined. It should be similar in consistency to pancake batter. A few lumps are fine.

5. Carefully remove the hot skillet with the browned butter from the oven. Pour the batter over the butter without stirring.

6. Spoon the cherry mixture evenly on top of the batter.

7. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.

8. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream and toasted almonds.

Bon Appetit!
