here, since she knew her way around French cooking.
Turned out quite straightforward and tasty - a softer texture than I was expecting. It´s a little like popover batter, and not too sweet. I think maybe some toasted almonds on top would be a good addition.
Unfortunately, my only cherry pitter gave up halfway through. So I stewed the rest of the cherries with their stones and am now in the market for a new pitter. Life is too short to be doing it with a knife.
I should plant a sour cherry tree, as I like them better cooked than fresh.
ETA - Clearly this year, Bastille Day was anythng but happy, so I´ve changed the title of the post. My thoughts and best wishes go out to the victims of the tragedy in Nice.
