16 Fabulous French Recipes (Slideshow)


13. Cherry Clafoutis

1 1/4 Cups milk
2/3 Cup sugar, divided
3 Eggs
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/8 Teaspoon salt
2/3 Cup sifted all-purpose flour
Butter for baking dish
3 Cups pitted black cherries
Powdered sugar for sprinkling

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly Butter a 7-8 cup baking dish.
2. In a blender on the highest speed, blend milk, 1/3 cup sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and flour for about 1 minute. Pour some of the batter into butter baking dish, so that it’s about 1/4 inch. Place the dish over a moderate heat for 1-2 minutes, until there’s a film of batter on the dish. Remove dish from heat. Pour the cherries over the batter, sprinkle the remaing 1/3 cup sugar over cherries, and pour remaining batter over the cherries. Using the back of a spoon, smooth the surface of the batter.
3. Bake for one hour, or until the clafouti has browned, puffed, and a knife comes out clean when tested in the center. Sprinkle some powdered sugar over the top before serving.

Some of these sound so good, but there seems to be something missing on 2 of them:
1. In the Gougères instructions, #2. Add milk, water, butt and salt to a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan. Tu
I figure 'butt' = butter, but, what is the 'Tu' at the end?
2. In the Potato Salad ingredients second from the bottom, after fresh tarragon, it says
1 Tablespoon ....... (there is nothing there). If I make it, what am I leaving out???

I already copied these 2 recipes, but is there anything missing???

So what's up with the fast food chains and bacon?
