This dessert is dense, velvety, and packed with fresh cherries. It is gorgeous, but it is easier to make than you think. In fact, it is one of the easiest French desserts that you can put together in just under an hour.



Softened butter (for pan)

1 1/2 cups cherries (sweet or tart, halved, and pits removed)

4 large eggs

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 cup milk

1 tablespoon amaretto

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Powdered sugar (for serving)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and then grease a 9-inch round baking dish with butter.
  2. Arrange cherries in an even layer in the pan.
  3. Place eggs and sugar in a blender and blend until frothy.
  4. Add milk, flour, salt, and amaretto. Blend until combined and then pour batter over cherries.
  5. Bake for about 35 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  6. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.


  • Using amaretto is highly recommended for this recipe. But if you don’t have it, you can use 1 tablespoon of almond extract instead.
  • This dessert is best served warm or at room temperature.
