A clafoutis is a French pudding made with black cherries covered in a spongey flan-likebatter and originates from the Limousin region. The name clafoutis actually derives from the country's southern spoken language, Occitan, and means 'to fill'. Presumably this meant to fill the cherries with bater, but I like to imagine that it means 'to fill you up'. It is a relatively 'new' dessert, only really coming into popularity in the 19th century, which is quite surprising, because flans have been around since the Middle Ages. Based on the brands I used, each portion is 138 calories.
