Strain using a fine sieve. 6) Place 150g of above mix onto the top of each portion of cherries. 7) Place ramekins on a tray with 5 -10 centimetre edge, then create a water bath by pouring water into the tray partway up the ramekins. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 163°C or until the clafoutis is set. Cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then place in the refrigerator.
