Caramelised Apple Clafoutis

Clafoutis is one of my all time favourite desserts.  It's quick, simple and tastes sensational! 

My husband is a big apple fan, so we always end up with an apple version but given that it's cherry season I thought I might give a cherry version a go next week to compare.
