   Clafoutis is a classic French preparation that is sort of a cross between a
   custard and a cake. The traditional recipes call for loads of egg yolks,
   and originally only unpitted cherries were used for the filling (the pits
   supposedly added more flavor). My version replaces a lot of the egg yolks
   with apple sauce, and you can use almost any fruit, such as strawberries,
   raspberries, blueberries, plums, grapes, or cherries.
   Use the butter to grease a 9 inch (approx 25 cm) pie pan. In a bowl beat
   the egg yolk and mix in the applesauce, sugar, flour, milk, and almond
   extract. In another bowl beat the egg whites and the salt until stiff but
   not dry. Fold the egg whites into the applesauce mixture and pour into the
   prepared pie pan. Drop the cherries into the batter - do not press down.
   Bake in a 350F (180C) oven for 20 minutes, until the clafoutis is golden
   and puffy, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
