How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to moderate, 325F
  • Brush a glass/ceramic shallow pie plate with melted butter to grease.
  • Spread pitted cherries on the pie plate in a single layer.
  • If using canned cherries, ensure that you drain them thoroughly with a sieve before spreading in the plate. Otherwise they will leak into the batter.
  • In a small bowl whisk the eggs lightly then add the milk and butter. Sift the flour into a large bowl, add the sugar then make a well in the centre.
  • Gradually add the egg mixture to the well, whisking until smooth and free of lumps.
  • Pour the batter over the cherries and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • The batter should have risen and be a golden colour.
  • Cool for at least 5 minutes before dusting with icing sugar.
  • Serve with ice-cream!
  • Serves 6
