Cherries Recipes

Poached Cherry Pavlova, Vanilla Cream and Toasted Pistachios
This is a pretty luxurious recipe, and it's probably one for a dinner party rather than dessert on a worknight, if you know what I mean, but we include so few of those, and this one was too drool-worthy to pass up : )

You can find the recipe and loads of others in Matt Tebbutt’s new book, "Matt Tebbutt Cooks Country", and we’ve included it in our database courtesy of Mitchell Beazley and Octopus Books. Thanks folks!
Cherry & Strawberry Cream
Come June, cherries and strawberries will be in season together in the UK.

Now cherries and strawberries are delicious in their own right. But if you combine them ... Well, as far as we're concerned that's heaven on earth.

Traditional Cherry Clafoutis
This traditional French dessert is so incredibly easy to make, and yet it's remarkably elegant. Certainly, if you use ramekins to make individual ones, it's idea for dinner parties. And yet it's so simple, it's also brilliant for family pudding, and (this is a bit naughty) it's lovely cold for breakfast, with the excuse that it's a bit like having pancakes! Just don't tell anyone we told you so...
Sweet Chestnut Chocolate Brownies
This seasonally nutty variation on a chocolatey cake favourite is scrumptious and takes only three steps ... Three steps to heaven?
