One of my favourite recipes from your other blog


PS Good idea to keep food/recipes sepaarate. Being lazy its easier to look up.

I've been playing about with this recipe. I chopped the cherries up and added them to the mix along with half tsp of vanilla essence. I also added a good slug of Brandy. You may need to adjust the cooking time slightly.

Enjoy I certainly did!

This looks a very tasty recipe idea. (With or without the brandy.)
