Although cherries are coming into season, this is a bit of a cheat’s recipe as it uses frozen cherries. However, it is such a versatile recipe as it can be served warm with some creamy custard, ice cream or cream or even served with a cup of tea for an afternoon treat – whatever takes your fancy. This keeps for 3-4 days in an airtight container.
