  • 1 x 500 ml fresh custard tub
  • ¼ cup cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Place the cherries in a greased ovenproof dish (1 litre capacity).

Beat together the eggs, custard, cream, sugar and flour until smooth. Pour the mixture over the cherries and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown and set.

Dust with sifted icing sugar and serve warm. Pass around a jug of cream at the table.

Cook’s note: Use poached apple slices instead of cherries – for the cooking method, refer to the recipe for cashew caramel apple custard.
