Now that cherries are in season this is one of my favourite deserts to make.
You can make it with either fresh or jarred cherries.
This recipe comes originally from my mother in law passed down to her from her mother.
3 tablespoons of flour
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 jar of cherries drained or 1 1/2 cups fresh cherries with pits
1 tablespoon of kirsch ( or brandy)
1 cup of milk
1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar
Mix all ingredients together except vanilla sugar.
Beat and mix in the eggs and kirsch.
Put the cherries in the bottom of an ovenproof dish and pour the batter over the cherries. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 mins. Just before it's finished cooking sprinkle with the vanilla sugar.
Serve at room temperature.
