Surprise Cherries!

This isn’t one of my recipes and is not ‘on diet‘. I’ve not started the diet yet as I’m currently staying with my folks until I find a new flat so I think it’s worth stealing.

Have some leftover cherries? Are they about to go past their best? Try this! My mother surprised me with this tonight, it’s simple and tastes great!


  • 1tbs Sugar
  • Cherries
  • Almond Liqueur (Splash)
  • Corn Flour
  • Splash of Water


  1. Pit the cherries and add to a saucepan
  2. Sprinkle about one tablespoon of sugar
  3. Bring to heat and let the cherries soften a little
  4. Mix a teaspoon of cornflour with some cold water.
  5. Add a tablespoon of Almond Liqueur to the cherries and then mix in the cornflour and water mixture.
  6. Stir & leave the cherries and sauce to cool


Once chilled serve with ice cream or use as pie filling.
