Ingredients

  • Oil for greasing
  • 450g (1lb) fresh cherries, pitted or 400g can pitted black cherries, drained
  • 4 tablespoons kirsch or cherry brandy
  • 100ml (4 fl oz) milk
  • 150ml (1/4 pint) whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 4 large British Lion eggs
  • 100g (3 1/2 oz) caster sugar
  • 25g (1oz) plain flour

  2. Put the milk, cream and vanilla in a pan and heat until almost boiling. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until creamy, add the flour and beat until smooth. Pour over the hot milk and mix well. You can leave the mixture to stand for up to 1 hour.

#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfriday
