Chocolate and cherry puddings, gooey in the centre with a cherry brandy sauce.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas if you celebrate. We had a lovely day a quiet one but lovely and now were off home to Derbyshire to see our families and continue the celebrations. Well your probably all still completely stuffed from all the turkey, cheese, Christmas pudding and trifle. A chocolate cherry pudding is probably the last thing on your mind. But it will soon be New Years and I thought Id give you a special desert you could try if your eating in.
Black forest is one of my favourite flavours and these little chocolate and cherry puddings encompass everything I love in a desert. The recipe is slightly adapted from one of my favourite patisserie chefs Richard Bertinet. The puddings are rich from the chocolate which is a delicate, moist sponge. Runny, fondant like in the middle with cherry compote and whole cherries. And a cherry brandy sauce drizzled all over it. Its a truly sumptuous desert and will really impress anyone you make it for. Its also very quick and easy just don’t overcook them because the key is the runny centres.
We haven’t made plans for New Years yet but I’m sure it will involve food. Thank you for continuing to read figs and pigs and for all your support. I hope you all have a wonderful celebration and a happy, healthy 2018. I will be back here just after the 1st of January with another recipe, some reflections on the past year, intentions for the New one and some updates on what to expect here on Figs and Pigs in 2018.
