  • 300ml pot double cream
  • 4 shop-bought meringue nests, roughly broken
  • 50g dark chocolate
  • 8 tbsp cherry compote (we used Bonne Maman)



    One of the delights of the summer, cherries are much loved for their succulent texture, flavour…


  1. Whip the cream to soft peaks, then fold in the meringue pieces. Heat the chocolate in the microwave for 30-45 secs or until melted, stirring halfway through. Spoon 2 tbsp cherry compote into each of 4 glasses, then top with the meringue mix. Drizzle melted chocolate on top of each glass and serve.

I had some compote to use up and my flatmate's parents were coming round for supper at short notice, so I threw together this pudding and it was a great cheat!

Delicious! I used cherry pie filling instead of the compote and it all tasted really good.
