Best ever cherry recipes

Cherries are a really grown-up, indulgent fruit to use in puddings and cakes. The sharply sweet flavour cuts through sponges and tarts to make a distinctive dessert. Try classic bake well tart or sugar crusted cherry pie, or go for a more modern treat such as fresh cherry and coconut lamingtons and cherry blondie tart.

Black forest cheesecake

This dark, indulgent chocolate cheesecake swirled with raspberries is a great showstopper for any occasion. Making the chocolate collar is really worth the effort for an extra special touch.


Sugar-crusted cherry pies

Morello cherries in jars or tins make a great store cupboard ingredient so you can knock up these individual sweet pies at a moment’s notice. The sugar topping gives a crunchy finish to the pastry.

Fresh cherry and coconut lamingtons

Lamingtons, originally from Australia, make a delicious teatime treat. Mini cakes, decorated in cherry jam and desiccated coconut, topped with a fresh cherry.

Bakewell tart

These individual cherry Bakewells have the beautifully British combination of buttery almond filling, sharply sweet cherries and shortcrust pastry, topped with toasted almonds.

Black forest brownies

Black forest brownies combine two of our favourite sweet treats. This brownie/black forest gâteau mash-up is boozy, cherry-studded, chocolatey heaven. Add a big dollop of kirsch spiked cream if you can handle it.

White forest trifle

This trifle is an easy and stylish Christmas dessert to make during the festive season or all year round. Ready in only 30 minutes, our white forest cake will become a crowd favourite in no time.

Cherry almond crumbles

These individual pots of cherry-deliciousness couldn’t be simpler to make, the perfect baking project with the kids. Flaked almonds add a sweet crunch everyone will love.

Cherry blondie tart

A delicious recipe for a chocolate tart. Readymade pastry makes this easy, but it’s still special enough to serve friends and family. Cherries and white chocolate are a surprisingly good combo.

Upside-down cherry torte

Summer berry season is in full swing, so make the most of it with this show-stopping cherry torte. Delicious and easy to make, this dessert is great for entertaining.
