Easy Summer Cherry and Chocolate Pudding
With such gorgeous warm days at the moment I really don’t want to put on the oven to make pudding, but I still really love a sweet treat so I’ve been experimenting with simple summer puddings. This take on an Eton Mess is delicious and is filled with cherries, chocolate brownie, meringue, lightly whipped cream with a dusting of cocoa powder.
I loved the pitter as it was so quick and easy to use. The portion of cherries were done very fast and I’ve since used it for olives and I can’t believe I used to spend ages cutting pips out.
The dusting wand is my new favourite kitchen gadget! I added a little bit of cocoa powder to it and dusted the finished pudding. It was a such a lovely light dust and completely lump free. Plus when I was done I could easily put any left over cocoa powder pack into the packet.
What is great about this pudding is you can make as much of the elements as you want. You can make the meringue or brownie or buy it ready done from the supermarket.
Ingredients – This makes about 6 nice medium size portions.
-4 Meringue nests
-Chocolate brownies (I used a pack of 20 brownies bites from Tesco)
-300ml double cream
– Cocoa powder
-Whip up the cream until is starts to thicken up and set aside.
-Break up the meringue and put in a bowl.
-Pit the cherries and chop in half.
-Break up the chocolate brownies and put in a bowl.
-In the cups/bowls you want to serve them in start layering up with a mix of of all the lovely ingredients.
-Sprinkle a dusting of cocoa powder on top and serve straight away.
These can be made a few hours or even the day before you need them.
I love the look of them with their cocoa powder dusting.
I was was given the items by OXO for an honest review. The recipe is my own.
