Mooooore cherries! Yes, some left after Pancake Day so I thought that they will be just perfect for a pudding.
And here is my yummy Valentines Dessert . Enjoy!
Cherry and Yoghurt Layered Puds
Serves 3-4 (depanding on glass size)
200 g cherries in syrup, pitted (plus few reserved for garnish)
100 ml rose wine or red wine
2-3 tbsp granulated sugar
300 ml natural yoghurt
4 tbsp honey
5-6 small sponge cakes, broke into little pieces (alternatively you can use digestive biscuits, crushed)
150 double cream
2 tbsp caster sugar
Place cherries, syrup, granulated sugar and wine in a pan. Gently heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Simmer for 10 minutes until the liquid is syrupy and then set aside and let it cool.
In a bowl, mix yoghurt and honey.
And in a separate bowl, place double cream and sugar and whip till thick.
Layer the yoghurt with honey, crushed sponge cakes or biscuits and cherries with syrup in tall serving glasses, ending with a layer of whipped cream.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Just before serving use remaining cherries to decorate the desserts.
