Cherry Pie

French.Palate's picture
Fruit pies have always been my favorite and this Cherry Pie is simply exceptional that I make it every time I get to manage a few cherries. Also, this Cherry Pie recipe has brandy flavor and this is sure to take you by surprise!
  Black cherries 1 1⁄2 Pound
  Brandy 1 Tablespoon
  Plain flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Eggs 3 , separated
  Castor sugar 2 Ounce
  Butter 1⁄2 Ounce

Butter a 3 pint (7 1/2 cup) ovenproof dish.
Sprinkle the unstoned cherries with the 2 tablespoons (2 1/2T) sugar and the brandy and leave for about 30 minutes.
Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl.
Add the egg yolks and enough of the milk and water to make a pouring batter.
Whisk the egg whites with the remaining sugar until they form stiff peaks, then fold them into the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared dish and spoon the cherry mixture over.
Dot with butter.
Bake at 375°F, Gas Mark 5 for about 40 minutes until well risen, firm and golden brown.
Serve with sugar and cream.
