Easy Cherries Jubilee

    5 minutes

    This is my easy version of the classic French dessert where cherries are simmered with brown sugar, then topped with brandy and lit on fire. Serve with ice cream.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 (600g) tin cherry pie filling
    • 1/2 cup (110g) brown sugar
    • 3 tablespoons brandy
    • 1 litre vanilla ice cream

    Preparation:2min  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Ready in:5min 

    1. In a saucepan, stir together the cherry pie filling and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. When it begins to boil, pour the brandy over the top and do not mix. Carefully touch a lit match to the side of the pan to light a flame. Allow the flame to burn out, then mix the brandy into the cherries. Serve hot over scoops of vanilla ice cream.

    if you light it then sprinkle some cinnimon on it you'll get some sparkes!  -  27 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I'll give this recipe 5 stars for how easy it is to make. This is a delicious topping for vanilla ice cream. I used Splenda brown sugar to keep the sugar down and served it as dessert after a romantic Valentines day dinner.  -  15 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    It was really good, but for some reason I was disappointed by the flames. They weren't as spectacular as I thought they'd be.  -  09 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
