Tomorrow evening we are off for a meal with our friends. I have been making Cherry Frangipani today with a redcurrant and cherry topping for desert. I haven't made this before so before inflicting it on others I needed to try it,eat it.
The Frangipani has Armangnac and almonds. The pastry base has some semolina for a more crunch and it was jolly good.
Cherries from the trees in the orchard. It's been a bumper year for cherries and they are ripe earlier than usual. It has confused the birds who are normally our prime raiders.
