The French name is Soupe aux Cerises, though this is not quite what we expect from a soup.

  • 1.1 lb black cherries pitted
  • 2 tbsp unrefined sugar
  • 1 tbsp kirsch for adults
  • 2 1/2 oz butter
  • 10 slices of baguette
  • 2 oz unrefined sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbsp flour


  • Place the cherries, sugar and kirsch in a saucepan over a medium heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Heat the butter in a frying pan and fry the slices of baguette on each side until golden.
  • Remove the bread, dust with sugar and cinnamon, and place at the bottom of a serving dish. When the cherries arc soft and cooked, remove them from the juice and pile on to the bread.
  • Blend the flour with a little water and, using a balloon whisk, quickly mix this into the warm cherry juice.
  • Gently bring to the boil. The mixture will thicken slightly, becoming velvety. Pour over the bread and cherries, and serve.
