Oh my, am I the worst or what!? Where have I been? Up to my eyeballs in assignments and exams; socialising like a celebrity; sulking because it's getting too dark too early to take nice photos; and generally eating out or really badly and not wanting to let you all know! But here is a little something to let you know I'm still capable of creating nice things in the kitchen: my very first cherry pie.
I followed the recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking, and was pleased at how straightforward it was. For some reason I thought a cherry pie would be really difficult to make, but considering the fruit is ready to use straight out of a jar (I used Morello cherries) there's actually less prep-work needed that an apple or peach pie. I let the filling sit for a little too long, and I think this caused the corn flour to not thicken and dissolve as much as it should have, but this was still pretty amazing. Extremely sweet, but amazing.
The next one I make needs to be served at a Twin Peaks marathon with a whole lot of hot black coffee.
