Meringue with Cherries and Baileys Cream


All you need is a meringue case from the supermarket, a punnet of cherries, a tub of ready-whipped cream and a splash of Baileys Cream to make an impressive but simple dinner-party dessert in minutes. Make the dessert just before serving or the meringue will become soft.


300ml whipped cream
1 tablespoon Baileys Cream
1 meringue case
1 punnet of cherries
Icing sugar (optional)


1. Remove the meringue case from the packaging carefully, making sure not to damage it. Have a serving plate ready.

2. Stir the ready-whipped cream and Baileys together in a bowl.

3. Spread the Baileys cream on the meringue case and place the cherries on top. Dust with icing sugar if you wish.

Recipe Note
– You can obviously whip single or double cream instead of buying whipped cream.

– When you buy a meringue case make sure it isn’t broken and carry it home in a separate plastic bag so it doesn’t get crushed.

– Use any liqueur instead of Baileys Cream

TIP: Did you know that Baileys Cream only lasts 6 months so drink it all before then so it doesn’t go to waste.
