    NorthwestGal's Note:

    This is my favorite dessert to make at home. It's easy, and the end result is rather impressive. The key to a successful flambe is to be sure the brandy is heated over low heat. That way, it slowly reaches the appropriate temperature but retains it's alcohol content, which is important for it to ignite. For this recipe, canned Cherry Pie Filling is not a suitable substitute for canned cherries. [A little history of this dessert dish....It was well known that cherries was Queen Victoria's favorite fruit, and legendary French chef Auguste Escoffier created this impressive dish to honor Queen Victoria on the occasion of either her Golden Jubilee in1887 or her Diamond Jubilee in 1897.] This is a simplified version of this scrumptious dessert that can easily be made at home.

      Thanks for a lovely recipe. Have made many different recipes for cherries jubilee but enjoy this one the most. I think adding the red currant jelly takes it a step above the norm. Highly recommended and easy for beginner cooks.

      Followed the recipe right on down to the end & enjoyed every minute of it, from the preparation to the presentation to the eating ~ VERY, VERY NICE! My mom used to make something like this but used a sugar cube (soaked in alcohol) on top of each serving & brought them flaming to the table! Thanks for a great recipe!
