Profiterole wreath with cherries

This is a lovely festive dessert recipe with profiteroles stuffed with Crème pâtissière and arranged in a wreath around a pile of fresh cherries. Christmas is not even Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere without cherries. My favourite fruit of all time. Their season is short and it’s best to jump on board as soon as it starts.

Cherry Time delivers boxes of fruit directly from their farm in Worcester to your door during the season. There is no better or easier way of procuring this delicious stone fruit. They are picked off the tree and packed straight away minimizing any delays in handling and processing. They are the freshest they can be and will last for ages if you let them.


Crème pâtissière

  • 2 cups (455g) whole milk
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  • 115gm or ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 30gms or 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt (if you are using unsalted butter otherwise omit this)
  • 4 large free-range egg yolks
  • 30gms or 2 Tbsp butter


  • 120ml milk
  • 120ml water
  • 115gm butter
  • 3 large free-range eggs (whole)
  • 145gms flour (cake or all-purpose)

To assemble the wreath:

  • ¼–1/2 cup whipped cream (optional)
  • 2 cups of fresh cherries
  • Icing sugar for dusting
  • Sprigs of fresh rosemary dusted in icing sugar for garnish

Cherry icing glaze: (optional):

  • 150gms icing sugar
  • 105gms cherry preserve or jam
