An Easy Old-Fashioned Cherries Jubilee Recipe to Swoon Over

Photography by Jenny Huang

Making your partner swoon over with an elegant dessert on Valentine’s Day (or anytime, really!) doesn’t have to require hours of preparation. Sometimes, the simplest recipes are the most impressive. Case in point, this warm and boozy Cherries Jubilee served over creamy ice cream.

Chef Claire Saffitz takes the traditional dessert sauce to another level with this old-fashioned Cherries Jubilee, which is featured in her new cookbook, What’s For Dessert? Saffitz’s version retains the deep red hue and tartness of a typical Cherries Jubilee, but switches up the booze for an exciting twist that will literally ignite the night. (Yes, you light this dessert on fire!)
