Fasten your aprons, and let's see how to prepare the cherry pudding.
Wash the cherries under cold running water. Remove the stem, cut it in half and remove the stone (1). Put all the cherries in a bowl together with the sugar, mix well and let macerate for about half an hour.
In a saucepan, sift the flour (2), then add the milk, pouring it in little by little and turn on a very low flame. Add the vanilla seeds and grate the lemon zest. Keep stirring until you will have obtained a thick and homogeneous cream (3).
Add the cherries macerated with the sugar together with their syrup and mix. Pour the still hot cream into the small cups or bowls. Let cool, then cover with plastic wrap and keep the puddings in the refrigerator for about 4 hours before serving.
You can preserve the cherry puddings in the refrigerator for about 3 days, well covered with plastic wrap.
