  4. Pour the custard mixture over the cherries.
  5. Bake pudding in the middle of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the top is puffed and springy to the touch.
  6. Sprinkle the top with the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and drizzle evenly with the butter.
  7. Place the pudding in a preheated broiler about 3-inches from the heat for 1 minute, or until it is lightly browned. Serve with the ice cream, if desired.
