Raspberry Mousse June 27, 2016

Raspberry Mousse

 

This lovely sweet raspberry mousse is light and full of a tangy berry flavour. Made with fresh raspberries, this tasty mousse serves 6-8 people and is perfect for parties. It takes 15 mins to make and a little time to set – and is well worth the wait. Top with fresh whipping cream and handfuls of berries for an even naughtier treat.

 

Ingredients

 

135g raspberry flavour jelly

600g frozen raspberries

2 Tbsp icing sugar

170g evaporated milk

 

Method

Dissolve the jelly in 300ml boiling water. Pour the hot mixture over the raspberries and whizz in a blender until well mixed and the fruit is squashed. Tip into a sieve and push the mixture through to get rid of the pips. Stir in the sugar.

Whisk the evaporated milk in another bowl to a thick foam and then mix well into the setting raspberry jelly. Pour the raspberry mousse into a serving bowl and leave to set. Top with more raspberries for serving.

Fresh Cherry Cake with a hint of Cinnamon August 18, 2013

Cherry

Delicious and perfect for a picnic, or even as a pudding, eat it hot with custard or cream.

You could also use other fresh fruits ie: raspberries, peaches, blackberries, apples, apricots, prunes.

 

Ingredients for the base

 

140g self-raising flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

50g caster sugar

1 egg

4 Tbsp milk

85g butter, melted

350g juicy, ripe cherries

 

Ingredients for the topping

 

50g plain flour

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

50g caster sugar

50g butter, at room temperature, diced

 

Method

 

Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Grease and line a 20cm round cake tin, about 5cm deep. Sift the flour, cinnamon and caster sugar into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg, milk and melted butter, then combine with a wooden spoon or electric whisk. Beat well to make a thick, smooth mixture. Spoon into the tin and spread evenly.

Remove the stalks and stones from the cherries, using a pitter if you have one (I don’t) to keep the fruit whole. Scatter the cherries over the mixture and gently press them in.

To make the topping, tip all the ingredients into a bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingers to make a crumb-like mixture, then work the mixture until it comes together in pea-sized pieces. Scatter the topping over the cherries.

Bake for 35 – 40 minutes until a skewer pushed into the centre comes out clean. Leave in the tin until cool enough to handle, then run a knife round the edge, remove the cake from the tin and leave on a wire rack until completely cold.

For a picnic, make the cake up to 24 hours ahead and return it to the clean tin when cold. Dust liberally with icing sugar, then wrap in cling film or foil.
