Sneaky Summer Berry Trifle for One!
Easy to put together and just as easy to eat.
- 1 ginger biscuit
- Big handful of summer berries
- 1 tbspn sugar
- Double cream
- Vanilla paste/extract/vanilla pods
- Toasted flaked almonds
A delicious impromptu indulgence
1st: Put the sugar and berries into a saucepan and heat through until the berries start releasing their juices and collapse in their skins. I added a splash of plum liqueur! Remove the fruit and reduce the juices to create fruit syrup.
2nd: Whisk the double cream with vanilla paste. Marble the fruit syrup through the cream.
3rd: Start assembling your trifle in individual glasses. Crush a ginger biscuit and pour the rubble into the bottom of a glass. Add the warm fruits and top with the cold cream. Top with toasted flaked almonds.
A delicious impromptu indulgence. The berry juices flow into the ginger biscuit rubble soaking it with the plum liqueur! This works on many levels; texture-wise you’ve got the smooth cream and the crunchy almonds and biscuit, it’s hot and cold – the cold vanilla cream billowing over the warm fruits and finally sweet and tart at the same time!
A final taste of summer before Autumn foods take over!
