Summer Desserts

Hi all,

I’m so sorry for the huge delay since my last blog post – I’ve simply just been too busy! Hopefully I’ll be able to post more frequently now, starting from today with this recipe from the summer that I created. It’s a simple dessert that combines some of my favourite summer flavours, and so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

 


 

Ingredients (to serve 4):

Just before adding the Pimms in Stage 3 of the recipe

 

  • 4 scones
  • Jam of any flavour (I used strawberry)
  • 4tbsp clotted cream
  • a handful of mint
  • 4tbsp Pimms (optional)
  • a handful of strawberries (plus 4 slices for serving)
  • a handful of cherries (plus 2 for serving)
  • 4tbsp whipped double cream
  • Cocoa/cacao for dusting

 

 


 

Method:

  1. In 4 ramekins, crumble half of the scones (into pieces of around 1cm)
  2. Add the jam followed by the clotted cream and around 3-4 mint leaves, cut into small pieces
  3. Evenly pour the Pimms over the desserts
  4. Add the strawberries, cherries and then crumble the rest of the scones over the desserts
  5. Top with the whipped cream, a light dusting of cocoa/cacao and a slice of strawberry and cherry.

Tips:

  1. Make sure you eat this dessert as soon as possible, as the scone tends to dry out quickly!
  2. If you don’t have Pimms, you could also soak the scones with orange juice
