Layered Dessert


  • 250 ml lightly whipped double cream,

  • 4 tbsp Mascarpone,

  • 1 vanilla pod, seeds scraped out

  • 8 Biscuits of your choice

  • 1 splash eau-de-vie (colourless fruit liqueur), 40-80% proof, or vodka,

  • selection of seasonal fruits


  • 1.

    Crumble the biscuits into the bottom of glasses and add the alcohol, in my case eau de vie and let it soak in while we cut up the fruit to go on top. This can be soft ripe fruit when in season or slightly cooked fruit with a little sugar added.

  • 2.

    Next comes a layer of fruit and/or fruit coulis sauce.

  • 3.

    Next comes a layer of cream which I have made a little more rich by adding mascarpone and mixing it well.

  • 4.

    Cut the vanilla pod, scrape out the seeds and add for extra flavour.

  • 5.

    Then start the layers all over again for a simple delicious dessert.
