A few punnets of fresh berries and a spot of cream are all you need to make this stonking summer dessert. It takes less than five minutes to make and looks fantastic.


  • 1 egg, separated

  • 1½ tbsp of caster sugar

  • 100g of mascarpone

  • 50g of whipped cream

  • 150g of digestive biscuits

  • 100g of strawberries, sliced

  • 50g of raspberries whole

  • 50g of fresh sliced peaches

  • 50g blackberries, whole

  • 150ml Strega liqueur (you can use Marsala or sherry too)


  • 1.

    For the topping, beat the egg yolk and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale.

  • 2.

    Add the mascarpone and whisk until combined then fold in the cream.

  • 3.

    Next beat the egg white until firm and fold quickly in with the cream mixture.

  • 4.

    Cover the bowl with cling film and let the mixture relax in the fridge for a couple of minutes.

  • 5.

    Meantime in a bowl, crush the digestive biscuits and wet them with Strega liqueur until they’re easy to mould. Place 3 tbsp of the biscuit mixture on the bottom of the glass dessert cup.

  • 6.

    Then add the fresh fruit until the cup is nearly full and finish the dessert off, by topping the cup with the cream mixture and placing a whole strawberry on the top. Serve immediately.
