This clever pudding will bail many a cook out of a culinary emergency. Made almost entirely from store-cupboard or frozen ingredients and bags of ingenuity, it tastes and looks terrific.


  • 50g muesli

  • 380ml orange liqueur, like Gran Marnier

  • 15ml clear honey

  • 300g mascarpone cheese

  • 2 egg whites

  • 500g packet of frozen mixed berries

  • Fresh mint and icing sugar - to garnish


  • 1.

    In a dry pan, toast the muesli and place them in a clean bowl. Pour over half the Cointreau or Grand Marnier to soak for about 5mins along with the honey and keep aside.

  • 2.

    In a separate bowl, whisk the mascarpone or yoghurt, then fold in the soaked oats.

  • 3.

    In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until light and fluffy. Fold the whites into the cheese and muesli mix

  • 4.

    Chill 4 glasses, then place the frozen fruits into the base of a glass and drizzle over a little orange liqueur. (What you are doing is dividing the second half of the liqueur into 8 equal parts to make 2 layers in each of the 4 glasses). Scoop over a dollop of cheese/yoghurt muesli mix and repeat the process a second time, finishing with a dollop of cream mix. Dust lightly with icing sugar and a sprig of mint.
