Strawberry Fool

Easy Desserts: Strawberry Fool

Fool is the right word! This dessert is stupidly easy to make, using fresh strawberries to give it a summery feel. It’s a reinvention of the tennis watching classic strawberries and cream combo.

Lemon Meringue S’mores

Easy Desserts: lemon meringue pie summer s'mores

Another “Britified” import, we’ve taken the campfire classic for children all across America and adapted it to the British palette by making homemade shortbread and a decadent sweet lemon curd sauce to replace graham crackers (no huge loss, they’re just an American version of digestive biscuits) and chocolate.

Lemon and Raspberry Posset 

Easy summer desserts: lemon and raspbery posset with rosemary shortbread

Probably the easiest of the desserts in this list to make, a lemon posset is a British classic that you can whip up with only three ingredients: lemons, cream and sugar. If it’s too easy and you need a little extra challenge, we’ve included a recipe to make homemade rosemary shortbread to go along with your possets.

Barbecue Jerk Pineapple With Chocolate Rum Sauce

Simple Dessert: Barbecue Jerk Pineapple with Chocolate Rum Sauce

And now for something completely different… this jerk pineapple dish brings an adventurous mix of spice and combines it with a boozy rum chocolate sauce and the sweetness of fresh pineapple. It’s effortless to make and ready in minutes, but exciting enough to get people tasting and talking.


Rosewater & Earl Grey Kulfi

Simple Dessert: Rosewater & Earl Grey Kulfi

We’ve given kulfi, the delicious ice-cream like (but better) dessert, an English garden feel by using earl grey and rosewater to give it an unforgettable, fresh flavour.
