Ingredients

  • 200g/1 1/2 cups blackberries fresh
  • 1 tbsp sugar optional
  • 500ml/2 cups double cream/whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  • Reserve 4-6 blackberries for decorating. In a small bowl crush blackberries with a fork or blend in a food processor. (You may add 1 tbsp of sugar to the blackberries if they are not sweet enough.) 
  • In a large bowl whip double/whipping cream with icing sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form. Do not overbeat as you want softly whipped cream. 
  • Divide whipping cream into equal parts. Take 1/3 of the mashed blackberries and fold gently into 1/2 of the whipped cream with a spatula. 
  • Have 4 serving glasses ready for layering the blackberry fool. Start by dividing the remaining mashed blackberries among 4 glasses. Then top with blackberry cream and finish with vanilla flavoured whipped cream.
    Decorate each Blackberry Fool with one or two blackberries. Serve immediately or keep chilled until serving.
