A deliciously simple Lemon and Raspberry Dessert

Thursday 27 August 2015

We've had a really busy day here today running about here and there.   We had to go all the way up to Manchester to have the Toddster's iPad fixed and then back again, amongst all of our other duties and so today for eats . . .  easy is the order of the day.

Today, thankfully, we had leftover roast chicken and veg from the other night. All I had to do was heat it up.

I wanted a quick and easy pud to serve for afters today and this one I found in the August 2011 issue of BBC Good Food magazine fit the bill perfectly.

It used things I just happened to have on hand, and it was very quick to throw together. It was also very easy to cut down so that I had only one serving, just large enough for the Toddster. (ok, I did have a taste. I freely admit it!! And I enjoyed every taste bud tingling, lucious morsel of taste that I had! Scrumptious!)

It sounded fabulous . . . whipped cream, lemon curd, raspberries and crushed meringues. What could be any tastier or easier than simply folding them together?

It was extremely . . . tasty! I think I've found a new dinner party dessert!

Printable Recipe

Easy peasy, lemon squeasy!

300ml pot of double cream (1 1/4 cup)
140g punnet of fresh raspberries (approximately 1 1/4 cups)
4 TBS Lemon Curd
4 large meringue nests, roughly broken

Whip the cream until stiff. Gently fold in about 3/4 of the raspberries, the lemon curd and the broken meringues, making sure that some of the raspberries break up, leaving a ripple effect and that some of them remain whole, and so that you get some of the curd rippled through without it being completely mixed in. Divide between 4 bowls and then scatter the remaining raspberries over top. Delicious!


  1. This was dessert tonight. Could it get any easier? What a fabulous recipe to have on hand for those days you want a quick sweet treat or have unexpected guests - you can throw this together really quickly from things you have at home and make a tasty and impressive dessert. Really yummy.
