This recipe doesn't work well- the filling is just too wet. The baskets need a light, mousse like filling that doesn't drizzle out when the basket is bitten into. Flavours are all great, it just doesn't work as a dessert.

Great dessert, looked impressive and had a wonderful flavour (zesty). This has been a big hit

Fantastic, everybody loved them. Served them twice over Christmas and think they would also be a great desert in the summer. Definitely would do again and could vary with other fruits.

I am baffled as to why this recipe is classed as suitable for diabetics. The ready made brandy baskets I checked out by Askeys sold at tesco, had 54.6g of sugar per 100g. Also, the lemon curd, again I looked at Tesco, this time their own brand and this has 53.3g sugar per 100g. As a new diabetic I am confused by this.Can someone advise me please?

Hi there, thanks for your question.

All of our recipes are analysed by a nutritionist based on ingredients that are used by our cookery team when testing the dish. In this instance, because you are using ready-made ingredients certainly different brands of brandy baskets and lemon curd will contain varying levels of sugar. We're sorry if you found this confusing, these recipes were selected by Diabetes UK but to avoid any misinterpretation in future we'll take this recipe out of the collection. 

Many thanks,

The Good Food team
