Method

  1. With an electric whisk, whip together the mascarpone and custard in a bowl. Cover and chill until ready to use. Roughly mash most of the raspberries with the elderflower cordial.
  2. Cut up the sponge cake and use to line the bottom of four glasses. Drizzle each one with a little kirsch, and spoon over half of the raspberry mixture. Cover with half of the whipped mascarpone and custard, then repeat the layers with the remaining berries and mascarpone and custard. Decorate with the rest of the raspberries and chill for at least 30 mins before serving.

This is also great if you use Bacardi Razz instead of kirsch. Once, I forgot to leave any raspberries for decoration, so just sprinkled grated chocolate on the top. Now I always do that! This is really easy to make, but always looks impressive, and everyone loves it!

Made this for a summer party. Used cassis as had no kirsch and used a mix of raspberries, strawberries & nectarine for a real summer flavour. Everyone loved it, especially the fact that it had no cream in it therefore felt more "healthy!" So easy too, I will definitely make this again.

Made this last night for a dinner party with some girlfriends. It was REALLY easy and absolutely delicious - and looks very gorgeous in a glass. I substitued kirsch for dessert wine as I didnt have any kirsch. It was heavenly - even if it is very calorie laden (I switched the custard for low fat to try and lessen the diet damage!!)

I left out the elderflower cordial when I made this as my family aren't keen on the floral flavour, but nevertheless it went down a treat - and now I have to make it every year!
