This is so quick and easy, goes very well served as a dessert after Salmon Coulibiac! I recommend using half 0% Greek Yoghurt and half cream - makes it a lighter and healthier dessert - I served with Almond thins and they accompanied the syllabub perfectly!

Great easy dessert, made in minutes, tasted wonderful. I served it with a shot of limoncello. Will be making this again.

Loved this simple quick dessy!!!Made this today!! Instead of wine I used apple juice and two shots of carribean rum, it's quite rich but rum gave it sexy kick, I sprinkled chocolate shavings on top for finish.

Very sweet and very very rich - delicious but would use the version with Greek yoghurt next time - unable to get Greek Yoghurt, Raspberries or Blueberries here in Mauritius, but managed to get small amount of strawberries - so diced them up and put on top, served with Almond Biscuit.

I served it in Martini Glasses, so only a small amount - all but one of my 12 guests loved it. You could use the small cheap wineglasses if you don't have Martini glasses.

Would do again but with Greek Yoghurt when we return to the UK.

I made this at school for gcse and i loved it. It was so simple and easy to make, because it only took 10 mins, and i put it in the fridge for the rest of the 2 hours. I changed it by adding strawberries and orange zest in the Lemon Syllabub and Orange zest on top. I Loved it Thankyou for putting it on the website. It is now in my binder FOREVER.

I used the mix of half cream & half greek yogurt. thanks for that tip .
Yummy, would definitely make this again......
Soo much tastier than the full fat version.

284 ml is equivalent to 10 fluid oz, which is is also roughly 1 cup in US parlance

Can anyone tell me what weight a 284 tub is? As a Brit living in the US I miss so many recipes from home and find it hard sometimes to get the correct ingredients :(

Thanks and Season's Greetings to All :)

I'm looking forward to making this! I am planning on smashing up some ginger nut biscuits and sprinkling a generous handful over the top at the last minute. Will let you know how I get on!...

Simple to make. Doubled the amount of lemon in it though and served in martini glasses with almond thins and raspberrys and blueberrys. Used 300ml of double cream rather than whipping cream. Would make again.
