Lovely dessert, simple but effective. Looks very nice served in a small wine glass and is a light, refreshing end to a meal. Lovely with the shortbread.

I also had the problem that the lemon curd made blobs rather than swirls, but I don't think it mattered because it was still delicious. Great for dinner parties, as it's so quick but gives great results.

Made these my parents when they came for dinner and went down a treat. My raspberries were a bit tarty but the yogurt and lemon went nicely with them.

Delicious. I also used plain yogurt, but instead of raspberries used sliced strawberries and it was just as nice.

This is a lovely dessert, though it always works really well with Marmalade, particularly at breakfast dolloped on a fruit salad!

Delicious and ridiculously easy. I served in babycham glasses and it looked very good. I did struggle to get the ripple effect that you see in the photo accompanying the recipe - might be that the curd I used was pretty thick. In future I would water it down very slightly to make it easier to swirl through.

Yummy! Combined this with another GF recipe and crumbled some amaretti biscuits into the glass first before drizzling them with some limoncello and continuing as above. Lovely quick, light dessert that looks terribly impressive despite only taking minutes to put together.

excellent dessert. I used strawberries instead of raspberries and I didnt add any sugar to them. I also added some roasted hazelnuts on top just before serving. delicious

Brilliant simple dessert. I sprinkled the sponges with a little raspberry liqueur and skipped the icing sugar for a sharper taste.

Flavours went really well together and the shortbread with it is an excellent touch, may try adding a little dissolved gelitine with the yoghourt next time to set it a little though as its a but too runny for my taste.

Fab little puds. I used Total 0% fat greek yogurt and put a few crushed digestives in the base before the fruit. I served them in martini glasses and they really looked the business. I have made them with both blackberries and raspberries but the raspberry and lemeon is a combination made in heaven. The were so quick too!

Absolutely delicious!

I used regular yogurt so unfortunately I didn't get the ripple effect. I also didn't feel the need for the shortbread.
