    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…

  • 25g caster sugar
  • 140g mini marshmallow
  • 200ml double cream

Method

  1. Put all but 2 strawberries into a pan along with 100ml water and the sugar. Over a medium heat, cook strawberries until soft enough to mash, about 3 mins. Take off the heat and squash the berries, using a fork, until pulpy. Add the marshmallows, then stir them into the hot strawberries until they dissolve. Leave to cool.

  2. Whip the cream until it holds its shape. Fold the cream into the cooled strawberry mix, then spoon into one bowl or separate pots and chill for about 2 hrs, or until set. Cut the reserved strawberries in half and use to decorate.

Having bought some really good strawberries I thought that I would give this recipe a go. It was so easy, I did reduce the sugar content a little as the fruit was really sweet anyway. I found that the marshmallows took quite a while to dissolve and had to pop the pan back onto the heat briefly. It also took ages to cool down, but I will use a wider pan next time. Unfortunately I added the fruit mix to the cream instead of the other way round so it was a bit lumpy ! Set really well. Will definitely do this one again.

I am due to make this for a dinner party on Saturday but wanted a trial run first. A lot of people have commented and said that they pulped the strawberry's. Please can I ask when would you do this? before or after they are cooked? Thanks

Love this recipe. A crowd pleaser and easy to do. I put crushed hobnobs in the base and also sprinkled on top with strawberry and mint decoration.

Great mousse. I doubled up the recipe for a party. It set beautifully within 2 hours. Everyone mentioned it. It was light airy. I'm making it again this week for a larger amount of people.

Great recipe!! But strawberries aren't actually berries, thought I should let you know since you referred to them as berries once.

I'd say you either didn't whip the cream enough or you didn't let them set for long enough. Perhaps maybe added too much water?

These were lovely and so easy to make. I didn't think they were going to set but they did. Perfect with shortbread crumbled on top.
