  • 200ml double cream
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp lime juice (about 3 limes), plus zest 1 lime
  • few raspberries



    A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many…


  1. Put the cream and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat until just boiling, then boil vigorously for 2½ mins, while stirring constantly. Turn off the heat, stir in the lime juice and most of the zest and divide between 2 small pots or glasses. Chill for at least 2 hrs (or overnight if you’re making ahead), until set.

  2. To serve top each posset with a few raspberries and the remaining zest.

Very easy and very tasty. I used lime and lemon which worked well. They are quite sweet so you don't need much per person. I served them in espresso cups with a little biscuit on the side. Went down very well with my guests.

This is virtually identical to a Gary Rhodes recipe which has become one of my staple desserts... mainly because the ingredients are so easy to remember that I can pick them up in the supermarket when I realise I need to make a pudding but haven't looked up any recipes in advance! Nice variations include: doing it with half lemon and lime juice; top it with blueberries instead of raspberries and (my own personal favourite), slice some bananas in the bottom of the glass before topping with this (their blandness complements the rich flavour).

I really liked this recipe although I think i could do with a bit more lime juice. I also made a biscuit base with orange segment on top as a kinda mock trifle. It was perfect. Love this recipe will most definatley make this again
