If you follow me on Instagram, you'd know that I love lemons and berries (raspberries are my favourite!). They're so flavourful and summer-y. I decided to bring both my favourite flavours together and make a simple layered dessert.
On a completely different note, I'm so glad to have been blogging regularly recently. I hope my readers have been enjoying my new recipes. Summer is such a perfect time to experiment with new flavours and ingredients. I have been doing just that and want everyone to do the same.
This dessert is a lot of fun and super simple. It has three interesting layers- raspberry compote, lemon mousse and cake crumbs.
Let's get baking and have fun!
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup lemon curd ( learn to make lemon curd here)
- 1 +1/2 cups whipped cream
1 cup cake crumbs (preferably lemon or vanilla)
- In a saucepan set over medium heat, cook raspberries, water and sugar until the mixture becomes thick. Pour into serving glasses and let it cool.
- Using a spatula, gently fold the lemon curd into the whipped cream. Pipe the lemon mousse on the raspberry compote.
- Top with a generous layer of cake crumbs.
