This dessert is a bit of a cheat, but let's face it who really cares in the end as long as it tastes good!
I was stuck for an idea for a pudding after our Thursday meal night, and nipped to the supermarket to find something to make! I could have bought a fully ready made dessert but then you loose the fun of making it and the glory when everyone devours it, so I bought the flan base and topped it with fruit and whipped cream. I also had a toffee/butterscotch sauce to drizzle on top which made it really yummy.
1 large flan case
1 tablespoon of lemon curd (or another jam/jelly of your choice)
1 tablespoon of icing sugar
300 ml double cream
1 punnet of raspberries
1/2 punnet of strawberries
a few sprigs of mint
78g dark brown sugar
100ml double cream
If you want a sauce- which I highly recommend, then this goes perfectly!
Melt the butter and sugar in a large pan. Stir gently and once all is melted, pour in the double cream. Mix thoroughly and pour into desired jug. I left the jug on the table so everyone could help themselves, and it was very popular!
It's also really good on ice cream or on its own on a spoon if you have no will power like myself....
