Products Used In This Recipe:

  • Berry Cream Sponge

    1. Transfer frozen raspberries and blueberries to a tray to partially defrost.
    2. Meanwhile, using a pastry/biscuit cutter (or use a glass as a guide), cut 8 x 6.5cm rounds from the sponge. Whip cream and icing sugar together in a bowl until soft peaks form. Spoon cream mixture onto sponge rounds. Arrange raspberries and blueberries on top. Place on a serving platter or individual plates, drizzle with raspberry coulis (see below) and serve.

    Raspberry Coulis

    1. Place frozen raspberries and sugar into a large non-stick frying pan.  Stir to combine.  Heat, stirring often, over medium heat until bubbling.  Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until berries are very tender.  Using a wooden spoon, crush raspberries until pureed.  Remove from heat and set aside to cool.  Pass raspberry mixture through a sieve to strain. Discard seeds.

    Tip:

    • The raspberry sauce can be made up to 5 days ahead and stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
