I got all excited about this dish - but following the recipe didnt work as SINGLE cream does not thicken enough. Will try again with DOUBLE cream :-) - 20 Sep 2011


This dessert was soo good! I read the other comment on here about using double cream and I did; and it seemed to do the trick! All the different textures and flavours really compliment each other. Next time though I will add just a touch more vanilla extract - 08 Feb 2012


Made my compote and toffee sauce, so it was moist. Also useddouble cream instead of the single and whipped it witha tiny bit of icing sugar and vanilla seeds. Loved it! - 12 Oct 2015
