About this recipe: I strongly recommend using fresh brambles in this recipe for best flavour. Raspberries, strawberries or a combination of all three may be used, but they should all be fresh.


Serves: 8 

  • 1L whipping cream
  • 125g icing sugar, divided
  • 125ml soured cream, at room temperature
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 punnets fresh blackberries
  • 8 strips of lemon zest, for garnish
  • 8 sprigs fresh mint

Prep:15min  ›  Extra time:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Pour the cream into a large bowl with 1/2 of the icing sugar and almond extract. Whip until stiff. Fold in soured cream. Refrigerate.
  2. In a separate bowl, toss blackberries with the remaining icing sugar. Let stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes.
  3. In 8 glasses, layer whipped cream and blackberries, beginning and ending with whipped cream. Garnish each fool with a strip of lemon zest, a few blackberries and a sprig of mint.
