Seriously Creamy Cassis creams

An indulgent summer desert in which the tang of blackcurrants complements a creamy base with the addition of Supercassis for an extra kick.

What makes it the ultimate summer Seriously From Waitrose dessert?

The blackcurrants give this a truly summery taste, they are a neglected fruit and too often usurped by the much blander blueberry. The mascarpone and cream provide a rich foil for the currants and enable you to make a long lasting whipped desert in minutes.

  • 150g carton Essential Waitrose blackcurrants
    1 tablespoon golden caster sugar
    250g Galbani Italian mascarpone
    170 ml double cream
    2/3 tablespoons Supercassis

Method

Combine the mascarpone and Supercassis in a bowl using a fork. Reserve some currants for decoration. Fold the whipped cream and currants into the mascarpone. Divide between 6 small dishes.
