Knickerbocker Glory

One of my favourate traditional summer deserts with a bit of a twist

  • Total time: 45 minutes

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • FOR THE ICE CREAM

    500ml full-fat milk
    500ml double cream
    4 vanilla pods
    10 free range egg yolks
    100g golden caster sugar , plus 1 tbsp
    10g poppy seeds
    150ml Kümmel liqueur

    FRUIT

    3 large peaches , ideally white flesh
    150g golden caster sugar , plus 1 tbsp for coulis

Method

  1. Pour the milk and cream into a saucepan. Flatten the vanilla pods with the back of a knife, then slit in half and scrape out the sticky seeds into the pan. Add the slit pods and the 1 tbsp of sugar to the liquid and bring to boil. Then take off heat, cool and remove the pods.
  2. Put 100g sugar and the egg yolks into a large bowl, ideally one with a rounded base for even whisking. Using a large balloon whisk (or hand-held electric machine), beat steadily until the mixture becomes pale and thick.
  3. Return the milk to a boil, then pour a good slurp onto the sugary yolks, beating well. Return the yolk mixture to the milk pan and whisk lightly for 2-3 mins, until the custard just begins to thicken. Place the pan on a medium-low heat and bring it almost to boiling point, whisking continually until it begins to resemble double cream.
  4. For the caramelised peaches, halve and stone the peaches and cut each into 8 wedges. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan, then sprinkle in 75g sugar. Melt to a light caramel, without stirring, although you can shake the pan a little.
  5. For the raspberry coulis, crush most of the raspberries in a bowl with 1 tbsp sugar and lemon juice. I use a stick blender for this, but a masher would do. Set aside when smooth. Halve the passion fruits and scoop out the insides into a bowl. Cut strawberries into spears or wedges.
  6. Place a small, flat round biscuit in the top of each glass, then top with a large firm scoop of ice cream. Drizzle over the passion fruit pulp, then top with the last few raspberries. Stick in a rolled tuile or cigarillo and mint sprig. Serve immediately with longhandled spoons.
