    Apple, blackberry & cassis fool

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes + cooling
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes + cooling

    Serves: 6


    600g bramley apples
    2 tbsp cassis, plus more for serving
    200g blackberries, plus more for decorating
    150ml double cream
    125g No.1 Madagascan Vanilla Custard
    40g icing sugar, plus extra to taste
    Shortbread, to serve


    1. Peel the apples, then slice them finely, discarding the cores. Put them into a saucepan with the cassis. Cook, covered, on a very low heat for 4-5 minutes until the apples have collapsed into a fluffy mass. You need
    to stir them a couple of times as they cook. Leave to cool.

    2. Stir the blackberries into the apples, squashing the berries with the back of a spoon, so that their juices run. Whip the cream until it holds its shape well and stir that into the fruit with the custard and sugar. Taste to see whether you are happy with the amount of cassis and the level of sweetness and adjust.

    3. Spoon the fool into six small glasses and put in the fridge for a few hours. I don’t like it ‘set’ but I do like it chilled and it’s good for it to firm up a little. Add a few blackberries to the top of each glass and a little drizzle of cassis. Serve with shortbread on the side.
