Theme 3: Love
Cookbook : Little Kitchen by Sabrina Parrini
Recipe : Raspberry Delight
Love. This theme can be interpreted in many ways. The way I interpret this week's theme is Deanna. Yes, I love her but the reason I chose her for this theme is that she loves to cook and bake. She recently turned down an invitation to attend a previous blogger lunch, simply because there will be no cooking involved, unlike the last one she attended. You have seen many posts on her and her kitchen creations and I am certain you will see many more in the future.
Having children in the kitchen can be a bit messy but they always have fun. So if you don't worry about what needs to be cleaned up afterwards, children can get be quite helpful
Since this recipe came from a children's book, it's very easy and really only requires a few ingredients.
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
2 punnets raspberries (we used frozen mixed berries)
2 tsp caster sugar
1. Put the cream and vanilla bean paste into the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat till soft peaks form
2. Tip half of the berries into a small bowl and mash them with the sugar using a fork until it forms a runny sauce
3. Arrange a layer of cream in a glass then spoon a layer of the berry sauce then the whole berries. Repeat till you have about 2-3 layers of each or until you reach the top.
We also add crushed up biscuits (scotch finger) to the top and Hubby and I drizzled some butterscotch sauce on it as well.
Deanna layered her own glass (with a little help from me) and I did the other. She also made another two smaller ones but they didn't photographed well (read : messy) but all 4 glasses were very delicious no matter what they looked like.
