AT A GLANCE
Syllabub is a traditional English dessert that's whipped up in minutes. It has a lovely light, billowy texture, here offset by the tang of raspberries and buttery crumble of shortbread.
|01||Stir sugar, lemon juice and wine in a saucepan over low heat just until sugar dissolves (1-2 minutes). Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until cool (about 15 minutes).|
|02||Whisk cream and vanilla seeds in an electric mixer just until soft peaks form. Gently fold in lemon juice mixture and rind (lemon juice will cause the cream to stiffen – take care not to overwork). Set aside.|
|03||Combine raspberries, orange juice and icing sugar in a bowl and crush lightly with a fork.|
|04||Crumble a third of the shortbread into the base of a 2-litre bowl. Top with a third of the raspberry mixture, then a third of the syllabub, repeat for two more layers with the remaining shortbread, raspberries and syllabub, and top with extra raspberries and serve.|
