Frothy, fluffy fools are one of the simplest but best ways to celebrate the tart, tangy fruits of British summertime. Rhubarb, gooseberry, and red berries all marry wonderfully with thick whipped cream or custard and a sprinkling of sugar. Here are three fantastically fuss-free fool recipes to get you inspired.
Classic flavours, but not as you know them. This favourite flavour combination has been transformed into fool form and we’d be fooling you if we said we weren’t just a little bit excited about it.
There’s no tomfoolery with this recipe from Perfect Host. It’s a riff on the classic gooseberry fool with the addition of sweet and summery elderflower. It’s the perfect recipe to celebrate the fruits of high summer.
A less traditional British take on the dessert, this fool sings with the flavours of sweet mango, sharp passion fruit and creamy Greek yoghurt. Topped off with salty pistachio nuts, it’s quite irresistible.
