Blackberry Fool

As you can see from the picture, berries and cream are a jumble, hard to get a clear shot of a fool.. For all of you non bakers, this is the dessert you can be known for.  The combination of seedless jams and fresh fruits are endless.  I understand the original recipe used Gooseberries, which if you have never tried,  resemble the taste and texture of Kiwi.  Putting this on top of a warm waffle would make the best weekend breakfast ever. If you fold crushed meringue  in, you would have Eton Mess – named after the exclusive school in England, brought to the attention of the world with England’s  biggest wedding this past year.

1 Cup  Whipping Cream

2 Tbs  Powdered Sugar

1 tsp    Vanilla

4 Tbs  Seedless Red Raspberry Jam

1 Pint  Fresh Blackberries

  • In a bowl, whip cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until the cream holds stiff peaks
  • Fold the berries into the jam until they are coated
  • Gently fold the berries into the whipped cream
  • Serve by itself or on top of a warm waffle
