A fool is often considered simple and this recipe is just that! Actually, a fool in this context is this old English dessert which we find perfect to start breakfasts.
2 cups mashed fruit
1 cup whipping cream
3 tbsp sugar
Select your soft fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or stewed rhubarb. Fruit can be fresh but the fool texture is improved if you use frozen fruit (therefore you can serve this year-round). Defrost it until it is firm but not icy.
Whip the whipping cream with the sugar until it is very stiff and then fold the fruit into the cream. Serves 6-8.
