Syllabub is a classic English dessert and makes the perfect end to any dinner party menu you might be planning thanks to it’s sweet but light texture. It’s also really easy to make so it’s a great one to prep ahead and have ready in the fridge for a no fuss option for pudding that won’t leave you stuck in the kitchen while all your guests are having fun without you!
With white wine and brandy, this is also a bit of a boozy dessert too. Marinating the ingredients overnight helps to really ramp up the flavour. Served with fresh raspberries to provide a bit of sharpness to go with all the sweet flavours, this dessert feels really special. Serve it up in individual glasses to really impress your guests.
This recipe makes enough syllabub to serve eight people, so it’s a great one to try if you’ve got lots of people coming over.
HOW TO MAKE ELIZABETH DAVID'S SYLLABUB
- Put the first four ingredients into a bowl and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Cover the bowl and leave to marinate overnight.
- Next day, strain the marinade liquid into a bowl and add a good grating of nutmeg. Pour in the cream and beat with a wire whisk until it just holds its shape. Do not overbeat or it will curdle and end up as a buttery mass. Divide the raspberries among 8 glasses and spoon the syllabub on top. Will keep for 24 hours in the fridge.
