Strawberry Sundae

This was a last minute thing I made before Iftar. I googled sundae recipes and they all contained double cream, which is whipped.

I’m too lazy to take the machine out to whip the cream and all the cleaning involved. I just discovered mascarpone cheese which is my easy alternative and tastes really nice.

Ingredients

  • 1 Mascarpone cheese tub – you can find this is in Asda in the cheese aisle , where the tube cheeses are.
  • 1 small extra thick cream tub
  • I used 1 punnet of strawberries as it was the strawberry season, feel a bit adventurous? Use any fruit you find in the kitchen.
  • 2tsp Caster Sugar

To decorate you can use anything, you could crush some flake chocolate on the top. I found some biscuit curls from Marks and Spencer in the kitchen, so used that as the decoration.

Method;

In a mini chopper or blender, add extra thick cream as much as you need, 3 tbsp cheese, 2 tsp caster sugar and strawberries. Don’t add too many strawberries as you want to be able to taste the cream too.

This is an alternative for whipped cream. 😀

Rememeber add less cheese than the cream because sundaes is really about the cream taste not cheese!

Blend all the above till the strawberries are finely chopped and blended into the mixture.  Don’t blend too much otherwise the mixture will become watery.
Get glasses and add a bit of the mixture into the glasses. Remember we will be layering this into the glasses you use.

Cut the remaining strawberries into 4 pieces each. Add some on top of the mixture and add some cream again. If you want another layer of strawberries, you can add them again. I opted for vanilla ice cream.

To finish this off I added a small spoon of thick cream on top and stuck a curl into it.

You can drizzle it with chocolate sauce if you have some at home.

Enjoy
