I Did a Delicious Thing With Some Raspberries and Chambord and You Should Too
We went to the farmer's market on Sunday and the season's very first organic raspberries were there! Coincidentally, I had made a flourless chocolate cake to take to a bbq that evening and was planning to just make plain old, boring whipped cream to serve with it but the berries changed everything. Suddenly I was whipping out the Chambord and making Chambord Whipped Cream and nice, boozy berries. This is not an earth shattering idea but it is one I wanted to share with you because it was so delicious and not everything that is delicious has to also be earth shattering, right?
1 flourless chocolate cake
500ml whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tbls chambord
put the cream, the sugar and the chambord in your stand mixer and mix on high for three minutes.
1 pint raspberries
2 tbls chambord
3 tbls sugar
juice of half of a lemon
mix all the ingredients together and leave to macerate for at least a couple of hours.
Cut a piece of cake and serve with a dollop of the chambord whipped cream and a spoonful of the juicy chambord raspberries.
