Speaking of food, here is the most indulgent dessert which can be eaten either on its own, or with fruit, pavlova, trifle ... almost anything else. It can be made either as a really sweet dish (with marshmallows) or with a more tart flavour. It's always a hit at dinners and parties, and incredibly simple to make, but I always make sure I only ever share the recipe after it has been enjoyed, as the raw ingredients often shock people! Here is the recipe for boysenberry ambrosia.

Boysenberry ambrosia

  • 500 ml cream
  • 1 punnet (150 ml) of boysenberry/fruit of the forest/blackberry yoghurt
  • 410g can of boysenberries
  1. Whip cream until very thick (almost overbeaten).
  2. Fold in yoghurt.
  3. Drain boysenberries well, leaving small amount of juice aside. Fold boysenberries into cream and yoghurt mixture.
  4. Add small amounts of juice to colour, if required.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours to set before serving.
