The (drowned) fool

In my search for a perfect dessert, I can add another one on my list. The fool. Strawberry fool to be exact. Now, for this dessert you don't have mix to exact measurements, it depends on your own taste.

250 ml (1 cup) ready made custard or vanilla yoghurt (which isn't as sweet)
125 ml (1/2 cup) whipping cream, sugar to taste
250 gr (2 cups) strawberries, sugar to taste
100 gr (1/2 cup) crumbly biscuits or 100 gr cubed madeira cake

1. Remove stalks and slice the strawberries, pour in the sugar and leave for about half an hour.
2. Whip the cream with the sugar until not quite stiff.
3. Mix cream with the custard/yoghurt.
4. Take serving bowl and pour in the creamy custard. Next take the strawberries and pour them over. Top with the crumbled biscuits.

Alternatively (to get a drowned fool): take the cubed madeira cake and put on the bottom of the serving bowl. Pour the creamy custard over and top with the strawberries.


  1. Oh yeah, mouth is watering ;-)

  2. Sounds very good. Thank you for sharing it with me.

  3. sounds a lot like shortcake! but upside down.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
