Strawberry Fool with Meringue Topper

Strawberry Fool

I don't participate often in Sunday Fundays, but this week we're doing fruity desserts.  


 

It's been years since I've made this, well before my blogging days, and while it's usually made with fresh strawberries, I decided to play with some frozen ones.  

They were just hanging out in the freezer, and kept teasing me so I pulled them out and made this up.

In some respects it's kinda like a pavlova, but not really, except for the meringue topper. 

And it's so dead simple, just a few ingredients and VOILA!!! you have a dessert that is not only company ready, but looks spectacular, served in pretty dishes.  

What I love about this is that you don't really need to add a lot of sugar, just enough to 'macerate' the berries.  Which means, adding sugar to the fresh berries which encourages them to give up their juice.

I actually did that before freezing them.  

I like making it with custard, rather than just whipping cream.   Which is actually more British.  They do love their custard over there.  

The custard, was made according to the directions on the Bird's Custard Powder box, but I added the two egg yolks from when I made the meringue.   Not the best idea I've ever had. It was kinda funky, but it still tasted just fine. 

I would love to give a definitive recipe here, but honestly, there isn't really one.

This is a beautiful layered dessert which can look so fancy and yet is dead easy to put together and serve.

I probably shouldn't admit it, but I ate this for lunch.

Hey, it had cream and fruit and eggs, a win win for me. 

Strawberry Fool

 No recipe, but here's a how to...

In a pretty stemmed glass, place a couple of tablespoons of fruit, in this case it was sliced strawberries which had a little sugar sprinkled on top, and left to macerate a little while.  

I then dolloped some custard on top of the fruit, added a little freshly whipped cream,  some more fruit, custard and finished it off with some whipped cream and topped it with a meringue kiss.

Strawberry Fool

Yield: 4 Servings
Author: altairgate -
Prep time: 15 MinTotal time: 15 Min
This is a light dessert, perfect to make using spring time berries

Ingredients

Custard
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons Bird's Custard Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
Strawberry layer
  • 2 cups slices strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
Whipped Cream
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1-2 teaspoons sugar

Instructions

Custard
  1. Mix 2 tablespoons of the cold milk into the custard powder and sugar until smooth.  Whisk into the milk and heat until boiling, stirring constantly on stove top, or cook in the microwave, whisking after each minute, until thick and cooked through. Place a sheet of plastic wrap on top, to keep a 'skin' from forming and cool.
Strawberries
  1. Wash and slice the strawberries, and sprinkle with sugar, stirring it around once or twice.  This is called macerating the strawberries and it brings out the juice.
Whip Cream together until it forms soft peaks.  Set aside for assembly.
 
Assembly
  1. Place approximately 1/4 cup of strawberries in the bottom of a pretty footed glass, then add a little custard, then the whipping cream, building it up by layers.  Finish off with a crisp meringue cookie if desired
