A simple and easy recipe Raspberry Fool to help use up a glut of raspberries in my garden. The Autumn Raspberries have produced an abundance of fruit this year and are still going.

This recipe is taken from The Dairy Book of Home Cooking, one of my go to cook books. I have excluded the sugar from the original recipe as my raspberries did not require any additional sweetening.

  1. Angela, what a pretty dessert it looks gorgeous.

  2. An interesting recipe,we always end up with a load of raspberries this time of year (we have a load of autumn fruiting plants) this looks like a great use for them.

  3. So simple! Must remember this for next summer!

  4. Oh what a wonderfully simple recipe, I hate to see all that added sugar to puds like this which are already naturally sweet enough. Thanks so much for entering your recipe to September's Four Seasons Food 'Getting Fruity' challenge, and my apologies in only getting around to reading your post now, I'm sooooo behind!


I really do appreciate you leaving me a comment, and I enjoy reading them all.
