This easy to prepare desert dish requires no cooking. Just chill prior to serving.
Take approximately two large handfuls of summer fruits (choose a mix of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants as your fancy takes you) and sprinkle with two tablespoons of caster sugar, the juice and zest of a small un-waxed lemon and a dash of Scotch Whisky.
In a separate bowl stir half a tablespoon of caster sugar together with a small tub (150g) of mascarpone and 2 or three drops of vanilla extract.
Serve on a small plate with a ring of the mascarpone mix encircling the fruits.
A few lightly toasted oat flakes can be sprinkled on top prior to serving for a little extra crunch.
