4 times fresh cream made everything better

Life it short. Treat yourself.




Because, without freshly whipped fresh cream, it would just be a big meringue topped with fruit, wouldn’t it? To make your own, heat your oven to 120°C, then line a baking tray with grease-proof paper. Whip 8 large egg whites in a big bowl with an electric beater on low speed until foamy. Increase the speed and, when stiff peaks form, beat in 440 g caster sugar little by little until the mixture is stiff and glossy. Spread the mixture on the baking tray and bake in the centre of the oven for 1 hour. Turn off the oven, but leave the meringue inside to dry out for a few more hours. When cool, top liberally with whipped fresh cream and fruit.

Malva pudding


If you’re going to go ahead and make malva pudding, don’t bother with half measures and not serving it with a healthy glug of fresh cream. Don’t have a reliable family recipe? No sweat. Prepare one 270 g box of Woolies’ malva pudding mix according to packet instructions, crumbling in 25 g marzipan for an added almondy treat. Bake until cooked through. While the pud is baking, make the accompanying sauce to pour over when it comes out of the oven. Once the sauce is soaked in, serve with ice cold fresh cream.

Chocolate mousse


You need something to cut through the sweetness, right? For the dreamiest chocolate mousse, beat 1 cup cream until stiff peaks form, then chill. Next, combine 4 free-range egg yolks, ¼ cup espresso and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water, then whisk continuously for about 3 minutes until the mixture has doubled. Take the egg mixture off the heat, then add 120 g melted Lindt dark chocolate, and stir until combined. Beat 2 free-range egg whites with 1 tablespoon sugar until stiff peaks form, then fold into the chilled cream. Lastly, fold the cream and egg-white mixture into the chocolate mixture, then chill until set. Serve with extra whipped cream, of course.
