Berry salad with brandy snap cups

For the snap:

110g sugar
110g butter
110g golden syrup
110g flour, sifted juice of 1 lemon pinch of ground ginger

For the berry salad:
200g raspberries
200g blueberries
400g strawberries
50g sugar juice of 1 lemon
Fresh mint leaves
1 tub of Kelly’s of Cornwall Clotted Cream and Strawberry Ice Cream


Hull and quarter the strawberries and place in a serving bowl with the other fruits. Make a quick syrup by melting the sugar and lemon juice with 2 to 3 tbsp of water. Once the sugar is melted, set aside and leave to cool. Once cool, pour over the fruits and leave to rest for at least an hour. Now make the brandy snap cups.

Preheat oven to 190ºC. Line a large baking sheet with greaseproof paper.

Melt the sugar, butter and syrup together. Remove from the heat and add the flour.

Add the ginger and the lemon juice. Place a tsp of the mixture onto the baking sheet, leaving room for the mixture to spread. You may need to make two batches. Bake for around 5 or 6 minutes or until they are golden brown. Remove from the oven and when cool enough to handle, scoop each biscuit up with a knife and lightly press inside a small cup to shape, remove and place on a cooling rack, repeat for each brandy snap cup.

To serve, place a brandy snap cup on a plate, fill with fruit, add a scoop of Kelly’s of Cornwall Clotted Cream and Strawberry Ice Cream and spoon over a little juice. Decorate with fresh mint leaves.
