Cheat's Raspberry Crème Brûlée

Crème Brûlées comes in all kinds of guises these days, most of which I don't really care for much. Having said that, there's always one exception that disproves the rule and this is it - grown up, sophisticated and truly divine!


  • 200g ready-made custard
  • 125g mascarpone cheese
  • 125g créme fraîche
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 200g fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar, for glazing

  • Put the custard, mascarpone, crème fraiche and sugar together into a large bowl and whisk together, gently, until the mixture thickens.
  • Divide the raspberries evenly into the small ramekins and then carefully spoon the creamy mixture onto the raspberries. Tap the dish to flatten and chill well for about two hours.
  • To finish, carefully sprinkle a couple of teaspoonfuls of caster sugar over each one and place briefly under a hot grill to caramelise: if you have a cook’s blow torch, simply glaze the tops.
  • Serve as quickly as possible.
