I have to laugh at myself sometimes as to where and when I find recipes to try. It was probably the hottest night of the year recently and I couldn’t sleep, so I was scrolling through the internet about 2am and found this delicious looking recipe and decided it would be a perfect ‘cake’ to have in the freezer for when my family come over to the Isle of Wight for a visit this summer.
I blitz frozen fruit and yoghurt all the time for an ice-cream type of dessert but this ‘cake’ would be ideal to have ready prepared. I made my first ‘cake’ the very next morning and my grandchildren called in at an appropriate time to try it out. Empty bowls – success!
250g blackberries or blueberries
16 tablespoons natural live yoghurt
Line a loaf tin with clingfilm.
Blitz one of the fruits with 4 tablespoons of yoghurt and pour into tin. Pop in freezer until it starts to freeze.
Rinse the blender out and blitz another fruit with yoghurt and repeat, freezing between layers.
Freeze until solid.
Leave the frozen ‘cake’ in the fridge for about an hour before needed to allow it to slightly soften; serve in slices with extra fruit.
Thank you for the recipe Jamie Oliver
