    Norahs Girl's Note:

    Boodle's Club in London's St. James's Street, was founded in 1764 and this luscious fool has been a speciality on the menu for many years. It is a little like a trifle, with a sponge cake base which sops up the creamy, fruit-flavoured mixture on top.

      This was absolute perfection and couldn't have been easier to make. Light, airy and so fresh tasting. It also looked spectacular. This is the dessert I'll be making all summer long for guests.

      So good to find this recipe again as my mother used to make this for me when I was a child. Lovely flavours and a real show stopper. Thanks Julie.
