this was delicious. it's a perfect summer dessert, light, tasty and easy to prepare. i didn't use the big processor, i just mixed everything with a fork for easy clean-up. i used the juice of 1 1/2 lemons and half an orange and decorated with raspberries and blueberries on top, just lovely.

Very good!! My custard took a bit longer to cook than the 12 minutes but other than that it was great. The slices could be dressed up for fancier occasions with some raspberry sauce drizzled over it or on the plate. It will be made again in this house. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice dessert. My custard took longer to cook than stated as well, but still good. I used blueberries instead of raspberries, but everything else was as posted. Thanks for sharing
