Raspberries and Cream – perfectly ripe, fresh raspberries topped with sweetened whipped cream and a sprinkling of chopped chocolate.

Sometimes the best recipes aren’t complicated at all. Sometimes it’s just about what’s fresh and perfectly ripe.

Now, I know that raspberries don’t really come into season until about mid-summer but our local Publix store has had some of the best ones lately! I don’t know where they’re coming from. I just hope they keep on coming. These berries were so juicy, so ripe, tart, and tender! All they really needed was a little cream and a sprinkling of chocolate to become a perfect dessert.

How to Make Raspberries and Cream

Sprinkling berries with sugar.

Sprinkle the raspberries with 1 teaspoon of the sugar and the orange liqueur, if using. Toss very gently. Let them stand for an hour or so at room temperature. The sugar will dissolve and the berries will be wonderfully sweet and infused with the liqueur. Of course, the liqueur is totally optional and it’s just as good without.

Chopping chocolate on a board.

Chop the chocolate. I used a bit of semi-sweet because that’s what I happened to have. This would be really delicious with a good dark chocolate, too.

Whipping cream with a whisk.

Now whip the cream with the vanilla extract and remaining sugar until soft peaks form. You can get out an electric mixer for this if you want but for this tiny amount of cream, I just use a regular old whisk. Takes about the same amount of time and keeps the kitchen nicely calm and serene.

Layering raspberries, whipped cream, and chocolate in glasses.

To serve, layer the raspberries, cream, and chocolate in individual serving bowls or glasses. I used a couple of highball glasses and it worked out perfectly.

  1. Sometimes the simplest things are the best :) There’s nothing better than fresh berries and cream. Brings me right back to my childhood with my great grandmom. Thanks Lana!
