Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

If you like sweet and savoury flavours in the same dish, make this! It’s a dessert and cheese course all in one and it can be prepared in advance.


400g blackberries
50ml Crème de Cassis
4-5 tablespoons caster or demerara sugar
1 log of goat’s cheese


1. Place the fruit, Crème de Cassis and sugar in an ovenproof dish and bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 20 minutes or until the fruit is soft but still holding its shape. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

2. To serve, spoon the blackberries into pretty dishes. Spoon over the fruit syrup in the dish. Cut or tear the goat’s cheese into small pieces and dot over the fruit.

Sprinkle over mint or basil leaves or dust the fruit with icing sugar before you add the cheese.

Use any soft cheese instead of the goat’s cheese.

If they cassis syrup is too loose when the blackberries have finished cooking pour the liquid into a saucepan, turn the heat to high and cook it for a few minutes until thick and syrupy.
