This is a 3-ingredient dessert (pudding!) my British father’s family served after every summer dinner we spent together: fresh berries + sugar + cream.

Use any fresh summer berries you can get your hands on, though strawberries and raspberries are particularly good.

The recipe below is written for 1 serving. Scale up as needed.


  • 2 tablespoons of cream
  • a handful of fresh berries: raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries — any fresh, local berries you can get your hands on; a mix of berries is nice, too
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or to taste


  1. Place cream in a small bowl.
  2. Wash berries if you haven’t already. Core strawberries and halve or quarter them if large. Drop a handful of berries on top of the cream.
  3. Sprinkle with sugar, using more or less to taste.
