Knickerbocker Glory on the Fourth

It all began with Rhonda's weekly links of interest. This Mary Berry thing caught my eye. I never heard of this lady, obviously well known in Britain. It's a very delightful program, tempting recipes and this cute old lady with a twinkle in her bright eyes. I watched a few videos. And then saw this one where she goes to the seaside to have what she called a "Knickerbocker Glory" - an ice cream sundae with fruit and a raspberry sauce.

My first thought was that it wouldn't have tempted me as a child because it's totally without chocolate. But it seemed like a nice holiday-ish dessert for the Fourth of July.


I didn't try her ice cream recipe because I wanted chocolate, but I put the mango and the blueberries in it, and I made the raspberry coulis. What a tasty treat! It was melting too fast to get a good "before" photo - sorry! But I am very pleased that on this of all holidays I found an English dessert to enjoy.

  1. You could have left the icecream out all day here and it wouldn't have melted :)) xx

    1. I was hoping an English person would come along and say they were acquainted with these things, Clare! I didn't know how obscure they might be.

    2. They aren't obscure but sooo filling and rich! They are available from most cafés and restaurants that sell ice-creams but I don't eat ice-cream very often.

  3. Further to our earlier conversation, you realise this could be the next stage in our sneaky attempt to get our empire back? It all starts with the disarmingly charming Mary Berry and her desserts...
