Norwegian Vanilla Cream Mould with fruit sauce

A delicate cream dessert from Norway, ideal after a substantial main course


1 packet powdered geletine
3 tablespoons water
600ml – 1 pint double cream
2 teaspons vanilla essence
30g – 1 oz sugar
500g – 1 lb mixed fruits – strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and cherries
Strawberry leaves make a lovely decoration.
Place the geletine and the water in a small bowl over a pan of hot water stir until the geletine has dissolved.
Whisk the cream, vanilla essence and sugar until well blended. Add the dissolved geletine and whisk until the mixture thickens. Pour the cream into a 900 ml – 1 1/2 pint 19 cm – 7 1/2 inch ring mould. Place in the fridge and leave to set for 3-4 hours.
Dip the mould into hand-hot water to loosen the cream, invert onto a serving plate. Fill the centre with the fresh fruits and decorate with the leaves if desired. Serve with Berry sauce, see below.
