It’s saturday and this week of passion is nearly over, but I still got some delicious passionfruit recipes I’d like to share with you. There’s an old dessert that I’ve been very curious about so I decided that this week is perfect for just that. Flummery is a dessert that goes waaay back, to the 18th century. Many countries has different ways of making it, but I decided to go with a english version. It’s kind of like a pudding and kind of like a mousse, and it tastes delicious! You can flavour your flummery with whatever you want. I have, of course, chosen to flavour mine with passionfruit. I serve it with a dollop of cream and some ginger snap crumbs to add a little bit of texture.

3/4 lemon (strain the juice)passionfruit flummery delliedelicious
2 oranges (strain the juice)
250 ml water
2 tbs plain flour
150 g caster sugar
1 tbs powdered gelatine
125 ml passionfruit pulp

whipped cream (to serve)
biscuit crumbs (optional)

Place all the ingredients, except for the passionfruit pulp, in a medium saucepan. Whisk together until well combined. Bring it to the boil over medium heat, stir constantly and let it simmer for 2 minutes.
Pour the mixture into a heatproof bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and stir in the passionfruit pulp. With an electric beater beat the mixture for 15 minutes, until it’s pale and thick.
Pour the mixture into 4 serving glasses and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 2 hours until the flummery is set.

Serve with cream and, if you want, crumbs of your favorite biscuit. Delicious!
