Preparation time: 10 minutes
Standing time: 1 hour
Ingredients (for 4 people):
- 2 roses, perfumed if possible
- 1 tablespoon rose water
- juice of 2 lemons
- 3 tablespoons icing sugar
- 170g condensed milk
- few drops vanilla extract
- 284ml carton whipping cream, softly whipped
- 225g fresh or frozen raspberries, defrosted
- 4 small meringues, crushed but not too small
Pick the rose petals from the stalks. Roughly chop the petals and place in a small bowl with the rose water, lemon juice and icing sugar and leave for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Using a hand blender whizz the mixture into a loose puree, leaving small pieces of rose petal visible.
In a large bowl, fold together the condensed milk, vanilla extract and whipping cream.
Reserve a few raspberries for the top and slightly crush the rest of them into the rose petal mixture, releasing the juice, and then gently ripple through the vanilla cream.
Layer the meringue and the raspberry cream into 4 sundae dishes or bowls and top with a few raspberries.
