Retro Summer Desserts


Fool, posset, floating islands, syllabub – just the names of these retro desserts make you want to smile... Some of these recipes – such as Regula Ysewijn's sherry-rich Posset and Fruit Fool – date back centuries; others, such as Signe Johansen's Knickerbocker Glory and Lorraine Pascale's Black Forest Cupcakes filled with cherry jam, shout '1970s'. All are guaranteed to please.
