Happy Mother’s Day! I don’t know about you, but I’ve certainly got the most amazing Mum ever! She supports and loves me in every way and this is really something to thank her for. (Also, without her help, this blog wouldn’t be possible, because as fond as I am of baking, I do not exactly like tidying and cleaning afterwarts much. 😉 So, she helps me out often after I’ve cooked or baked, which is really very kind of her! ❤Therefore I dedicate this post to her. This recipe will give you a very quick and easy Mother’s Day dessert. I chose it, because I myself don’t have much time to bake today as I’m about to play in a concert and have to get ready soon.
To add a special Mother’s Day-ish touch to the ice cream, or sorbet, to be precise, I made a lovely litte caramel decoration: A flower and a heart topped with blueberries.And voilà – you’ve got something sweet and simple to say ‘thank you’ to the person who’s been there for you your entire life.
Thank you, Mum! ❤
Blueberry Sorbet with Caramel Decoration
Preparation time: 20 min
Total time: 30-40 min (with an ice cream-machine)
- 250g blueberries
- 150g sugar
- 2 dl water
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 2 egg whites
- 150g sugar
- 3 tbsp. water
- a bit of canola oil
- a few blueberries
- Put sugar and water into a pot and bring to the boil. Cook until the mixture starts to thicken up. Let it cool down completely.
- Blend sugar mixture, lemon juice and blueberries. Whisk the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold the egg whites into the blueberry-mixture and combine, trying to keep the volume.
- Put the sorbet mixture into the ice cream maker and freeze it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. For a soft texture consume right now, for a firmer texture place it into a container and put it into the freezer as long as you like.
- In the meantime, prepare the caramel decoration: Dip heart and flower forms into the canola oil and put them onto a baking parchment.
Put sugar and water into a pot and bring to the boil while stirring.
As soon as the mixture starts to turn brown, stop stirring (you can still toss).
Pour the caramel into the forms and decorate some of the hearts with fresh blueberries (while the caramel is still liquid).
