  • 9 inch tart case


  • 300 grams Digestive Biscuits or Graham Crackers
  • 150 grams Melted Unsalted Butter
  • 300 ml Double or Heavy Cream
  • 100 grams Caster Sugar
  • 50 ml Fresh Lemon Juice 3 tbsp plus 1 tsp
  • 200 grams Fresh Raspberries


  • Add the caster sugar and cream into a medium sized saucepan (the mixture will bubble up!) over low heat. Stir regularly until the sugar has completely melted into the cream.
  • Allow the mixture to bubble for 2 minutes (no more! I set a timer), stirring constantly. Keep the heat on low and make sure you are stirring thoroughly so that none of the mixture can stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice. Allow to cool a little while you prepare the base.
  • Add the digestives or graham crackers to a food processor and blitz until resembling fine breadcrumbs. You can also place them in a food safe bag and bash with a rolling pin until crumbled.
  • Mix in the melted butter until fully combined - the mixture will resemble damp sand. Then press the mixture into a 9 inch tart case making sure the bottom and sides are equally covered.
  • Scatter half of the raspberries (100g) over the bottom of the tart case, then pour the lemon mixture carefully over the top. I like to use a fork to press the raspberries down so they are all fully covered by the lemon mixture.
  • Place in the fridge to cool and set for a minimum of 4 hours, ideally overnight.
  • To serve, decorate with the remaining raspberries and any other fruit you like!
