Boodle’s Orange Fool
A deliciously citrus Boodle’s Orange Fool recipe from Around Britain Cookbook.
Trifle sponges 6, cut in half lengthways
Oranges 3 large, grated rind and juice of 2 plus segments of 1
Lemon 1, grated rind and juice
Sugar 25g (1oz)
Double cream 450ml (16fl oz)
Orange and lemon rind curls to decorate, optional
Place the sponge slices in a large serving bowl so that they cover the base and come halfway up the sides. Cover with the orange segments.
Mix the citrus rind and juice with the sugar, until it is completely dissolved.
Add the cream and whisk together until it is light and thickened.
Pour the mixture over the sponge and refrigerate overnight. Decorate with orange and lemon rind curls (if using) and serve.
