White chocolate basil cream with sticky balsamic strawberries

I am very much a cake person and not so much a dessert person! When it comes to making them, I mean - when it comes to eating, I'll eat it all :)

I found this recipe on BBC Good Food and was very intrigued by it as I've never used white chocolate and basil together.  The only change I made was to use just two or three sprigs of basil as opposed to a whole bunch.  This allowed for a subtle flavour of basil to come through.  I think a whole bunch would have been very overpowering .

The tang of the balsamic counteracts the sweetness of the white chocolate.  This dessert is very easy to do and I really liked it.  It received mixed reactions from the people I served it one of my friends said "once you get used to the strangeness of it, its very nice".   I'm taking that as a compliment!!! :)


  1. Looks (and sounds!) perfectly scrummy to me, I love interesting combinations, so I'll have to give it a go next time I have people round for dinner


I love hearing what you have to say! Please take a minute and leave a comment!
