Deanna’s Raspberries

  • Author: Meagan


I figure that if there can be a dessert named Peaches Catherine, then there can be something equally as tasty called Deanna’s Raspberries.  I own the Joy of Cooking, but it’s a difficult cookbook to browse through – Mom found this idea on page 453, and it’s the real reason behind crème fraîche – plus, we have a silly amount of raspberries in the garden this year.  Enjoy!



Deanna’s Raspberries

2 c. + fresh raspberries

1/2 c. + crème fraîche

24 T. dark brown sugar


Divide the raspberries among 4 small, equal sized, oven-proof dishes – the more shallow they are, the more surface area for the cream and sugar, I used 1 cup ramekins.  Place a good dollop of crème fraîche on the top of each and sprinkle as you’d like with the brown sugar.

Broil for 2-3 minutes until the sugar melts – be careful as the dishes will be red hot, but the raspberries probably won’t be – and serve immediately.  This is really just a fancy twist on berries and cream (or ice cream), and very delightful.
