For a luscious dessert that can be prepared in a jiffy with just three simple ingredients, try Tamasin Day-Lewis' lemon posset


1. Pour the cream into a large saucepan and add the sugar. Boil for 3 minutes.

2. Remove from the heat and whisk in the lemon juice.

3. Strain the mixture into a jug before pouring into the ramekins. Leave them to cool and refrigerate for 4-6 hours before serving. Macaroons or almond tuiles make a lovely accompaniment.

Hello from England Janice! Out of the two options you have, I'd go for the long life cream. Creme fraiche just doesn't have the right consistency for posset I'm afraid.

Hi, I'm in France. Can I use creme fraiche instead? Or they have a very thin double cream in a long life carton. Please advise! Thanks.

The Lemon Posset was amazing and so easy but I would love the orange florentine details to as I missed these when the phone rang.
Can any one help.
