I suggest using frozen berries for this. A bag of those in the freezer will mean you can always knock together a simple dessert without having to run to the corner shop for an overpriced Mars bar.
Baked ricotta (serves 2)
You will need:
- 2 heaped tbsp berries
- 200g ricotta
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 2 tbsp honey
- Preheat your oven to 160C/320F/gas mark 3.
- Pop a tablespoon of berries into each ramekin. Mix together the ricotta, vanilla and honey in a small bowl, then divide between the ramekins. Shake gently so the ricotta mix sinks to the bottom, then smooth the surface.
- Place on a baking tray and cook for 20-30 minutes. It should be just set and lightly golden.
- Leave to cool, then turn out onto a plate. Serve with a drizzle of honey and some more berries.
