  • 600 ml double (heavy) cream
  • 140 g caster (superfine) sugar
  • 2 lemons (juice of)

To serve

  • 3 passion fruit


  • Put the double cream and sugar in a large* saucepan. Heat gently, stirring often, until the sugar has dissolved. Allow the cream to come to the boil and boil for exactly three minutes.
  • Stir in the lemon juice.
  • Allow the posset to cool until you can comfortably touch the side of the pan.
  • Very gently whisk so that the skin dissolves into the posset but you don’t add air to the mixture.
  • Pour the posset into serving glasses. Allow to cool completely, then chill.
  • Spoon the passionfruit seeds over the possets and serve.


*The cream will boil up so make sure you use a large pan. I use my large pasta pan and the cream boils up to the rim.
