Thanks to Laura, our Editor-in-Chief, we’re all wild about syllabub, the Old English dessert made with whipped cream, white wine (or sherry) and sugar. Our festive slant uses mango purée but syllabub can be reinterpreted any number of ways with your preferred fruits and boozes (strawberries and amaretto, anyone?). Bonus wow factor: The final stage of this elegant and easy finish to your Boxing Day brunch can be whipped up, à la minute, in front of your guests.


Mango Purée



  1. Place six small dessert glasses in the freezer.

Mango Purée

  1. In a small bowl, combine the mango purée and sugar. Set aside.


  1. In a bowl, combine the cream, sugar, wine, lemon zest and juice until the sugar has dissolved. Freeze for 30 minutes. When the cream mixture is cold, whip with an electric mixer until firm peaks form.
  2. With a spatula, gently fold in the mango purée. Spoon into the chilled glasses and serve.


You can replace mango purée with melted mango sorbet. Omit the sugar in step 2.
