This is one delicious dessert!
A flummery is a sweet soft dessert pudding that has been popular in England & Ireland for centuries! It has become a popular semi-set dessert which you will now find in many dessert bars.
To look at it you may confuse it to be a cream based dessert cup, but instead it is a soft ,smooth and light mousse that is quite refreshing!
Easy to make, however you will need to allow time to set in the fridge during prep and before serving. (probably 3 hrs)
