Spring is here. And with spring comes berries, which means its time to share this fabulous dessert. It is a favorite from my new cookbook and is called “Berries in Compote with Vanilla Paste Sour Whipped Cream”…
See the beautiful flecks of vanilla bean in the whipped cream? That comes from our amazing vanilla paste! It has a clean vanilla taste without all the alcohol found in extract. We use it in place of extract in all our recipes. If you bake a lot it’s worth it to get the big bottle!
The Recipe: Berries in Compote with Vanilla ‘Sour’ Whipped Cream
If you would like to skip the sugar use Stevia drops to taste instead of sugar in both the compote and whipped cream.

- 6 cups fresh berries a mixture of any variety of berries you wish
- 1/3 C sugar I like super fine sugar like Caster sugar or bakers sugar
- 1/3 C freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/3 cup Crème Fraiche
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- ½ T vanilla paste
Combine all fruit in a large bowl. Gently stir. Separate 1 cup fruit and place in another bowl. Add orange juice and sugar to the separated fruit and mash with a fork or potato masher. Once mashed, pour over the fruit in large bowl and leave at room temp for 1 ½ -2 hours.
Add all ingredients to a bowl and use a mixer to whip till desired consistency. Top berries with cream.
