  • crème fraiche – can be substituted with sour cream (see note below)
  • heavy cream
  • white sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • fresh mixed berries – choose your favorite
  • brown sugar
  • graham crackers
  • fresh mint leaves – as a garnish

You will also need: 4 small ramekins (7 oz. or 8 oz.) and a small baking rack that fits inside your skillet.

Note: While sour cream and crème fraiche taste similar and are made the same way, crème fraiche has more fat and less water, creating a richer, thicker ingredient. Crème fraiche works better in higher-heat dishes because it doesn’t curdle like sour cream. It has a milder tanginess compared to sour cream which balances out the fruit in this dessert.

Tips & Tweaks

Cream and sugar offer a blank palette for your favorite fruits. Popular choices include blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries, but you can experiment with diced kiwi, mango, cantaloupe or pineapple if you prefer. Or, get even more adventurous and try some exotic fruits such as pomegranate seeds and lychees.

Creamy desserts offer a lighter alternative to heavy treats, such as chocolate cake and brownies. If you’re having a full meal, this recipe pairs well with dishes such as salads, pasta, grilled chicken and fish. You can also serve berries and cream by itself for a summer brunch with mimosas.


Cream doesn’t last long at room temperature, so stash leftovers in the fridge as soon as possible. While this dessert is best consumed immediately, you can cover the ramekins with plastic wrap to keep the dessert fresh in the fridge for another 1 to 2 days.
