Beat the egg yolks, vanilla essence and castor sugar till frothy.

Mix the mascarpone and lemon essence in a separate bowl till it softens. Add this to egg yolk mixture and beat well, until lumps disappear.

Whip the egg white until stiff but not dry. Gently fold into into the mascarpone/egg mixture, in two lots.

Whip the fresh cream and teaspoon of caster sugar until firm. Don’t over-beat.

Fold cream gently into mascarpone mixture.

Use a fork to gently smash the macerating berries. Add berries and half the lemon zest to the mascarpone and mix gently to distribute.

Spoon into a medium-sized  greased silicone mold, or individual ramekins, also greased, or oil and cover a standard baking tin with cling film and pour mixture in.

Freeze for four hours or until set.

Remove from freezer and allow to soften very slightly (use a hot tea-towel is necessary – not necessary with greased silicone molds). Serve either in the ramekins or un-mold.

Serve with remaining lemon zest for a lovely, aromatic twist.
