  • 100g of glucose
  • 1 lemon

  • 200ml of Pimm's

  • 10 gelatine leaves
7
Strain the jelly mixture into a large jug and pour the Pimm’s mixture into your doughnut moulds and fill up to half way (there will be liquid leftover which will be used in step 8). Leave to set in the fridge

Once the jelly has set, remove from the fridge and place 3 raspberries and 3 basil leaves into each mould. Fill to the top with the remaining liquid and leave to set in the fridge
  • 1 punnet of raspberries
