The simplest of all recipes, this set-custard-slash-mousse pot is creamy, zesty and entirely foolproof. Using very few ingredients, the syllabub is infused with thyme and set with lemon juice. Simply serve with sponge fingers and a good cup of coffee.
*1 tsp rose extract
*A sprig of fresh lemon thyme, leaves picked
*300ml double cream
