Himmelsk Mundfeld

In Danish, Himmelsk Mundfeld (him-ehlsk mund-fell) means, literally, heavenly mouthful, an excellent name for this mouthwatering and deceptively rich dessert.

8 oz. raspberries, hulled and washed

1 eating apple, peeled, cored and diced

4 oz. black grapes, halved and seeded

2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

1 pear, peeled, cored and sliced

4 oz. cherries, stoned

1 banana, thinly sliced

2 eggs plus

3 egg yolks

2 oz. castor sugar

2 tablespoons Madeira

In a medium-sized serving bowl, combine the fruit and nuts. Place the bowl in the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour.

In a medium-sized heatproof mixing bowl, beat the eggs and yolks together with a wire whisk or rotary beater until the mixture is frothy. Gradually add the sugar and Madeira, beating constantly. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water over low heat. Continue beating until the mixture is thick and will make a ribbon trail on itself when the whisk is lifted. Remove the bowl from the heat and pour the sauce over the fruit and nuts. Serve immediately.
