  • 1. Zest and then juice the orange. Place frozen berries and orange juice in a saucepan and cook until soft.

  • 3. Once berry sauce is cooled, break up the sponge into a glass dish and layer with sauce and yoghurt, finishing with a yoghurt layer.

  • 4. Top with leftover sauce and fresh berries. Pistachios make a nice addition too!
