This raspberry ripple sandwich is a lovely, dreamy mix of sweet whipped cream, tart raspberries, and crispy toasted bread.

We all know that iconic scene from Friends (I feel like the word “iconic” has become far too commonplace, don’t you? Everything is iconic these days. “Name a more iconic duo, I’ll wait” and so on. But this scene really is iconic.) where Rachel messes up the trifle at Thanksgiving and puts beef sauteed with peas and onions as one of the layers. Everyone naturally hates it except for Joey who lists off the ingredients, ending with a guttural “gooooooood” about the beef layer. It’s an amazing scene.

That “gooooooood” is how I feel about this Raspberry Ripple Sandwich. It’s not really a “sandwich” it’s bread topped with whipped cream mixed with crushed raspberries. So I guess you could call it an open faced sandwich? Fruit and whipped cream sandwiches are apparently a staple in Japanese culture? I’ve not been to Japan (although I desperately want to) so I cant really speak to it. It’s possible that because it’s such a pretty presentation that it’s overrepresented and that’s why I think it’s a staple. Who knows.

But what I DO know is that toasty sweet white bread with homemade whipped cream and crushed fruit should be a staple for Every. Single. Person.

Raspberry Ripple Sandwich
  • 1/4 cup raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 slices of bread of choice (a sweet bread like Challah or Brioche is best)
To Make Raspberry Ripple Sandwich
In a bowl crush the raspberries with a fork and mix in the sugar. Let sit while you make the whipped cream.
In a small bowl, using a hand mixer, beat the cream until peaks are just about to form. At that point, add the vanilla and powdered sugar, and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
Toast the bread.
Mix the raspberries into the whipped cream, and top the toasted bread with the raspberry whipped cream mixture.
