It’s been my mission lately to find simplest and quickest desserts recipes. I never ever bought pudding or any other dessert that pops out of a bag, don’t trust instant food. I think it’s way better to make pancakes in case of sudden, unexpected guests or night crave for something sweet. Let me share a tasty and simple dessert I made atleast 4 times last month. All you need from fridge for this great 10″ dessert is: mascarpone, eggs, sugar, some liquer and vanilla been. All other ingredients are optional. Be prepared to recieve as much compliments as when you make complicated layer cakes!
10″ Mascarpone cream
-makes 4 servigs-
-adopted from giallo zafferano.it-
- 250 g Mascarpone cheese
- 4 whole eggs
- 4 tsp cognac (or any other liquer you love, original recipe uses Marsala)
- 4 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 vanilla bean
- few tbsp Nutella and blackberry marmolade (you can add caramel, melted chocolate and any other marmolade you think goes best with mascarpone)
- 4 pcs Petit Buerre cookies (or any other dry cookie)
- 20 g dark chocolate (od good quality cocoa powder)
Separate the egg whites from the yolks, beat yolks with sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add cognac (don’t stop beating), mascarpone cheese and finally vanilla seeds. Beat until all ingredients are well blended. Add previously firmly beaten egg whites stirring with a spatula from the bottom up. Chush your favourite cookies on the bottom of 4 bowls, add one half of mascarpone cream, few drops of nutella and marmolade and cover with second half of mascarpone cream. Sprinkle all with grated dark chocolate or good quality cocoa powder. You can put also cruched almonds, crunchy granola, hot chocolate souce, hot berry souce…use whatever you find in your house.
Grab a spoon and enjoy 🙂
