Pimp your pandoro

If you doubt whether that our amazing pandoro can be improved – try this. Slice the pandoro horizontally into layers, smear each one in this wicked blend of macarpone, cream and sugar and stand back. You will not only have a beautiful looking cake, but one that will be eaten even before the tea is finished brewing.


Recipe

  • Serves 4

Ingredients

  • Pandoro one which is 1.65lbs/750g 
  • Mascarpone cheese – 9oz/250g
  • Whipping cream – 4.5oz/125g 
  • Egg yolk – 2 
  • White sugar – 4.5oz/125g
Pandoro one which is 1.65lbs/750g  Mascarpone cheese – 9oz/250g Whipping cream – 4.5oz/125g  Egg yolk – 2  White sugar – 4.5oz/125g

Method

Whip the cream into stiff peaks using an electric whisk (the colder the cream is at the start the easiest). Then beat the egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl until they are pale and smooth. Next add the mascarpone and then gently fold in the cream. Cut the pandoro horizontally into thick, even slices (with our pandoro it will probably be 5 or 6 max). Starting with the lowest slice first spread each one with the mascarpone cream and place each slice on slightly rotated so the points of the star don’t align. Finally dust the cake with the pack of icing sugar that comes with it.
