published on 18 December, 2017 at 13:00A tasty way to use Pandoro to make a unique dessert for Christmas or to use up leftover Pandoro after the holidays!
Pandoro, as needed
hazelnut cream, as needed
coffee, as needed
For the filling:
250g mascarpone cheese
2 pasteurized egg yolks
2 egg whites beaten to soft peaks
1. Cover a bread pan with a sheet of plastic wrap. Place some pieces of pandoro in the pan and soak them with coffee.
2. Alternating, add the mascarpone cream, then the hazelnut cream and more pandoro soaked on coffee.
3. Refrigerate it for about 3 hours. Dust with cocoa powder and decorate with hazelnut cream.
HERE’S HOW TO PASTEURIZE THE EGG YOLKS:
Place the yolks in a bowl and beat them. In a small pan, prepare a syrup by using 50g of sugar and 25g of water. Let the syrup cook over a low flame. When the syrup is ready, pour it over the yolks as you continue beating them. This makes the egg yolks totally safe to eat!
If you don’t want to pasteurize the eggs, you can simply beat them together with 50g of sugar until mixture becomes nice and frothy.
