A rich, delicious Italian layered dessert of mascarpone custard, whipped cream and coffee soaked biscuits.
I love lemon, and this Italian treat hits the spot. I rarely make sweets or cakes, but sometimes give it a try, especially when cooking with my 3 year old daughter, who loves stirring, sieving flour, breaking eggs and tasting! I based this on a recipe from the excellent 'Italian Cakes and Desserts' book by Ursula Ferrigno.
Rich Lemon Cheescake, served chilled and with double cream (optional).
This classic Italian dessert is made with sponge fingers (also known as ladyfingers or boudoir biscuits) and mascarpone cheese. It can be made in a trifle bowl or a spring form cake tin.
This easy no-bake cheesecake is creamy, smooth and tangy. Simply leave in the fridge for longer if you prefer a more solid filling. I used homemade lemon curd for the topping (it's very simple to make and absolutely delicious if you don't mind a bit of stirring). I'm sure shop-bought lemon curd would also be very nice.
