  • You will need an electric mixer


Zabaglione with Mascarpone

  • 250g caster sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tbsp Marsala wine
  • 500g mascarpone at room temperature

Torta di Verona

  • 1kg SIMON JOHNSON Pandoro 3-4 slices, we used approximately half the Pandoro for this recipe
  • 6 tbsp Amaretto Liqueur adjust to taste
  • 6 tbsp Marsala wine adjust to taste
  • 390g Agrimontana Sour Amarene Cherries
  • 130g PONS Caramelised Marcona Almonds


Zabaglione with Mascarpone

  • Combine sugar and eggs in a heatproof bowl. Using an electric mixer, whisk until light & foamy and mixture has increased in volume.
  • Gradually add 2 tbsp Marsala, whisking continuously for a smooth consistency.
  • Place the bowl over a medium size saucepan of gently simmering water. Gently whisk zabaglione until the mixture thickens and forms soft peaks.
  • Remove from heat and gently fold in the mascarpone, stir until smooth. Mixture will thicken at room temperature.

Torta di Verona

  • Cut Pandoro horizontally into 5cm “star” sections, starting from the base through to the top. We used 4 slices for our dessert.
  • Add the largest Pandoro slice to the base of a serving dish. Drizzle with a tablespoon of Amaretto and Marsala wine. Add a generous dollop of the zabaglione & mascarpone mixture, and smear over the slice of pandoro, followed by a spoonful of Amarene cherries.
  • Repeat the process until all the layers are assembled, moving from the largest to the smallest on top.
  • Garnish the final layer with the caramelised Marcona almonds before serving. Serve the remaining zabaglione & mascarpone mixture on the side.
