Madama Doré

It never happens I prepare the same dessert in a close time. Here I can talk about a special situation…… I prepared the fantastic Madama Dorè, by Gianluca Fusto, twice in a week. It is a simple tart, but you find a combination of exceptional flavors: a frangipane enriched with orange zest and saffron and soft peaches. It is crisp, but at the same time it is soft, tasty, fragrant This dessert has all the items to turn a tart in THE TART.

Red cherry….the only way it could be called this dessert…….a cherry and white chocolate bavarian cream. Inside a yogurt chantilly, that perfectly matches with the bavarian cream, then a pistachio biscuit Joconde, that fits perfectly with cherries. A balanced dessert, creamy but crunchy and soft……all the elements to become one of your favorite desserts. Recipes by Luca Montersino, but the biscuit Joconde: the recipe comes from Isabelle.

Raspberries not baked cheesecake

Everyone loves cheesecake….. It can be prepared baked or unbaked, it can be flavored and is often served topped with fruit, chocolate or whipped cream. Usa dedicate one special day to this famous dessert: National Cheesecake Day is observed annually on July 30th. The cheesecake I offer you, is a rare dessert, with a juicy and jelly raspberries layer inside. You can find a lemon crunchy sablée with a creamy, rich cheese batter flavored with lemon zest. Very easy to make, it is one of my favorite desserts. A bright and fresh cheesecake….perfect for summer season.

Apple cake

Apples cake

An apple cake is not the perfect Fall dessert only…… can be prepared along all the year. Each home baker has a secret recipe for the “best” apple cake….. This cake is the best apple cake I can remember. Super soft, thanks to the dough: infact the recipe calls for pastry choux recipe……but the proportions are different. I suggest you to try it: served plain, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of softly whipped cream.
