Panettone con Crema al Mascarpone (Panettone with Mascarpone Cream)
Yield: 6-8 servings
1 panettone cake (pandoro works well too!)
6 oz (150 g) sugar
14 oz (350 g) fresh mascarpone cheese
3 eggs, yolks and whites separated
In a bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar. Add the mascarpone and whisk to a soft, frothy cream.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites to a stiff peak.
Using a spatula and with a downwards motion, fold the whites into the mascarpone cream. Stir until the ingredients are well-combined.
Warm panettone in the oven for a few minutes. Cut into slices and serve each slice with a dollop of mascarpone cream. Garnish with fresh berries, chocolate shavings, or a sprinkling of cocoa powder.
