  • Colombine¬†by In cucina con Marika: the¬†small doves are made with a brioche dough, lightly scented with lemon zest. They are very soft, the slightly bitter taste of lemon peel breaks the sweet flavour making them very good. We¬†ate all of them¬†the very morning after baking them during¬†a sumptuous breakfast ūüėČ . Since the Easter period has passed, you can transform the small doves into¬†other forms to avoid having to wait until next year to prepare this recipe.
  • Cassata di Costanza d‚ÄôAragona¬†by Pasticci e Pasticcina di Mimma:¬†really rich dessert, reminiscent of a fusion of classical Neapolitan pastiera and Sicilian cassata ūüôā . The cake is really good, the different layers are mixed to perfection, making every bite a unique experience. Orange marmalade breaks excessive sweetness that often characterizes pastiera and cassata. Perhaps the cakes a bit long to prepare, but the end result certainly pays for¬†the whole cooking time.
  • Pizza with custard and cherries¬†by Miel & Mandorle: two layers of shortcut pastry enclosing a delicious custard enriched with¬†cherries.¬†We have to say that also this recipe¬†was very good, and had the¬†advantage that¬†we are big fans of custards, every time that we prepare some, we eat way too much of it. The addition of the cherries makes it more tasteful and creates a pleasant change of consistency while savoring the slices of cake.

After these brief reviews we hope that you also will¬†prepare¬†and taste these three desserts¬†ūüėÄ . Now we just have to congratute¬†the winner… Drum roll… A bit of suspense… The winner is¬†Mimma with Cassata di Constanza d’Aragona! The winner will receive at home a nice prize!

Happy Monday. Expect new recipes, videos and even new contest soon! ūüėÄ
