I had this the other night and it was divine!
- 1 cup mascarpone cheese
- 2⁄3 cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
- 1 1⁄2 cups whipping cream
- 4 cups sliced strawberries
- 1⁄3 cup orange-flavored liqueur
- 10 ounces frozen pound cake
- 6 ounces unsweetened chocolate squares or 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, grated
- strawberry, halves (to garnish) (optional)
- Chill one large glass and one medium glass bowl for about 20 minutes.
- In the large bowl beat together the mascarpone, sugar, orange juice and zest until creamy.
- In the medium bowl whip cream until soft peaks form.
- Fold the whipped cream into the cheese mixture.
- Combine the strawberries and orange liquor.
- Cut the cake into 1/2 inch slices.
- Arrange 1/2 of the slices in the bottom of a 8 cup glass bowl.
- Top with 1/2 the sliced strawberries, including 1/2 the juice/liquor.
- Spread with half the mascarpone mixture.
- Sprinkle with half the grated chocolate.
- Repeat layers ending with grated chocolate.
- Cover and chill for at least 4 hours, up to 12 hours.
Yum! I didn't have orange liquor so I made an orange syrup from fresh orange juice and sugar. I will definitely be making this one again.
Another delicious new find! I took this to our friends pre-xmas dinner party & it reigned supremacy over all of our other desserts! I used Marg's Dark Chocolate Cake (Recipe #2496) for the base which always turns out so moist, it was perfect! So decadent & even better for breakfast lol! I was catering for a preggo so had to the cointreau, substituting with the syrup from a can of mandarins & so I added the fruit into the middle layer of strawberries. It was so rich & smooth, almost like a pre-chopped gateau!! Judging from everyone's response it will no doubt be amongst my top pot luck dinner requests from now on - guaranteed! Thanks :)
