Amarena Layered Dessert

Amarena Layered Dessert

By: LUSI
Ingredients

1 rectangular sponge cake 

2 rectangles of puff pastry vanilla custard 

Fabbri Amarenas 

Amaretto sugar syrup 

Icing sugar

Time

20 - 60 minutes

Serves

x 4

 

Method

Make the sponge cake using any recipe you like, in a rectangular cake tin. Roll out the puff pastry in the same shape as the sponge cake, with 2 rectangles. As soon as it is cooked, remove from the oven and spread with cocoa butter and icing sugar.  Bake for a few more minutes. In the meantime, make the vanilla custard.  When it has cooled, assemble the dessert, using a rectangular springform cake tin without the base, placed on a serving plate. Put a rectangle of caramelized puff pastry on the bottom, followed by a layer of custard, and then scatter with amarenas.  Follow with a layer of sponge cake soaked in Amaretto sugar syrup, another layer of custard and amarenas, and finally a layer of puff pastry. Cover with plastic wrap and put a weight on top of the dessert (I used 2 cartons of milk).  Leave to rest overnight, remove the cake tin and sprinkle with icing sugar.  You can add any decoration you like.
