Zuppa inglese al pandoro

Trifle to Pandora: one of the simplest and most delicious recipes to recycle the pandoro left over from the Christmas holidays. The English soup is one of the classic desserts of Italian pastry. Its origins probably Emilia-Romagna, but it is also widespread in other regions, such as Lazio, and much loved everywhere. And since it is a much loved and sweet that many have you wondered, found on my YouTube channel the VIDEO RECIPE STEP BY STEP, with many extras tips and trivia. As I told you in the recipe SOUP ENGLISH meringue, initially it was only prepared with the custard, but now it is almost always prepared with the cream to alternating lemon to that chocolate. In this version 'of recycling’ the trifle, I decided to use the advanced Pandora instead of the canonical ladyfingers or sponge cake.

Since I cook a lot at the end of the holidays I always have several advanced things. Starting from the usual Pandoro and panettone to end up with so much stale bread, meat sauce, boiled meat to make broth, etc.. As you know, I do not throw anything edible and then study so many recipes to recycle leftovers into delicious way.

A good choice, because the Pandora gives the trifle a more delicate taste, lightly scented vanilla. The bathes is absorbed in abundance and pandoro remains soft and gives a touch trifle more. For the chocolate cream, I recommend you use a chocolate 62% minimum cocoa: to make the cream more intense chocolate, I also add a little’ unsweetened cocoa powder. If you prefer milk chocolate or less bitter taste, you can not put the cocoa powder.

And if there is pandoro advanced panettone, try the wonderful PANETTONE PUDDING WITH CHOCOLATE AND PEARS, really amazing and easy. At this point, I remind you to have a look at all my RECIPES DESSERT SPOON, creamy and delicious, starting from TIRAMISU’. Have a nice day!
