Amaretto Cream with Savoyard Biscuits

I usually bake cakes because each cake is like a canvas to me, but this time I decided to experiment with something different. A light cream which could make a perfect dessert for my family was my previous week project.  My husband was thrilled with the result and to be honest, this is a cream I will prepare again for sure.

Here you can see all the ingredients I used for this dessert.
Amaretto Cream Ingredients
700gr fresh milk,  320gr fresh cream,  10gr vanilla sugar,  120gr caster sugar, 90gr corn flour, 1 egg, 1 tsp amaretto liqueur, 1 shot filter coffee, 100gr almonds (crashed), 1 banana (thinly cut),
Cream Base Ingredients
200gr Savoyard biscuits, 1 cup fresh milk, 1 tsp amaretto

  Mix the egg, sugar and corn flour in a bowl, add 1 cup of the milk and mix in well.

Heat the rest of the milk with the fresh cream and vanilla to boiling point, pour onto the egg mixture, whisking vigorously.

Return to the saucepan, and cook, stirring all the time, until it boils. Then add coffee and amaretto liqueur.

Retain in a bowl with the surface covered with clean film to prevent a skin from forming, until cool.

Pure 1 tsp of amaretto into 1 cup of milk and then deep in Savoyard biscuits, one at a time.

 Lay the biscuits in a Pyrex and form the base of the cream.

Sprinkle half of the crashed almonds on top of the biscuits.

 Then add the banana pieces.

Pour on top of the Savoyard base the amaretto cream.

Sprinkle on top of the cream the rest of the crashed almonds.  Refrigerate for two hours before serving.

  4. An amazing combination of ingredients but my daughter doesn't like coffee, so I rarely use it. I made something similar last week with lychees compote and chocolate.

ΑΦΗΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΣΧΟΛΙΟ ΣΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΠΕΙΤΕ ΣΕ ΚΛΗΡΩΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ! -------------------------------------
Η συμπατριώτισσα μας και φίλη μου Ήβη Λιακοπούλου, από το μπλογκΚοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου, που ζει στην Ελλάδα εδώ και πάρα πολλά χρόνια, επιτέλους μετάφρασε στα Ελληνικά το βιβλίο της Mint Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste, το οποίο αγόρασα μόλις κυκλοφόρησε, πριν 1½  χρόνο περίπου, και πραγματικά εκεί βρήκα όλες τις παραδοσιακές συνταγές της Κύπρου. Ήδη μαγείρεψα πάρα πολλές συνταγές και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι καμία δεν με απογοήτευσε.
Εάν έχετε συγγενείς και φίλους, Έλληνες, Κύπριους ή γνώστες της Ελληνικής γλώσσας που θέλουν να μάθουν την Κυπριακή κουζίνα, σίγουρα ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο θα εκτιμηθεί δεόντως. Κάντε το δώρο στον εαυτό σας ή στα παιδιά σας που είναι φοιτητές και θέλουν να μάθουν να μαγειρεύουν, ή ακόμη κάντε το δώρο στους φίλους σας αυτά τα Χριστούγεννα. Στοιχίζει όσο δύο καφέδες!! Μόνο 6 Ευρώ από το μπλογκ της, σε μορφή pdf, αλλά εάν το θέλετε σε άλλη μο…

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
