Italian Recipes for Delicious Desserts

When thinking of Italy, it conjures up the image of all kinds of delicious food. Pizza, pasta, coffee — the Italian style of eating is luxurious and indulgent, made with the best ingredients, from the first starter to the main courses through to a delicious dessert. If you’ve had several courses of a great meal, then it’s only right that the final course be just as fine as the previous courses. So here we’re going to look at how you can make authentic Italian styled desserts in your own kitchen, starting with real Italian cream.

Italian Cream Recipe
1 quart of milk; whole or 2%
5 egg yolks
5 tbsp of flour
5 tbsp of sugar

Start by whisking the eggs with the sugar until you’re made a soft cream. Next add the flour carefully, but by bit to avoid the formation of lumps. Gradually pour in the milk, stirring the whole time to keep the lumps away. Per your own preference, you can add lemon rind or vanilla essence to the mixture for an additional kick.

Next, heat the mixture over a low flame, and keep mixing until you have achieved a smooth consistency. Now it’s ready to go in another dessert or served alongside or on top of other delicious snacks.

Orange Dessert Recipe
9 oz of flour
15 oz of sugar
4.5 oz of butter
3 yolks
3 egg whites
6 oranges
Dessert yeast

Start by heating the butter in a saucepan, dissolve the yeast in a little milk and grate the rind of a pair of oranges. Then whisk the egg whites and yolks in separate containers.

Add the yolks, 9 ounces of the sugar, the flour, butter, yeast and rind from 2 more oranges, plus whisked egg whites and knead it all together, then bake for 30 minutes. In the meantime, mix the juice of the remaining oranges with 5 ounces of sugar. When the dessert is cold, make a series of holes on top to pour in the orange juice to infuse the flavour. Serve cold, with a side serving of the cream described above, and enjoy!
