  • 2 medium eggs, separated
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 250g tub mascarpone
  • 150ml pot double cream
  • 125ml marsala wine
  • 175g pack sponge finger
  • 400g mix of nectarines and peach, stoned and diced



    Sweet, juicy and fragrant, peaches are one of the most beautiful fruit around. Around the size…

  • 50g crunchy amaretti biscuit


  1. Use an electric whisk to beat the egg yolks with half the sugar until the mixture is pale and moussey – this will take 3-4 mins. Beat the mascarpone in a large mixing bowl to loosen, then beat in the double cream until just combined. Scrape in the mousse mixture and beat everything together until smooth and light.

  2. Clean the beaters, then whisk the egg whites in another bowl until stiff peaks hold on the end of the beaters. Tip in the remaining sugar and beat until glossy and stiff again. Use a big metal spoon to stir a third of this into the cream mixture, then gently fold in the rest.

  3. Get your serving dish or bowl ready, then put the Marsala in a shallow plate and dip in a few sponge fingers at a time so they are just soaked but not soggy. Layer half of the fingers evenly in your dish, then scatter over half the fruit. Top with half the cream mixture, then crumble over half the crunchy amaretti biscuits. Repeat the layers, but finish with the cream and save the other half of the biscuits. Cover and chill for a few hrs, or overnight.

  4. To serve, crumble over the remaining biscuits, then spoon into bowls.

This pudding is gorgeous! I used frozen nectarines and peaches from Sainsburys which I defrosted overnight in the fridge. The combination of fruit, creamy stuff, booze and crunchy Amaretti biscuits was just perfect. It was demolished by my friends in one sitting on Saturday night!

One of our favourite summer puddings. Works well with tinned peaches and apricots as well, if you can’t get fresh.

This is a truly delicious pud. The peaches i bought didn't ripen in time so i layered strawberries, blackberries & raspberries instead, added tiny Amaretti biscuits (Morrisons) to the mix as well as putting them on top. If you don't have marsala wine, mix a nip of brandy with a glug of white wine. It is a versatile, flexible yet stunning desert. So easy!

Great sophisticated fruity pud! I made 6 (rather large) individual puds and they were really tasty. The custard mousse works really well with the peach/nectarine/ apricot combo, and the crushed amaretti biscuits on top add crunch. Really worth trying!
