You'll need

To serve: 1 pandoro, dusted with icing sugar (see note) To serve: toasted flaked almonds   Prosecco and peach jelly 1.8 litres prosecco or sparkling wine 250 gm caster sugar, or to taste (see note) 1 vanilla bean, split 6 firm but ripe peaches, bases scored 10 titanium-strength gelatine leaves, softened in cold water for 5 minutes   Mascarpone cream 300 gm mascarpone 300 gm crème fraîche 300 ml thickened cream 40 gm (¼ cup) pure icing sugar Scraped seeds of ½ vanilla bean


  • 01
  • For prosecco and peach jelly, bring prosecco, sugar and vanilla to the simmer in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add peaches, cover with a piece of baking paper and weight with a small plate, then poach until peaches are just tender (5-10 minutes). Drain with a slotted spoon and set aside on a plate to cool slightly, then peel, cut into wedges and refrigerate until required. Bring poaching liquid to the simmer over medium-high heat, then squeeze excess moisture from gelatine, add to liquid and stir to dissolve. Strain through a fine sieve, set aside to cool slightly, transfer to a 1.5-litre glass bowl, refrigerate until set (6 hours-overnight), then place peaches over jelly.
  • 02
  • For mascarpone cream, whisk ingredients in a bowl to soft peaks, then spoon mixture over peaches.
  • 03
  • To serve, scatter with flaked almonds and serve with pandoro to the side.

Note Pandoro is a yeasted cake available from Italian delicatessens. Prosecco varies in sweetness, so vary the amount of sugar you use in the jelly according to your taste.
