Warm strawberries with black sambuca and mascarpone

Australian Gourmet Traveller fast Italian dessert recipe for warm strawberries with black sambucca and mascarpone
William Meppem

The simple treatment of fruit for dessert is an Italian signature. Enhancements range from fruit tossed with citrus juice, to being doused with wine or – common in the region of Emilia-Romagna – dressed with a splash of balsamic vinegar, to the liqueur-flavoured syrup here. 




1.Melt butter in a large frying pan, add strawberries, sprinkle with brown sugar and drizzle sambuca over. Cook, stirring occasionally, over low heat for 2-3 minutes or until strawberries are soft. Divide strawberries and cooking liquid among four heatproof glasses or bowls.
2.Place mascarpone and icing sugar in a small bowl and stir until well combined. Serve warm strawberries with mascarpone passed separately.
