Torta Paradiso con Mascarpone Recipe

Ingredients

  • 250g butter, jut melted but not oily, plus extra to grease
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 25g cornflour
  • 1 tsp baking flour
To Serve
  • 300g mascarpone cheese
  • 50g caster sugar
  • Few drops of vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tbsp raspberry jam
  • Icing sugar to dust

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 180 C/Gas 4. Line a 25cm shallow round cake tin with baking parchment and grease with a little butter.
  2. Using a balloon whisk, whip the melted butter into the sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly beat in the eggs and vanilla. Gradually sift the flour, cornflour and baking powder together over the mixture, carefully folding it in with the balloon whisk. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and springy to the touch.
  3. Turn out and cool on a wire rack, then cut horizontally into two layers. Beat the mascarpone with the caster sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Spread the jam over the bottom cake layer, then cover with the mascarpone mixture. Top with the other cake layer, sprinkle with icing sugar and serve. A glass of Moscato or Malvasia di Pavia is the perfect complement.
