Cheat me, if you can!


“Eat veggies and fruit”, they say. “It’s good for you”. Well… if you want me to eat more fruit, you have to make a little effort: you have to hide it, if it’s not apples.

For example, in a cake. (no, we won’t talk about the benefits of fruit and about drawbacks of the other cake-ingredients. I mean, sugar is necessary to get energy!!)

And as I’ve nearly missed the strawberry-season, I made a quick little dessert this week-end: some oven-strawberry-mascarpone-packages. The recipe was found in the book “Chakall kocht”.

The recipe asks for about the half amounts of what I’ve made, but I didn’t want to keep any strawberries (they wouldn’t have been hidden in a dessert or a cake) and of the mascarpone. You see – the recipe will be a very light dessert. (Whereelse should the membranes of your cells get the fat of which they’re made of?)

Pro for this recipe: It’s quick. And easy. Not many ingredients.

Let’s start! For 4 people (or for 2 who want to eat 2 desserts each), you need:

about 400 g strawberries (orignial recipe: 200)

about 200g mascarpone (orginial recipe: 100)

juice of 1/2-1 lemon (orinial recipe: 1/2)
1-2 tsp honey (original recipe: 50 g)

aluminium foil.

Preheat the oven (160°C). Wash the strawberries. Cut four large pieces of aluminium foil and fold in halves. Form a little bowl with the foil – remember, the objective is to make packages later. Cut the strawberries into halves, put them in the alu-bowls. Mix honey and lemon juice, drizzle this mix over the strawberries. Fold small packages with the aluminium foil. Bake for about 10 minutes.

Then get the packages out of the oven, open the packages a little bit and spoon in the mascarpone. Put back into the oven for another 5-10 minutes until slightly browned.
