Preparation

  • Step 1 - Pandoro brioche filled with Nutella cream and vanilla cream in the shape of a Christmas tree
    The Nutella cream :
    Pour the cold cream into the bowl (place in the freezer for 15 minutes before use), add the mascarpone and the Nutella.

    The vanilla cream:
    Pour the cold cream into the bowl and add the mascarpone, icing sugar and vanilla.

    Assembly:
    Pipe some cream onto the surface of the star at the base of the pandoro. Spread it all over the centre with a spatula, then poach little balls on the star's rays.

    Place another star slice on top, leaving the rays of the bottom star visible. Poach vanilla cream in the centre and spread well with a spatula. Then poach small balls on the rays.

Observations:

Which pandoro to use?
We used a 2lbs pandoro. It is an Italian brioche traditionally eaten during the Christmas season. There are smaller ones, so don't hesitate to adapt the quantities according to the size of your pandoro.

What to replace the pandoro with?
You can use a classic brioche but you won't be getting the characteristic star shape of the pandoro and you won't be able to make a Christmas tree.

What can I use instead of the vanilla and the Nutella creams?
You can use cookie butter, peanut butter, almond butter or pistachio cream.

How long in advance can you prepare this stuffed pandoro?
You can prepare the creams at most three days in advance. Keep them in an airtight container in the frige before use. We advise you to stuff the pandoro the same day!
