Description

A smart and tasty way to repurpose leftover colomba (Easter) cake, this recipe calls for soaking the cake in liqueur and milk before adding ricotta and cinnamon. Once they're shaped into walnut-sized balls, the boozy orbs are coated in cocoa and garnished with a slice of fresh strawberry. They'll need a few hours in the refrigerator to firm up before indulging so plan to make them in advance.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cake (colomba)
  • 5 tablespoons liqueur
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 100 grams ricotta cheese
  • ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa (bittersweet, powdered)
  • cocoa (Bittersweet, powdered)
  • strawberries

Directions

  1. Cut the almonds off the top of the cake and cut the cake into small pieces. Soak the cake with the liqueur and a few tablespoons of milk, and work it together with your hands. The mixture should be firm and uniform.
  2. Add the ricotta cheese, a few tablespoons of cocoa, and a pinch of cinnamon.
  3. Chill the mixture for approximately 1 hour to set.
  4. Shape the mixture into balls the size of a walnut and coat them in the powdered cocoa.
  5. Garnish the top with a piece of strawberry, insert a colored toothpick into the truffle, place them in small muffin liners and refrigerate again for a few hours
