A recipe for a delicious dessert for Easter: a quick tiramisu with Advocaat (egg-nog) and peach. Fresh and fruity and of course very tasty.
This quick tiramisu with Advocaat (Dutch egg nog) and peach is easy to prepare and ready in just 10 minutes. And because of that it’s so great as a dessert for Easter dinner. For the adults then, because Advocaat contains alcohol. And if you make this recipe for children, you omit the Advocaat and sprinkle extra peach juice on the cake for taste. It’s just as terrific.
Why did I choose a advocaat for this recipe? Because I developed this dessert especially for Easter and somehow in my house Advocaat is part of Easter festivities.
When I was younger, my grandmother always served Advocaat. With whipped cream and a very beautiful small spoon. And I loved it. The creamy taste of the Advocaat combined with the whipped cream. That I love Advocaat is probably a family gene, because my father’s grandfather got it for the first time at the age of 94 !! and after eating it he said to his daughter (my grandmother): “this vanilla pudding is really tasty, just fill me a whole plate.” With us in the family, a Advocaat during the holidays was actually very normal.
But what is Advocaat
Advocaat, as we know it in the Netherlands, is made from egg yolks, brandy, sugar and condensed milk. It’s viscous and you have to wait a long time for it to slip out of your bottle. That’s why you don’t drink it, but you eat it with a spoon (preferably with whipped cream ;-)). The story goes that Advocaat originally is a recipe from the Netherlands Antilles, that founds it’s way to the Netherlands via the VOC, and that originally avocados were mixed with brandy. Because avocados were more difficult to obtain in the Netherlands, but we had enough eggs, these two ingredients were exchanged and from that moment we know this variant. Advocaat, avocado it sounds like a story that could be true, although I can’t imagine how it would taste with avocado as a basis. Maybe I’ll have to try it sometime.
When preparing this tiramisu I use canned peaches. Now you may wonder why, but the simple reason is that it is not a peach season. You can’t purchase them at the moment around here. But that doesn’t matter, because they are also delicious when canned. And we use the juice to flavor the cake.
For the cake I chose frangipane cakes. They absorb the juice well and because they are made with apricots, they combine wonderfully with the peaches.
It’s a good taste!
