Last year for father’s day we gave the Italian a couple of Raspberry bushes and raspberries they are producing.  So I decided to make a moist Mascarpone Cake and serve it with a creamy Raspberry Topping.

To tell the truth I really wanted a thicker cream but as it turned out this Raspberry Cream was really good.  If you want a thicker sauce then just add less raspberries.

What is Mascarpone Cheese?

Mascarpone is a cheese made from the processing of cream and citric acid (for example lemon juice), only two ingredients to make this creamy delicious cheese.  Mascarpone originated from the Region of Lombardy, which is in the North of Italy.

I love it and I try to use it as much as possible in my desserts.  I find the taste more delicate and tastier than cream cheese.
