While Dr B will happily drink a pint of Guinness I must confess that I much prefer it baked into some form of sweet treat. Sacrilegious I know but there it is. This tart combines some lovely dark and bitter notes with a light, fluffy and sweet mascarpone whipped cream which turns out to be the perfect balance. It was one of those moments where trying each element individually had me worried that my flavours were all slightly off but that first forkful of dessert proved me wrong.
St Patrick’s Day is fast approaching so it seemed like a good time to continue to find ways to add Guinness into dessert. However being 38 weeks pregnant makes this more enjoyable for the people around me, I will have to wait a few more weeks before being able to enjoy desserts like these.
