i took a recipe from baking obsession and sort of improvised my own. when i made it on my 1st attempt using the recipe it took me a long time to reach 190F (88C) not sure why. double-boiling using a skillet sure takes long! so subsequently i boiled the cream in a saucepan without double boiling then add lemon juice when the cream starts bubbling then stir it a few mins more after that. works fine that way for me.
i quickly whipped up some tiramisu from the leftover sponge fingers i had and it was delicious! seriously, homemade and storebought mascarpone are about 99% identical if you ask me so no reason why we should buy them anymore! recipe calls for a cheesecloth but if you don’t hv one you could use paper coffee filters (i got them from daiso at a pack of 40 for 2 bucks). pour the mixture onto the filter, set a strainer and bowl below to catch the whey and you’re good to go.
