It's Christmas week, meaning all we want to be thinking about right now is the delicious festive food we're going to be enjoying over the coming days. If you're still on the hunt for a Christmas dessert with a twist to wow loved ones then Nigella Lawson's latest recipe on Instagram is well worth checking out.

The cooking guru shared a photograph of her stunning Italian Christmas Pudding Cake – and we're officially in love.

Made with two of our very favourite Italian treats – panettone and mascarpone – the show-stopping dessert sounds absolutely delicious, so we weren't surprised to see it rack up thousands of likes and admiring comments from Nigella fans.

Oh, and did we mention it's a no-cook recipe that Nigella calls "easy to assemble"? Yes, we are sold.

Chatting about the stunning festive cake, Nigella wrote: "#RecipeOfTheDay is what I call Italian Christmas Pudding Cake, although it’s actually Italian only in the sense that it’s made with panettone and mascarpone!

"It’s an easy, no-cook assembly job that’s ludicrously delicious as well as rapturously beautiful. And, by the way, you can replace the Tuaca (a British liqueur that tastes rather of panettone) with rum – or, indeed, other booze of your choice – and add more chocolate chips and pistachios if you can’t get the marrons glacés."

We don't know about you but we're rushing out to buy the ingredients immediately.
