Frank’s prunes and mascarpone is an enormous sleeper when it comes to desserts. Cast aside your preconceptions about prunes and give this sublime and incredibly easy dessert a try. Thank you to the two Brooklyn chefs named Frankie for creating this dish, serving it at their restaurants and sharing the recipe with the world.
I reduce the sugar from the original recipe because I like to emphasize the savory aspect to this dessert and think the prunes are sweet enough themselves. I also find I cook the prunes about 15 minutes longer than the original recipe to achieve the sticky syrup viscosity I like. Total time will depend on your pot, heat source and personal preference.
