  • 400 g Apples
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 Pinches Ground cinnamon
  • 150 g Speculaas
  • 150 ml Espresso cooled
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 50 g Sugar
  • 500 g Mascarpone
  • 250 g Quark
  • 2 tsp Ground cinnamon


  • Melt the sugar (2 tablespoons) in a pan without fat until a light caramel has formed. Peel, quarter and core the apples and cut into small pieces. Add the apples, lemon juice and cinnamon. Let simmer over a low heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Place the speculoos on a kitchen towel and roughly chop. Beat egg yolks with sugar in a bowl for at least 2 minutes until frothy. Mix in the mascapone and quark with a whisk.
  • Speculatius crumbs: first distribute 1 tablespoon in each of 4 glasses (300 ml), then distribute 1 tablespoon espress on top of each, then add 1 tablespoon of apple compote each time. With 1 tablespoon of mascapone cream, crumbs soaked in espresso, layered apple cubes and cover with the rest of the cream, smooth out.
  • Before serving, sprinkle a Christmas motif with cinnamon on the surface.
