Tiramisu means “pick me up” and is one of my all time favourite desserts! Here’s an easy recipe to make it :
What you need:
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
150ml strong coffee or espresso
150ml single cream
4 tablespoons icing sugar
16 sponge fingers
Cocoa powder for decoration
How to make it:
1. Whisk the mascarpone with the vanilla and 50ml coffee till everything is thoroughly mixed together. Then whisk the cream with the icing sugar until smooth, then pour in the mascarpone mix to this.
2. Pour the remaining coffee into a bowl and dip sponge fingers one at a time in to the coffee.
3. Line a rectangular glass tray or a bowl with the sponge fingers. If you need to you can break them in half to make them fit. Spoon the mascarpone mix in until you reach the top of the glass. Refrigerate for 20 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse.
4. Remove the tiramisu from the fridge. Take the chocolate bar and grate a little chocolate over the top of each tiramisu. Finally, dust with sifted cocoa powder and serve 🙂
