Dessert Recipe – Tiramisu

Published January 20, 2010 by Mary Jane

Hello again…yes, I’ve decided to post another dessert recipe that’s so simple even a 10 year old can make it…so it’s one of the popular dessert that I order when I go out for coffee yup that’s right it’s Tiramisu…with no baking so you can’t hurt yourself….anyways, as I was saying before I’m not very good at baking so I’m always after something that’s quick and easy to make for dessert so I went through my piles and piles of dessert cook book and located the most simple tiramisu recipe and I made it for our christmas dinner and it’s delicious.. here it is…


500g mascarpone cheese
2 table spoon of caster sugar
400mls freshly brewed strong coffee, cooled
2 table spoon of either kahlua or brandy
1 packet of sponge fingers biscuits

1. Beat the mascarpone and caster sugar in a medium mixing bowl with electric beaters until it forms a soft peak
2. Combine the coffee and Kahlua or brandy in a large bowl. Dip 1/2 of the sponge biscuits quickly into the coffee mixture and then arrange over the base of a deep serving dish. Spread 1/2 of the mascarpone mixture evenly over the sponge fingers.
3. Dip the remaining sponge fingers into the coffee mixture and then arrange in a single layer over the mascarpone layer. Finish with a layer of the remaining mascarpone mixutre. cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight
4. When you serve the tiramisu you can garnish with some cherries on top or some grated dark chocolates or if you are lazy like me sift some cocoa powder on it… 🙂
