“I want to have a good body, but not as much as I want dessert.” - Jason Love

We had some people around to lunch today and as time was short, we had to make a dessert very quickly. Thankfully all of the ingredients for this one were on hand, so dessert materialised almost immediately we thought of it this morning. It was all nice and chilled by lunchtime and everyone ate their fill and there was not a smidgeon left!

Tiramisù Cups
1 shot of espresso coffee
3 tbsp coffee liqueur
75 mL cold milk
250g mascarpone cheese
100g condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
6 sponge fingers
1 tbsp cocoa powder

Mix the coffee, the coffee liqueur and 75mL milk in a shallow dish and set aside.
Make the cream layer by beating the softened mascarpone, condensed milk and vanilla extract with an electric whisk until thick and smooth.
Break the sponge fingers into two or three pieces and soak in the coffee mixture for a few seconds (don’t overdo it as they will disintegrate).
Put a few bits of the sponge in the bottom of sundae glasses and top with the cream. Sift over the cocoa and chill for at least 1 hr before serving.

  1. Not too tricky to make and .. the end results look blissful.
    The only ingredient I would have to go and buy for a special occasion would be the mascarpone cheese.
