We eat to live in this flat. Even though I’m glued to the set this time every year, watching The Great British Bake Off, I’ve never been a fan of standing for hours in the kitchen, and the characters in my books are more likely to make spag or order in pizza than cook anything complicated. So I’m always on the look-out for nice easy recipes.
And this one’s a gem. I’ve had it for years, but when I came across it last week when I was looking for something else, I realised it’s yonks since I made it last. So here you are – Tiramisu made easy.
Serves about 6.
1 packet of sponge fingers (I use the the flat kind) – lay out on the base of your gratin dish.
1.5 dl strong coffee plus 0.5 dl coffee liqueur – pour over sponge fingers.
2 eggs – separate yolks from whites. Beat egg whites until stiff.
60g sugar – add to egg yolks in a separate bowl, beat.
300g mascarpone plus 200g full cream quark – add to egg yolk mixture, mix, then add beaten egg whites.
Pour the mixture over the sponge fingers in the gratin form, chill in fridge. Before serving, dust with chocolate powder.
