Absolutely delicious - thanks John and Wendy for this recipe.
It’s not just pasta for which we have to thank the Italians. Their sensational Tirumisu – literally “pick-me-up” – is one of the world’s best desserts. A delicious combination of sponge layer and creamy filling, flavoured with coffee and Marsala, Tiramisu should not be missed!
In a mixing bowl beat together condensed milk and mascarpone or cream cheese.
Mix together Marsala wine or brandy with coffee in a shallow bowl.
Take one sponge finger at a time and dip it in the coffee mixture, holding it in for a few seconds but taking care not to make the biscuits soggy.
Line a trifle dish with a layer of sponge fingers. Spoon over half the creamy mixture. Sift over a generous dusting of cocoa. Repeat
Finish with a layer of cocoa, then chill well before serving.
Tried making this in France and it was delicious - couldn't get any evaporated milk so used cream instead plus cocoa powder wasn't easy to find so I grated fresh dark chocolate over the top. Yummy!
