Well here we are the end of another week, I hope you have had a good one. Are you freinds over this weekend or perhaps you just fancy a creamy dreamy dessert, Tiramisu, a little Italian dessert whatever your reason for making this I know you will enjoy it.


So here goes this is what you will need and how to make your Tiramisu.

  • Sliced or crumbled cake or some sponge fingers (you will need sufficient to make two layers on your chosen bowl)
  • 200g Mascarpone Cheese ( cream cheese will do if you cannot find Mascarpone)
  • 150ml Double Cream
  • Cold strong coffee
  • 100g coarsley grated or finely chopped Dark Chocoloate
  1. Place your cake on the bottom of your bowl, and then pour over sufficient coffee to wet the cake ensure it is all covered and let it soak
  2. To a mixing bowl add your cream and cheese, mix until they are just becoming thick add a little of the coffee and mix again
  3. Now spread half the cream mix ontop of the sponge and sprinkle a 1/2 of your chocolate
  4. Add the next layer of sponge and wet the sponge with coffee, add the 2nd layer of cream and spread over the sponge
  5. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate on top
  6. Leave in the fridge for about 60minutes before serving

An easy dessert that takes about 20 minutes to prepare but looks and tastes gorgeous.


What is your favourite dessert?

If I am honest I made this one day because a cake I had made didn’t turn out quite as planned and I didn’t have time and and and !! anyway I threw it down on the work surface in disgust and there it stayed until I had been for a walk with the dog. When I came back a little calmer it seemed a shame to throw the cake away so . . . what could I make and there we are Katie’s Tiramisu came to be. So you see sometimes it is good to get annoyed!!

If you want to make a cake for the base try the egg free chocolate cake, this makes a great layer.


Why the Sunflower, well I love them, and this one I thought had a rather lovely chocolate looking centre!!

Take care and thank you for reading, let me know how it goes

Till next time
