Hi to you all. Hope you are all doing good. Today I am posting another dessert since S. and I both have a big sweet tooth. :-)
Tiramisu is a popular Italian dessert which is one of my all-time favourites. It is however also very heavy, so that one can’t eat too much of it. It is traditionally made with raw egg, which I don’t like to use, so I used whipping cream instead in this recipe. Wishing you all a wonderful day!!!

Serves 8-10 people.


- 2 cups Mascarpone crème
- ¾ cup espresso, cooled
- 1 ½ Tsp. Vanilla essence
- about 300g Italian ladyfinger biscuits
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 4 Tbsp. Amaretto
- 3 Tbsp. Cocoa powder, unsweetened


In a bowl whisk together mascarpone crème, vanilla essence and powdered sugar. Beat the whipping cream until fluffy and stiff and fold into the mascarpone mixture. Cover the bottom of a rectangular form (I used 8x11 inches) with half of the ladyfinger biscuits. Mix espresso with amaretto and drizzle half over the biscuits. Spread half of the mascarpone crème evenly on top. Place the rest of the biscuits on top and drizzle with rest of the espresso mixture. Spread the second half of mascarpone crème evenly on top. Refrigerate for about 2 hours or more to soak. Before serving sift the cocoa powder on top. Serve.
