Pineapple tiramisu

    4 hours 20 min

    This dessert is cool, refreshing and absolutely delicious! I use tinned pineapple, and I can make this early in the day, or even better, I'll prepare it the night before. It needs to chill for at least 4 hours before serving.

    1. Beat the egg whites until very stiff; set aside. Beat the egg yolks with the caster sugar until pale and smooth. Beat the mascarpone into the egg yolk mixture, then gently fold in the beaten egg whites; set aside.
    2. Remove the pineapple slices from the tin, reserving the juice, and drain on kitchen paper. Cut into pieces.
    3. Cut the sponge fingers into 2 or 3 pieces each, then dip briefly into the pineapple juice.
    4. Place a layer of biscuits into 4 to 6 individual dessert glasses, then place a few pieces of pineapple on top and cover with a layer of the mascarpone mixture. Repeat once. Sprinkle generously with cocoa powder, and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours before serving.

    I followed the recipe exactly, pleasant texture and flavour, will make it again but will add either ginger or cinnamon to the sugar,cheese and egg mixture to add more interest.  -  06 Feb 2017
