This classic Italian dessert is made with sponge fingers (also known as ladyfingers or boudoir biscuits) and mascarpone cheese. It can be made in a trifle bowl or a spring form cake tin.
Utterly... amazing. Better than Pizza Express' tiramisu in my opinion. I made this but devided into individual ramkin dishes (6-7). I originally made them for my sister but had one as a "tester" to make sure I wasn't giving her rubbish. Oh my goodness, I had to stop myself eating the remaining dishes. It was a struggle to hand them over and not keep them for myself! Just amazing! - 05 Apr 2012
Amazing! I loved it. It was my New Years' eve treat. The "lady fingers" I found suitable are just Tesco Boudoir biscuits. They absorbed the espresso well after an overnights' refrigeration. (In addition to liqueur, I used 80ml cooled espresso). The longer you refrigerate this dessert, the better it is. Added to favourites, thank you x - 01 Jan 2009
Something else. This was EXCELLENT! I can't even begin to tell you how amazing this Tiramisu is. I have some points to make, 1. it's EASY, 2. It's great that the eggs are cooked, 3. I didn't add any vanilla at all even though I was worried that since there were 6 egg yolks it will have this eggy smell, but it didn't, 4. I only used espresso and no coffee liqueur, 5. I chilled the bowl that I was planning on beating the cream in, 6. I refrigerated the mascarpone/egg mix while I was beating the cream. 7. And this might be helpful, use a cheese cake tin, chill it, and the next morning you can just pop the tiramisu out. It looked beuatiful! I decorated it with some fresh raspberries and slices of strawberries, grated chocolate and dusted cocoa powder. Took it to work and everyone oooed and aahhhed at it. It tasted very very good!!!! By the way, it's important you chill over night. - 18 Jul 2008
