Easy Tiramisu

    1 hour 15 min

    Yummiest dessert ever! And very easy to make. This is my family's favourite. One serving is not enough! Believe me! Don't substitute the mascarpone with double cream. There is no tiramisu without mascarpone. And use the best quality coffee.

    Used different ingredients. In the main I stuck to the recipe, but added some coffee liquer to the coffee mix (Tesco's own coffee liquer works really well). I also dipped the first layer of lady fingers in coffee, then poured some more over it (until it couldn't absorb anymore), this made it a little softer. No complaints though, great recipe, thanks.  -  26 Aug 2010


    I found this really easy and very, very tasty. Even my fussy 16 year old liked this as did neighbours who don't like this type of pudding. Highly recommended. Thanks.  -  26 Aug 2010


    Great recipe and so easy. I used half coffee half baileys and added a whisked egg white to the mascarpone to lighten it but this is a good solid recipe.  -  16 Feb 2014
