This classic Italian tiramisu is the only recipe you'll ever need! Luscious mascarpone cheese layered with espresso-soaked sponge fingers, with a touch of cognac or brandy.

A traditional, easy and delicious Italian pud. I had a difficult time finding a good and easy recipe on the internet, so I made up my own recipe. It tastes just like the panna cotta served in Italy. This keeps well for several days in the refrigerator.

Yes, you can buy good sponge fingers so easily, but this homemade sponge finger recipe is practically just as easy as running to the shop. Have a go at making your own sponge fingers for trifles or tiramisu.

This is such an easy, but beautiful dessert to serve for company in the summer when fresh berries are in season. Gelatine leaves work better, but powdered gelatine is easier to find generally.
