    This is a deliciously different cheesecake recipe. Just before serving, grate some dark chocolate on the top for a more professional look.

    This recipe is great as it's refreshing also it can be made two days ahead so nice for dinner parties. It's easy to make this dairy free, but you can also use regular milk if allergies aren't an issue.

    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.

    This Italian-inspired ice cream is incredibly rich, creamy and chocolately. It's also lower in fat than the average ice cream, egg-free and requires no ice cream maker.

    This delectable version of the popular Italian dessert includes the traditional sponge biscuits soaked in coffee and liqueur for the base, but rather than a rich topping there is a light and creamy mixture of sweetened ricotta cheese and Greek-style yogurt. A sprinkling of grated dark chocolate is the finishing touch.

    You'll be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't love tiramisu. This tiramisu recipe is perfect for a party - served in individual pots, they can be made well in advance of serving.

    A classic tiramisu recipe that never fails to please. Making tiramisu yourself is a cinch - just be careful not to soak the sponge fingers too much in the espresso, otherwise the tiramisu will be too mushy.
