My eldest Grandson, aged 10, always walks through our front door and immediately say ‘What are we making today.’ This could be something foodie or crafty.
So he was amazed when I said we were going to make a Tiramisu. He made a fab job. Here is our recipe.
1/2 cup cold black coffee
2 1/2 oz caster sugar
1/2 pint double cream
2 small madeira cake slabs
2oz grated dark chocolate
Put some coffee liqueur into the cold coffee. stir well. Slice the cake thinly and lay one layer on the bottom of a dish or bowl. Drizzle over some of the liqueur mix.
In a large bowl and using an electric whisk combine the eggs and caster sugar until think and light. I know when it is done as you can, with the whisks, drizzle your initial onto the top of the mixture. In a separate bowl put in the marscapone and a little of the egg mix. Stir then fold in the rest. Add the cream.
Over the first layer of cake add a layer of the cream mix. Then repeat with the cake slices, liqueur and cream mix until the dish or bowl is full, finishing on a cream layer.
Sprinkle with the grated chocolate and place into a fridge to chill for at least 4 hours.
My grandson really enjoyed making this. A Chef in the making.
Hope you enjoy my recipe as much as we did. This pudding did not last very long.
