Tiramisu is a very popular Italian dessert which means “pick me up”. This dessert just melts in your mouth the moment you take your first bite. I’ve been a fan of it for more than a decade now and remember the first time I had it at Anushka’s 1st birthday party. Since then, I’d been on a look out for this heaven like sweetness and with my share of the good, bad and ugly, I tasted some horrid tiramisu which were hot instead of being chilled.
Not letting my bad experiences affect my liking love for it, I continued my search for a place to have some good tiramisu. Yes, I found a few good places to have it but I realized that making the same would such good fun. So, this is new challenge.
- 50 g Mascarpone cheese
- 200g Double Cream
- 5 tbsp Icing sugar
- vanilla Essence
- Peeled and deseeded oranges, Mangoes, pomegranate- diced into small cubes
- 100 g digestive cookies
- 20 g butter
Crumble the digestive biscuits using a food processor and rub in the butter. Taking your serving dish, layer the cookie crumble as the base and push it down to make it firm. Keep it in the freezer for 30 mins.
Combine the cream and vanilla, sugar in a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric hand mixer or immersion blender until the mixture holds stiff peaks. Set aside.
Take the mascarpone cheese in a bowl and beat it to break the lumps to make it soft. Now fold in the whipped cream.
Take the serving dish out of the freezer and add the first layer of mangoes and oranges. Now add a layer of the whipped cream and cheese topped with pomegranate. Repeat the layers one after the other and move the serving dish back to the freezer for 3-4 hours or preferably overnight.
When serving, take the tiramisu out and shave some milk chocolate over the top using a potato peeler. This is my new take on the ever popular Italian dessert Tiramisu!
