Tiramisu – Mango, oranges and pomegranate


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. 

Ingredients: 

  • 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
Prep - Tiramisu

Key Ingredients for Tiramisu

 

Method: 

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!

  1. this is something new.. I always knew Tiramisu as a “coffee flavored soft pastry/cake.
    Never knew it came in fruity versions as well..

  2. It looks delicious!
    Showing all the ingredients together in a pic is a very user-friendly idea 🙂

  3. Hi Ritika, thats’s how the current version is popular these days, with coffee flavoured liquer..

    In the original recipe, there was no liquor as the cake as the cake was originally aimed at children and the elderly.

    This is another take eon the same as seasonal fruits go very well with the mascarpone and cream. Hope you try it and let me know how it turns out!

    1. I tired this yesterday… but sadly it didnt turn out that good. 😦
      though entirely my fault… i didnt keep the measure the ingredients very strictly..
      the cream was a bit over in quantity and fruits less..

      Also.. when i kept it in freezer.. the fruits froze.. but the cream didnt set. ?? (i used the tinned mixed fruit)

      1. aw 😦 you know, you can try pureeing the fruits into a thick sauce and mix into the mascarpone as well.
        Hope it turns out better next time 🙂

  4. Thanks Kanika, This is a no fuss recipe so would suggest you to def try. Prefarably use canned fruit or if it is fresh, the fruit should be sweet and not sweet-sour 🙂
