Make your own delicious, classic Italian dessert, Tiramisu, using either store bought, or even better, home made mascarpone. A great gift idea for men and women, The Gift Loft is selling The Mad Millie Italian Cheese Making Kit - easy to use, you can be making your own ricotta, mascarpone, mozzarella and more in no time.
We tested the Italian Cheese Making Kit and made deliciously creamy mascarpone, We then made a scrumptious Tiramisu. See our recipe below - we made a trifle sponge to replace the packet of Lady's Fingers in the recipe. Note that the kit supplies you with a recipe booklet that includes their own Tiramisu Recipe. (See our news blog for more information about the Italian Cheese Making Kit, our own testing of the kit & more recipes using homemade cheese).
Mascarpone (preferably your own Mad Millie homemade mascarpone). Use on its own, or, if too rich, then mix 2 parts mascarpone with 1 part natural yoghurt. We also added lemon zest from 1 lemon & a teaspoon of honey;
Sponge Fingers - sold in supermarkets and specialty stores. We could not find any so we made our own trifle sponge and cut it into finger shaped slices. See trifle sponge recipe, below.
1/4 cup castor sugar
1/4 cup coffee liquor (optional)
1/4 cup espresso coffee (optional, use decaf coffee)
