Quick and Easy Tiramisu

If you need a quick and easy dessert that will "pick up" any meal try my delicious Quick and Easy Tiramisu. It is really quick and easy to put together and everyone will think you spend hours making it! You can make it in individual portions (as I have in this one) or in a large dish. It is perfectly light and a great end to a good meal.


100 ml Strong Espresso Coffee
75g Soft Brown Sugar
50 ml Coffee Liqueur or Brandy
200g Sponge Finger Biscuits (Lady Fingers)
400g Ready made Custard
250g Mascarpone Cheese
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
50g Plain dark chocolate finely chopped

Make your espresso. Mix coffee with half of the Brown Sugar and Coffee Liqueur or Brandy.
Toss your Sponge Fingers in the mixture. Not too long as you don't want them to be soggy!
Place Sponge Fingers into your dish.
Beat the Custard, Mascarpone, rest of Brown Sugar and Vanilla together till nice and fluffy.
Spoon over the Sponge Fingers.
If you are using a large dish you will repeat the above two steps so that there is a layer of Sponge Fingers and a layer of custard mixture, a layer of Sponge Fingers and a layer of custard mixture.
If you use individual glasses, you will only need one layer.
Top with finely chopped dark chocolate.
Chill in the fridge for about an hour before serving.
