Classic Strawberry Tiramisu

    50 minutes

    This tiramisu is a little different in that it contains a layer of strawberry puree and no raw eggs. Perfect for a special occasion, this makes enough for two large portions.

    1. Cut off the tops of the strawberries and slice the strawberries. Reserve 2 large whole strawberries for decoration.
    2. In a blender, place 2 cups sliced strawberries and 2 tablespoons sugar; blend to puree and set aside.
    3. In a medium bowl, combine mascarpone cheese, 1/4 cup cream, 1/4 cup sugar, and liqueur; beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until thickened.
    4. Place 6 biscuits on a serving plate and brush each with approximately 1 teaspoon cold espresso coffee. Spread or pipe out 1/2 of the cheese mixture over the sponge fingers, and layer with half of the sliced strawberries.
    5. Repeat with the next 6 sponge fingers, espresso, remaining cheese mixture, and sliced strawberries; top with remaining 6 sponge fingers.
    6. In a small mixing bowl, combine remaining cream with 2 tablespoons sugar; beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed to soft peaks, approximately 1 minute. Spread cream evenly over top layer of ladyfingers.
    7. Dust over cocoa and decorate with 2 reserved strawberries. Chill until required.
    8. Pour strawberry puree onto two serving plates. Cut tiramisu in half, and place onto puree.

    Just to inform you that the previous review by vilanty doesn't adhere to this recipe. What has donuts and potatoes got to do with this wonderful dessert?  -  30 Nov 2012


    Used different ingredients. example .. making donuts are usually made from wheat flour only, can be added or replaced with the basic ingredients of potatoes.  -  09 May 2010


    The result is very good but only if you make an adjustment. The recipe calls for one pint of strawberries then has you puree 2 cups (the whole pint)and still have strawberries left over to put between layers. Instead, puree one cup of strawberries and use the remaining cup to put between layers.  -  18 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
