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.

Serves: 2 

  • 600g fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup thickened cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 18 ready made sponge finger or savoiardi biscuits
  • 1/3 cup chilled coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa

Preparation:40min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  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.
