Tiramisu might sound intimidating but it's easier than baking a cake. All you do is assemble and then enjoy. This is my non-traditional strawberry version.

Serves: 2 

  • 250g (1 punnet) strawberries
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar, divided
  • 250g mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) thickened cream
  • 2 tablespoons coffee-flavoured liqueur
  • 18 sponge finger biscuits
  • 80ml chilled espresso
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting

Preparation:30min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Cut off the tops of the strawberries and slice them. Reserve 2 whole strawberries for the garnish.
  2. In a blender, place a third of the sliced berries and 1 tablespoon of sugar; blend to puree and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine mascarpone cheese, half of the cream, 1 tablespoon of sugar and liqueur; beat with an electric mixer on medium-high until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Place 6 sponge fingers onto a serving plate, brush each with the cold espresso. Spread 1/2 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 bowl combine remaining cream with 2 tablespoons of sugar; beat with electric mixer on medium-high until just whipped, approximately 2 minutes. Spread whipped cream evenly over top layer of sponge fingers. Dust cocoa over whipped cream, garnish with 2 reserved strawberries.
  7. Pour strawberry puree onto two serving plates. Cut tiramisu in half, place onto puree.
