Tiramisu with a sweet surprise

Tiramisu is a classic pick me up desert which has been my all time favourite desert. It can be done under a £5 budget to serve 12 people. May be a little over ;) but I really, really tried and made the effort to search for the best deal in the supermarket to keep this in the £5 budget. As the festive season is ahead of us, we are always after some quick but delicious ideas to serve plenty in the house. I like adding, or changing tiny bit the classic recipes to surprise my guest. This time, I added raspberries in it which fit in perfectly with the creamy taste of the mascarpone and the chocolate.

So there you go The ingredients:

6 eggs separated
6 spoons of sugar
2 cups of strong coffee
2 packets of sponge fingers
400g of mascarpone cheese
2 spoon full of cacao powder

Separate the eggs. Whisk together the egg yolks and the sugar until thick and creamy,
In another really clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Add the mascarpone cheese to the yolk mixture and stir well until smooth and thick.
Gently fold the whisked egg whites into the cheese - egg yolk mixture.

Dip the sponge fingers into coffee and place them on your dish pour half of the mixture
over the biscuits. Sprinkle cacao powder and place the raspberries.
and repeat with the mixture and cacao and cover the dish with cling film and refrigerate
for min of four hours.

Et voila bon appetite! see you next time with a Turkish vegetarian dish Enjoy the good food.
