Tiramisu

27 10 2007

Apology for the lack of update. I didn’t visit any ramadan bazaar back in Penang as daily routine is sleeping late into evening. Much time was spent watching AFC and Travels & Living (both are rocking channels!) as well as baking at night ;)

One of my baking experiment is tiramisu. Inspired by Bigboysoven, of course. Thank you for the detailed steps but I didn’t follow them thoroughly :P I skipped the sabayon step, something which I can’t even pronounce n.n;; For the first time I actually notice mascarpone cheese are easily available on supermarket shelves. But I substituted with cream cheese because it’s quite expensive. RM18/250g wor…

Tiramisu #1

I went to a baking supply store in Jelutong and guess what?! I found savoiardi sponge finger! n.n (Another term I can’t pronounce). The thought of being able to use the original classic ingredient makes me feel extremely happy~ Moreover I’ve never tried tiramisu that uses this Italian biscuit other than chocolate cake. Costs RM2/packet.

Tiramisu #2

Secondly, the liquid ingredient…

My short-cut version of tiramisu is simply:
1) Dip sponge fingers into coffee liquor & coffee mixture
2) Layer them on loaf tray

Tiramisu #3

3) Cover with a layer cream cheese & whipped cream mixture

Tiramisu #4

4) Sprinkle with chocolate shavings
5) Repeat for another layer

Tiramisu #5

5) Sprinkle with cocoa powder to finish off the top!

Instant yumminess in 20 minutes. How convenient! n.n Chill in the fridge overnight if you can keep your/family members’ hands away (didn’t work in my case).

Tiramisu #6

Hehe. Quite messy as you can see but it tastes soooo good when the alcohol hits in each bite. And the leftover coffee booze makes a delicious ice shake ^.^

Sorry, I don’t have time to look through all my beloved food blogs and leave a comment. During my break I had to do assignments. Final exam is next Thursday and panic mode has set in. 6 subjects yet so little progress in my revision :o Eeek~!!

hahaha! yeah quite easy. I also got a 20 minute Tiramisu recipe, they use sponge cake and finger biscuit : ) i no kah lua la at home. Mascarpone and cream cheese is differrent. If u use cream cheese the flavour wont be as light as mascarpone. Tot got prepacked ones?

Another batch of great tasting dessert and lovely pics! Salute!
