Tiramisu ala Chemist Dad

Tiramisu ala Chemist Dad
At first I thought that Tiramisu is a Japanese dessert only to find out that it was originated in Italy.

Tiramisu (from Italian, spelled tiramisù, [tiɾamiˈsu], meaning "pick me up" or "lift me up") is a popular coffee-flavoured Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers (Italian: Savoiardi, [savoˈjardi]) dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks, egg whites, sugar and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with cocoa. The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of cakes and other desserts. (Source: Wikipedia )

Glad to share my own version.

Ingredients: Graham crackers, all-purpose cream, soft cheese, coffee, cocoa powder

You will need:
1 pack Graham’s Honey Crackers
250 ml all-purpose cream, chilled overnight
120 grams soft cheese (I used Milkana Brand)
¼ cup condensed milk
Cocoa powder unsweetened
Strong Coffee solution (2tbsp of instant coffee dissolved in 1 cup of water)

Here’s how to do it:
For the filling: Whisk all-purpose cream until it doubles its volume. Add condensed milk and soft cheese. Make sure to be blended thoroughly. Set aside

Dip Graham Hney Crackers in coffee solution and lay on your mold. Spread 1/3 of the prepared filling then sift with cocoa powder. Repeat two more times. Chill before serving.

Finished Product

You can add rum on coffee solution and the filling.
You can also use chocolate Graham's Crackers for more chocolatey tiramisu

  7. interesting version of tiramisu ha.by the way, I havent tried milkana yet. How much does it cost? I buy laughing cow cheese and it looks like that

  12. Wow an easy to make version of Tiramisu. Parang gusto kong i-try. I remember making Tiramisu as my first part time work as Research assistant a long time ago. It was delicious because we used mascarpone cheese.
