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