Tiramisu is one of my favourite desserts - and so easy to make!

Adapted from Simple Food by Antonio Carluccio, serves four to six


2 egg yolks
100 grams sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
400 grams mascarpone cheese
80 ml heavy cream
400 ml espresso
4 tablespoons Kahlua
8 to 18 ladyfingers biscuits, depending on size
Cocoa powder, to dust


In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolk, 80 grams of sugar and vanilla extract. Add the mascarpone and cream. Stir until combined.

In a second bowl, mix together the remaining sugar, espresso and liqueur. Dip the biscuits quickly into the liquid mixture and place them into individual bowls or glasses.

Spoon or pipe the cheese mixture over the biscuits. Dust with cocoa powder.

Keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
