let's play hide-and-seek!

Tiramisu in a glass

Do you know?
Whats the meaning of Tiramisu?

It means “pick me up” or “lift me up” in Italian. Great coffee flavored Italian dessert, a dessert that can’t be resist at all time and it is one of my favorite! With a very strong aroma of coffee liquor and espresso, a layer of soft spongy ladyfingers in between the spreads of light and creamy mascarpone cream, topped with a layer of cocoa powder sprinkles, you would die for it! I like my Tiramisu to be served in a glass, like what the name is, lift me up… lifting the cream and biscuits scoop by scoop in a mouthful, great indulgence.

(serving for 4-6 glasses)

1/2 cup espresso or very strong black coffee
2 tablespoons coffee liquor (kahlua)
1/4 cup granulated sugar (can be reduce)
250 g mascarpone cheese (1 tub)
1 cup whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
12 ladyfingers
cocoa powder for dusting
bits of dark chocolate (chopped)


Prepare Coffee:
Combine espresso with coffee liquor in a small bowl.

Prepare Filling:
Whisk the whipping cream until it reaches stiff peaks. This can be accomplished in a few minutes with an electric mixer.

Combine cheese, sugar and vanila extract into a medium bowl and mix until smooth.

Fold in the whipped cream to the cheese mixture and set aside.

Assemble Tiramisu:
Filled the glass with 1/4 of the cheese mixture, then dip the remaining ladyfingers very quickly into the coffee and arrange a second layer over filling.

Spoon another half of the mascarpone filling over the lady fingers. Sprinkle the bits of dark chocolate over filling. Then dip the remaining ladyfingers very quickly into the coffee and arrange over the layer.

Spoon remaining mascarpone mixture over ladyfingers. Sprinkle again the chocolate bits over the filling. Top up the dessert with the remaining filling. Then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least half a day.

When ready to serve, dust with cocoa powder. Leave out at room temperature about 10 minutes before consuming.

Enjoy the recipe! cook & smile.
