This Tiramisu recipe is not too dissimilar from alot of  cheesecake recipes I have encountered before, but i make no pretence - it is VERY indulgent. The following recipe is meant for a standard cake tin size, so if you are going to make larger ones then by all means adjust the recipe accordingly.

This recipe is going to take a bit of time, so give it plenty of love. You wont be disappointed with the time spent..

For the sponge base: (you'll need three of these)

(makes 1)

75g self raising flour
1 egg
75g caster sugar
75g butter

Cream butter & sugar, then add the egg. Add the flour (sieved) bit by bit. baked at 180C until when pierced with a knife, the knife comes out clean. When the sponge bases are made, soak them in coffee for an hour or so.

For the mix:

4 Egg yolks
4 tablespoons of sugar
4 table spoons of Vanilla sugar
1 kilo of marscarpone cheese
1 espresso sized cup of strong mocha coffee
2 teaspoons of coffee liquor (tia maria / kahlua)
Cocoa powder


Sabyon the sugars and egg yolks till thick

Add the coffee and the liquor

Beat in the Marscarpone cheese
