Tiramisu is now so internationally well known that it can be found absolutely everywhere. But this classic MOF MOF (Minimum of Fuss, Maximum of Flavour) recipe, which I created 30 years ago, is both simple and delicious. Try it, and you will discover that you instantly become a dessert maker!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 egg yolks
100g caster sugar
a few drops good vanilla essence
400g mascarpone cheese
80ml single cream
milk, if needed
400ml strong espresso coffee
4 tablespoons kahlua or tia maria
18 savoyard biscuits
bitter cocoa powder, to dust

Method

  1. In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks, 80 g of the caster sugar and the vanilla essence together. In a second larger bowl, mix the mascarpone with the cream to make it thinner. Mix the mascarpone with the egg. Should the mixture be too dense, add a few drops of milk.
  2. Mix the coffee, chosen liqueur and remaining caster sugar together in a third bowl. Dip the biscuits briefly into the coffee (don’t let them absorb too much liquid) and use to line 4 individual ramekins, cutting them in half if necessary to fit. Put in a layer of the mascarpone mixture, then top with some more biscuits, finishing with mascarpone and filling the ramekins to the top. Dust the tops with a little cocoa powder and chill until ready to serve.
