Tiramisu with Baileys Irish Cream recipe

I promised you guys a Tiramisu and here it is. I have made a few substitutions so it’s not your usual authentic Italian recipe, look away now if you like brandy in your puddings. I went a bit cheap and used instant hot chocolate instead of cocoa powder (because I didn’t have any) What would Nigella say?! I don’t think she’d mind as it turned out delicious regardless, I did add a bit of Green & Blacks dark chocolate just to posh it up a bit!

Ingredients

  • teaspoons instant espresso powder dissolved in 350ml / 1½ cups water (cooled)
  • 250 ml baileys 
  • 2 packets (400g) savoiardi biscuits 
  • large eggs 
  • 75 grams caster sugar 
  • 500 grams mascarpone cheese 
  • 2 ½ teaspoons instant hot chocolate powder
  • 2 teaspoons grated dark chocolate to decorate

Method

  • mix the coffee with 175ml of the baileys and add to a bowl big enough to dip the savoiardi biscuits in.
  • dip the biscuits into the liquid don’t leave them to soak and dip them one at a time or they will go all soggy.
  • add a layer of biscuits to the bottom of a medium sized dish
  • separate the eggs setting the two yolks aside and keeping just one of the whites for later
  • whisk the egg yolks with the caster sugar until thick and pale yellow
  • whisk the baileys and mascarpone into the egg mixture until thick and creamy
  • whisk the egg white until it is thick and frothy and then fold this into the creamy mixture by hand
  • add a layer of the cream to the top of the saviardi biscuits and repeat with another layer of dipped biscuits and top off with cream.
  • leave to set in the fridge, overnight is best.
  • dust with the chocolate powder and sprinkle grated chocolate over to decorate

    YUM! This looks and sounds amazing! And the fact that it has baileys in it means that the kids can’t have any, more for us adults!

    Two things I’ve been missing most during pregnancy – alcohol and amazing desserts like this that feature raw egg. This fab recipe is on my wish list (along with sushi and very runny cheese) once the baby arrives.
