Quick Tiramisu Trifle

Tiramisu is definitely a dessert you will fall for the first time. Tiramisu is an Italian dessert. It literally means "pick me up" or "lift me up", name truly justify the taste of this finger licking recipe. It is made of ladyfingers (Italian: Savoiardi) dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone cheese, and flavored with Marsala wine and cocoa. The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of puddings, cakes and other desserts. Today I am trying to make this tiramisu in form of a trifle. This recipe is real quick and without any raw egg.



Make:                              4 small trifle glasses
Preparation time:              20 minutes (cooling additional)

Ingredient:

Ladyfingers (Savoiardi):               12 fingers
Instant coffee powder:                  2 tablespoon
Hot water:                                    1 cup
Marsala wine:                               2 tablespoon
Mascarpone cheese:                     200 grams
Heavy cream:                               100 grams
Vanilla sugar:                                1 1/2 tablespoon
Sugar:                                          2 tablespoon
Cocoa powder for dusting


Method:

1) Mix hot water, coffee powder, sugar and Marsala wine in a large bowl. Let it cool.
2) Whip cream until soft peak. Add mascarpone and vanilla sugar and continue whipping until smooth. Add the 1 tbsp coffee mixture to the whipped cream and cheese and mix well to give that additional flavour.
3) Take the serving glass and starting layering up the trifle. Break the ladyfinger into half and soak it in the warm coffee mixture for about 5 second.
4) Put the soaked mixture at the base of the serving glass layer it with mascarpone cheese mixture. Again put a layer of soaked lady fingers and top it up with mascarpone.
5) Insert a dry ladyfinger at the side of the glass as garnish.
6) Powder some cocoa on the top generously and store it in fridge for cooling until served.
