Today we are celebrating my grandma's birthday. I decided to make a simple Tiramisu cake for her since her favourite is coffee & cheese!

My sister was here too... she was helping me for this!!!

Here's the simple recipe :

  • 500g mascarpone cheese
  • 2.5 tbsps icing sugar
  • 2 tbsps coffee syrup
  • 1 tbsp Rum
  • 400g whipping cream ( whipped )
  • 15 ladyfinger biscuits
  • 1 slice of 10" chocolate sponge cake

Coffee syrup :

  • 2 tbsps coffee granules
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup boiled water
  • 2 tbsps Kahlua

  1. Mix mascarpone cheese & icing sugar until well blended. Add in Rum & coffee syrup.
  2. Fold in whipping cream.
  3. Place sponge cake into a 10-in loose base pan. Brush some coffee syrup on top.
  4. Spread 1/2 of the cheese mixture on top.
  5. Dip the ladyfinger biscuits into the coffee syrup & arrange a layer on top.
  6. Cover the remaining mascarpone mixture.
  7. Refrigerate for at least three hours, sprinkled with cocoa powder & serve cold !

No coffee & alcohol for kids.. so we make a 2 layers cake with mascarpone + whipping cream decorated with strawberries for them!!! hehee....

We had a fabulous dinner & a wonderful cake :D Yummy..... CHEERS!!!
