Tiramisu - serves 4


  • ½ quantity chocolate genoise sponge. This is quite a small amount to make so I usually make a full mix, fill two 8in rings and freeze one for next time.
  • 6 tsp coffee granules diluted with 1 tbsp boiling water
  • 1 tbsp dark rum
  • 1 tbsp Tia Maria
  • ½ 250g tub mascarpone cheese
  • 125ml double cream
  • 1 dessert spoon icing sugar
  • a few drops of vanilla extract
  • dark chocolate
