Tiramisu recipe and video how to

tiramisu recipeWho just went mmmmm on seeing the word Tiramisu? :)

I do every time, be it on a menu, on a shop shelf or in my own fridge. The trouble is I’ve hunted around my archives for a mouth watering photo to add of a homemade tiramisu and I haven’t got one. It occurred to me that this pudding has never been around along enough to be photographed! (Editor’s note: photo taken 21/11/13)

Did you know the word tiramisu literally translated means pick me up? I would imagine it’s because of the strong Italian coffee used to soak the biscuits in and not for the drop of brandy used to add a bit of flavour :)

Contrary to popular belief this is an incredibly simple recipe to make, it is also very fortunately a cheap one AND above all guaranteed to have everyone, umming and arring over the super deliciousness of such a dessert.

At a family barbecue a couple of weeks ago, I took along all of the necessary ingredients for a Tiramisu recipe, set up my video camera and along with the help of my niece Rosie we made a delicious pudding, have a look just how easy it is.

Just in case you missed it here’s a fool proof recipe and ‘how to’ video for risotto , dead simple to follow and guaranteed to be a table pleaser. So now you have no excuse all we need is for the Great British weather to play ball too.

      Ha ha! I’m glad you’re going to give it a go, you’ll be kicking yourself afterwards at not trying it earlier as it’s so simple. Buon appetito!

    Mari I love your ‘Vlogs’! I have neither the courage nor the equipment to give it a go – you’re very brave. Great-sounding recipe by the way, will definitely have a try at that!

      ha ha, thank you, a lot of practise has got me more used to it these days and the equipment is a simple Kodak camcorder with a tripod – put one on your Christmas list and give it a go x
