EGG-LESS TIRAMISU

The much awaited Tiramisu recipe is here. I will be preparing the egg-less version. The actual recipe calls for separated eggs beaten and then combined and then mixing with mascaporne cheese... As there is no cooking eggs process involved, I am not so fond of this method... So I prepared without eggs, involving custard prepared from custard powder. The steps are easy if you have all the contents handy. It only requires sponge biscuits, the mascaporne-custard mixture, some strong coffee and cocoa for dusting... And then all you need to do is assembling...
While you prepare the filling , see to that the cheese is at room temperature, so that mixing becomes a lot easier and the filling looks smooth.




Sponge finger biscuits- This forms the base of Tiramisu
Mascaporne cheese- one of  the main ingredients in Tiramisu
