Friday Recipe: Berry Tiramisu

Simple but stunning Berry Tiramisu - my favourite dessert 
Usually I'm not a dessert kind of gal. Give me a cheese board any time - it's the perfect way to finish off a meal, especially if served with some Malbec or Rioja. But my husband is a celebrity chef and Italian - and insists on something sweet at the end of a special three or four course dinner. Recently, he served us these. They're a new, fruity take on a tiramisu and delicious. Now he's taught me how to make them and they're a family favourite. They're so easy to make but look delicious so they're the perfect way to impress friends at a dinner party or to give your family a treat. Enjoy!

Prep time 10 minutes
Refrigeration time 2 hours
Serves 4

6 egg yolks
3 tbsp sugar
450g mascarpone cheese
1 1/2 cups strong espresso coffee, cooled
Berries of your choice, to garnish

Beat egg yolks and sugar together in your food processor’s mixing bowl for about 5 minutes or until thick and pale.

Add the mascarpone and beat again until smooth.

Transfer to a container, cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least two hours.

When ready to serve, pour the espresso into four stem glasses or dessert bowls.

Spoon the mascarpone mixture on top and garnish with berries.
