I know you will say, “What a long recipe! ^^”, well, it’s long, haha.
Actually when I see the theme of this month “Chicken Farm Baker’s Project # 28 : Tiramisu in my style”, I started thinking ^^ “What kinds of the Tiramisu that I really want to try?”.
You can see that I really love Tiramisu, very very much, I make it again and again, so, the traditional Tiramisu is the best for me. But when I got this project, I have to think about it in a new way. Anyway, it’s not hard for me because there are so many possibility to create by combining this delicious cream with anything else.
And for me I think that I really want to mix this cream with the Oreo and coffee mousse, well, it’s a classic with a little twist. The Oreo is one of my favorite, and coffee is my beloved flavor too, I think they will be great together in one cup with the delicious mascarpone cream. But for me, I always want to try something, so I choose to make the crumbs by myself. It’s very easy to make and the taste is more deep (it’s very chocolately haha), and adding the meringue on top balance everything in the cup.
So I give this recipe as a suggestion, you can do exactly the same as me or you can go on the short-cut that I will tell you now and create this dessert a lot faster than me, ^^. Because you can use the Oreo and store-bought meringue, so it will left you to make only 2 kinds of cream, and a chocolate disk. But for the chocolate disk, it’s great for presentation, because it will divide the chocolate crumbs layers with the mascarpone cream, so you can skip it without having any problem with the taste of the dessert.
Now that you know the express way to this delicious dessert, don’t just sit and read my blog, ^-^, let’s go to the kitchen, and create this Tiramisu at home and yes a lot faster than me.
Note on flavor: For this dessert I have to make a note for you, so that you can create the dessert that you will love ^^.
1. If you love the coffee flavor you just follow the amount of the instant coffee that I give you, but if you just want a less bitter flavor, reduce the instant coffee to 6g, and reduce the sugar to 10g.
2. The meringue is not for the presentation only, it makes the dessert taste better, so please adding it in yours.
3. Let the dessert rest for 12-24 hours for the more delicious dessert.
