This recipe is quite same as much tiramisu recipe, but it is more like individual serving and made in a beautiful trifle glass or any stem glasses. I loved thiss version more than that, because it looked more cute and photogenic.
The cool thing about this trifle is, it is easily portable. If you are having a picnic, you can assemble this in jam jars, pop a lid, refrigerate it overnight, now you can take them where ever you need to and it is very handy as well. I learnt this trick on youtube jam jar cake ideas..
Another great thing this, unlike other tiramisu which takes lots of hours to set, this one sets in a hour or a couple of hours. So you can enjoy it as soon as possible..
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
(My 1 cup measures 240 ml)
Take your glasses, break a ladyfinger in the glass, pour coffee liquid all over it so it is soaked. Spread the cream mix over this. Now break couple more ladyfinger and pour coffee liquid over it. spread another layer of the cream mix. Now pop this in fridge and let it set for a hour or couple of hours.
1)Dont overwhip the cream and mascarpone cheese because it will make the separate and curdle.
2)If you want it comepletely eggless, instead of ladyfinger, you can use any eggless sponge cake. It may not be the traditional, but still it will taste great.
3)You can leave out whipping cream in this recipe and just use the mascarpone cheese mix alone. But whipping cream makes the cream layer lighter and tastier.
4)You can make the coffee as strong as you like, you can even add few splashed of coffee liquor or any rum in the coffee liquid.
