5 Minute Tiramisu

Shared by: Village Feast
Recipe origin: Sydney, Australia

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, what better way to woo your sweetheart than with a heavenly dessert.

Tiramisu, Italian for ‘pick me up’ is one of my all time favourite desserts. I usually make the traditional mascarpone mix however, one night when I was feeling particularly peckish and a little lazy, I made up this quick ice cream version. It takes less than 5 minutes to put together and looks and tastes amazing.

Not only is it perfect for Valentine’s Day, it’s also brilliant for dinner parties and is guaranteed to impress!



Serves  6 (to make for 2 see tip below)

2 shots espresso (or 2 heaped teaspoons of instant coffee dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water)
1 cup (250ml) water, room temperature
1/3 cup (80ml) Marsala (replace with Kahlua or Tia Maria)
18 sponge finger biscuits (1 packet)
1 litre good quality vanilla ice cream
Cocoa for dusting

1) In a shallow bowl combine coffee, water and Marsala. Break biscuits in half and dip in
coffee liquid, evenly arrange the dunked biscuits into the base of 6 wine/cocktail glasses or tumblers. Spoon any leftover coffee mixture over the top of the biscuits.

2) Scoop 2 generous spoonfuls of vanilla icecream into each glass. Dust with cocoa and serve immediately.

Tip: To make this for 2, you’ll only need 1/2 cup of coffee with a splash of liqueur and only 6 biscuits.
