This is my ultimate tiramisu recipe…thanks to BBC Good Food!
*Firstly, apologies for the poor pics, I will upload better ones asap :)*
It’s the real stuff! And it’s the recipe I used to make my tiramisu mousse fingers…utterly delicious mini bitefuls of tiramisu mousse.
However instead of dipping my biscuits in coffee, I added some instant coffee granules to the cream mixture before whipping as well as a tsp of vanilla essence.
If you want a firmer mousse, add 1 level tablespoon of gelatine dissolved in 1/4 cup of hot water, strained and added to your final mixture. Combine well.
Then just pour it into piping bags and make sure to let it sit for at least 24 hours or freeze it until needed.
