Addicted to Tiramisu!

I miss blogging.. i miss this space and i miss interacting with my readers.. am taking a break fm baking till next week to spend quality time with my family.. i thought that would be the best thing to do after i hit 44yrs old yesterday ahaks.. To all that sent me greetings via Email, FB. phone... thank you so much!

Yes yes.. I turned a year older yesterday and i spent it with my loved ones.. invited everyone over and it was a blast.. now.. now.. i know i shouldnt promise anything but i hv tons and tons of pics to share.. Penang pics, my cousin Nadia's engagement pics and of cos my bday celebration pics.. time is really not on my side for now and for the past 10 days i hv not been well twice.. so i hope to keep on blogging next year and wishing everyone a wonderful year ahead.. May 2013 bring happiness to everyone...

So ok this is the last recipe that i will be sharing this year.. its a recipe which i had created impromptu  hehe.. its delish and am not ashamed to admit that i can eat two slices in one go... ishhh Rima Rima.. no wonder u cant stop coughing!

250ml cold heavy whipping cream
227g mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp espresso extract
1 tsp tiramisu essence

120-140g semi-sweet chocolate shavings
Cocoa powder, for dusting
a pack of ladyfingers (homemade and store-bought work equally well)
2 cups of strong coffee

In a large bowl, whip heavy cream and 2 tbsp of powdered sugar until it forms stiff peaks... place it in ur fridge

In another bowl, whisk together mascarpone, powdered sugar, vanilla essence. Whisk in espresso extract and tiramisu essence. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture.

To Assemble
Slice ladyfingers into 3/4 high.. place it around ur pan..

One at a time, very gently dip both sides of each ladyfinger into the coffee mixture, lining bottom of a 8" inch Springform pan. Dip and line as you go. The ladyfingers can break apart, so don’t dip them too long. About a 2-second dip on each side. Trim any ladyfingers as needed so that it fits comfortably in pan. Split mascarpone filling in half. Spread half of the filling on top of ladyfingers. Dust with cocoa powder and chocolate shaving. Repeat dipping and lining for second layer of ladyfingers. Spread remaining mascarpone filling on top. Dust with cocoa. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings. Chill overnight in springform pan to set.
