Fruit tiramisu

Desserts are sweater and more delicious when you share them. Italian desserts even more so. I’ll now offer you an exquisite recipe for tiramisu for four people, which is far from the origin coming from the Apennine peninsular, but it is worth preparing it. The trick of this dessert is that you can cook it using practically what you have left in the fridge.

Here’s what you need:

  • 400 g (14 oz) of your favourite fruit – it can be forest fruit, peach, apricot or cherry
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla powder
  • 80 ml (3 fl. oz) of cream
  • the juice of an orange
  • 3 tablespoons of your favourite rum or liqueur
  • 250 g (8 oz) of low fat cottage cheese
  • 70 g of (2.5 oz) of ladyfingers
  • 2 teaspoons of cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon of espresso coffee / Nescafe – optional

Mash 50 g (1,8 oz) of the fruit mixing it with the orange juice, the rum/liqueur and the coffee in a deep dish and then slice the rest of the fruit. Whisk the cottage cheese and the vanilla powder and gradually add the cream to the substance until it’s smoothly creamed. The hard work is done; what’s left is simply pleasure and fun.

Briefly soak half of the ladyfingers in the juice; then place them in a tray and use 1/3 of the prepared cream to smear them on. Free your imagination to order the sliced fruit on top: you can place the slices like roof-tiles, or in a circle starting from the center, or in any other way that suits your taste. Pour another 1/3 of the cream on, and then add the rest of the fruit slices. Place the other part of the ladyfingers on top and smear with what’s left of the cream. You should have got a brilliantly layered luscious puzzle.

Sift the cocoa to top as a final touch to this high-class piece of culinary art. Place the tray in the fridge for an hour and do not eat anything before it, to experience its true taste.
