I feel like it’s been way too long since I posted a proper recipe here… So time for something summery and truly delicious. Strawberry tiramisu..!
So far summer or spring rather has been erratic. Warm days mixed with cold and rainy. Unfortunately at the moment we are at the latter of the two, with today being quite miserable. If you haven’t seen it or heard about it yet on Facebook or twitter or on Scribbles and notes…
Our family of two has been expanded with three beautiful little kittens. I post regular updates on Scribles and notes so check there if you want endless kitten pictures. But ofcourse I could not leave you faithful lot without any pretty pics.. So here are just a few of our new darlings. They are named Sookie (after the hero of True Blood), Buffy ( the vampire slayer) and Humphrey.
The only male was already named so we decided to keep it that way. We’ve had them now for almost a week and they are just too cute. They have endless playing sessions which are just hilarious to watch. I mean, who needs TV when you have three kittens running around right? They’re doing well and growing fast and getting bigger and stronger every day…
For more check the other blog! Now on to more pressing matters, namely this delicious tiramisu. These photos were taken as part of a photo shoot I did with Caroline van Beek, a brand new stylist, who also happens to love cats… So we got along quite well…She made this tiramisu and obviously things that look that good need to be eaten afterwards.. I have since already made it once again for a dinner with friends and you really cannot go wrong with this dessert. The strawberries make it perfect for a leisurely dinner with friends or family. It’s very simple to make and it literally takes just 15 minutes or less to make. I would highly recommend making this!
- 1-2 packages of lady fingers (depending on the size of your bowl)
- Orange juice, freshly squeezed
- 1 bottle of strawberry sauce or make your own
- 250 ml whipping cream
- 250 gr mascarpone
- 40 gr sugar
- fresh strawberries
- cacaopowder if you like for decorating
Whip the cream together with the sugar till you have soft peaks. Mix the cream together with the mascarpone until you have a smooth mixture. Mix a little of the orange juice with the strawberry sauce (you can always make more if you want) and dip the ladyfingers in the mixture. Don't leave them in too long or they will get soggy but also don't leave them in too short or the ladyfingers will not be moist enough.
Make a layer of the ladyfingers in the bottom of a pretty bowl and add a layer of the mascarpone/cream mixture, put a layer of fresh strawberry slices on top. Repeat until you are out of supplies or until you have reached the edge of the bowl. Make sure you leave enough strawberries for one final layer on top later!
Leave to stand in the fridge for at least 2-4 hours before putting on the last layer of strawberries and serve immediately. If you like you can sprinkle some cacaopowder on top too.
