This a beautiful alternative to the classical tiramisu. For a child friendly version simply omit the rum

Prep time: 20min

Serves 6-8


200g strawberries

2 eggs

90g caster sugar

325g mascarpone cheese

90ml white rum

100ml milk

12-16 savoiardi biscuits or sponge fingers

4 small meringues, crumbled

white chocolate to decorate

Hull the strawberries (reserve 4 for decoration) and mash with a fork, set aside.

Seperate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Place the yolks in a bowl with the sugar and beat or whisk hard until pale and mousse like. Add the mascarpone a spoonful at a time and whisk between additions. In a seperate bowl, whisk the egg white until stiff and holds its shape. Fold the beaten whites into the mascarpone cream.

Place a spoonfull of this mixture in the base of the serving dish.

Combine the run and milk in a shallow bowl. Dip about 4-5 of the sponge fingers in this mixture and then arrange in the serving dish. Spoon over half of the crushed strawberries and top with two crumbled meringues. Top with a layer of cream. Repeat the process finishing with a layer of the cheese mixture.

Decorate with strawberries and roughly grated white chocolate. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
