Tiramisu is one of the most popular Italian desserts. It is made of savoiardi (sponge fingers) dipped in coffee and mascarpone cream . It's fairly heavy on the calories, though you could use single cream to reduce them a little!

  1. Whip the cream and 3 tablespoons icing sugar until well mixed
  2. Beat in the mascarpone, 1 tablespoon of the rum (or brandy or Tia maria) and the vanilla extract
  3. Mix the remaining sugar and rum (or brandy or Tia maria) into the coffee
  4. You can either make this directly into serving glasses or make in one dish (which is probably better for the waistline)
  5. Dip 4 fingers in the coffee and line the bottom of the dish (or 4 serving glasses)
  6. Add a layer of mascarpone mixture, a layer of soaked sponge fingers and so on
  7. Finish with a layer of mascarpone
  8. Pour any remaining coffee mixture over the top and dust with coco powder
  9. Chill for 30 minutes before serving
