Huey's Tiramisu

Method

  • Bring 100 gm sugar and the water to the boil in a pot and gently cook until the sugar has dissolved, stirring now and again. 
  • Add the coffee, Amaretto and 25 ml Frangelico. Stir and briefly cook. 
  • Then lay the sponge fingers in a large tray, in one layer, and spoon quite a bit of the syrup over the top. Set aside for a couple of minutes and turn over, adding more syrup to coat as necessary. 
  • Put the cream, 5 tbsp sugar, 50 ml Frangelico, the brandy and mascarpone in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until the mixture is thickish and resembles whipped cream. 
  • Then put a layer of the sponge fingers in the base of a large serving bowl. Top with one-third of the mascarpone mixture and the grated chocolate. 
  • Spread another layer of the mascarpone mix on top, layer with more sponge fingers and top with the remaining mascarpone mixture. Sprinkle a generous amount of cocoa over the top and refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving.
