I like that picture. It looks like eyes at the top and a little brown tongue sticking out at the bottom. Or...a bunch of cream and ladyfingers.
I wasn't crazy about that last tiramisu recipe I tried so I wanted to try another. I got this out of a Pampered Chef cookbook and made a few substitutions.
1 pkg (3.4oz) instant vanilla pudding 2 cups milk 1/4 cup light rum or cognac (I used kahlua cause I had some already) 3/4 cup marscapone cheese 1 pint heavy cream, whipped 12 oz sponge cake, torn into bite size pieces (I used ladyfingers) 1 cup strong espresso 1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
Combine pudding, milk, and rum; mix well with whisk. Lighten the marscapone cheese by turning and folding over serveral times; mix into pudding mixture. Fold in whipped cream to make filling. To assemble divide sponge cake into three portions. Layer one third on bottom of trifle bowl or glass bowl. Drizzle sponge cake with 1/3 cup espresso; spread with a third of the filling. Repeat twice to make 3 layers. Sprinkle cocoa over top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour.
I'll have to say this one was a lot better. It's a keeper!
