Non-Alcoholic Tiramisu

Daren's Tiramisu birthday cake

Daren's birthday cake for his 25th birthday

A simple non-alcoholic pick-me-up, pretty easy and simple to do which I make for my friends and family. Some people go clubbing, drinking or what not during college, I spent my time on the dancefloor, the lecture theater or the kitchen baking.

Ingredients:
3 egg yolks
1/3 cup icing sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
250 gm mascarpone cheese
24 ladyfingers/spongefingers
1 cup coffee (Nescafe works)
Unsweetened cocoa powder
Cadbury Velvet (Or get a bar of dark chocolate and use an peeler/knife and make curls of chocolate)

Directions:
Beat yolks with sugar and vanilla until smooth and light yellow. Fold mascarpone into yolk mixture. Set aside.

Soak spongefingers in coffee and arrange 6 of them in the bottom of a dish(whatever, I dunno what size, something similar to Sara Lee pound cake packaging or if you’re making a birthday cake, the spring release ones would be ideal). Make sure the spongefingers are not too soggy. Spread half the mascarpone mixture over the spongefingers. Repeat with remaining spongefingers and mascarpone.  Sprinkle with cocoa and Cadbury Velvet or the chocolate curls .Cover and chill 1 hour.
