Easy tiramisu

  • 1 package of mascarpone (475g)
  • 500ml whipping cream
  • 2 tsp vanila
  • 2 tbsp dark rhum
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1 package of lady fingers
  • ~4 cups of strong coffee

Mix whipping cream, vanilla,  and sugar together and whip until soft peaks (e.g. in stand mixer).

Add mascarpone and 1tbps rhum and whip until hard peaks

Briefly dip ladyfingers in coffee + 1tbsp rhum and lay them down on the bottom of the dish (e.g. large rectangular Le Creuset baking dish). Do not soak the lady fingers, just a quick dip!

Cover with half of the mascarpone mixture

Add a second layer of lady fingers dipped in coffee

Add the rest of the mascarpone mix.

Sprinkle with cocoa powder through a strainer.

Let rest for at least 4 hours in the fridge.


Pour environ 25-30 caracs (suivant la taille des tartelettes; celles au Canada sont petites, en Suisse, ca fera plutôt 15 caracs):

  • 300g de chocolat noir (70%)
  • 3.75dl de crème (e.g. 35% m.g.)
  • 250g de sucre en poudre
  • colorant vert

Faire chauffer la crème et le chocolat à feu doux jusqu’a obtenir un melange bien liquide (normalement, on peut mettre les doigts dedans sans que ça brûle…)

Remplir les tartelettes du mélange au chocolat et mettre au frigo pour que ça se solidifie bien.

Mouiller le sucre en poudre de 3 c.s d’eau et 2 c.s. de jus de citron. Faire chauffer à feu doux jusqu’à ce que ce soit assez liquide, et naper les caracs avec. Décorer éventuellement d’une graine de café ou reserver un peu du chocolat.

Puis, remettre au frigo.

Griessbrei (semolina pudding)

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1/3 cup of semolina (durum wheat)
  • small amount sugar, vanilla extract

Bring milk, sugar, vanilla to a boil on medium high in a non stick pot. Remove from heat while you very slowly pour in the  semolina while constantly stirring (to avoid making lumps). Put back on to medium heat and stir continuously for ~3-4 minutes, and then immediately pour the thickened mixture into bowls. Put bowl in the fridge. Feed to angry baby/mom/dad.
