Tiramisu Slice Recipe

Here is a quick and easy twist on the ever-popular classic dessert. Wonderful for entertaining!

PREP TIME: 20 minutes
COOKING TIME: 4-6 hrs chill time
SERVES: 6-8

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 Cappuccino flavoured loaf
  • 25ml instant coffee dissolved in 75 ml boiling water
  • brown sugar to taste
  • 30ml brandy or sweet dessert wine (optional)
  • 1 box vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 bottle vanilla coffee flavoured milk, chilled (300 ml)
  • 1 tub mascarpone cheese (250 g), at room temperature
  • 125ml fresh cream
  • To finish off: 15 ml cocoa

Recipe Method

  • Line a standard loaf tin with foil, extending above the sides to serve as a handle to lift the loaf out later.

  • Cut the loaf into 8 equal slices, and then each slice in half lengthwise, so you have 16 finger-size lengths the width of the tin. Place half of these in a row down the length of the base of a standard loaf pan.

  • Sweeten, then flavour the black coffee with brandy if using. Pour half of this mixture over the cake slices. Do not saturate the cake.

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the instant pudding, cream and flavoured milk together until thickened. Beat in the mascarpone cheese.

  • Pour half the filling over the cake. Repeat with the remaining cake and filling to fill the tin completely.

  • Chill for at least 4 hours.

  • Using the foil liner, lift the loaf out of the pan and peel the foil away from the sides.

  • Sieve cocoa powder generously across the top. Slice off 8 portions, using the original cake slice thickness as your guide.

Hints & Tips

For a dinner party, prepare up to Step 7 the day before, so it is as good as ready when you need it.
