Egg Free Tiramisu

I haven't made a Tiramisu for many many years. As I watched my old Tiramisu Charlotte Cake video on YouTube, I decided to work on the recipe to improve on it now that my skills and knowledge have greatly improved. And one of my favourite things about my new recipe is that it is an egg-free recipe!

Egg Free Tiramisu
(23cm x 11cm x 8cm loaf tin, 3 layered cake)
4 shots of espresso (approx ...) (room temperature)
3 tablespoons of Marsala
250g Mascarpone cheese
200g whipping cream
40g sugar
some cocoa powder

Preparation: Line your loaf tin or container with some baking paper.
  1. Beat mascarpone cheese with sugar until soft and creamy.
  2. Add whipping cream and combine well until creamy, smooth and spreadable. Set aside.
  3. Combine Marsala with the espresso.
  4. Sometimes you may have to cut the lady fingers to fit them nicely into the container/dish, it is a good idea to try putting the lady fingers in the container first before assembling the cake. Spread some mascarpone cream mixture evenly at the bottom of the container. Assemble the cake: Dip the lady fingers into the espresso, one at a time. Be careful not to soak the lady fingers.  Place dipped lady fingers side by side to form a layer. Cover with a layer of mascarpone cream mixture (roughly 1/3 of the mixture), spreading it out evenly. Sift over a layer of cocoa powder. Repeat the above steps for the remaining two layers of the cake with the rest of ingredients.
  5. Chill in the fridge. Dust with some cocoa powder before serving.
