Dinobros

Florence is in HK..so she is probably as lost as you are Embarassed As to the finger biscuits, I saw them at Cold Storage, Compass Point. Sometimes, its labelled as Sugar Fingers. I used to buy it very often from Cold Storage at Kovan Heartland Mall..to dunk into hot coffee or hot milo..very nice..

Can't remember how much it cost per pack now. Trying to cut down on it as its very fattening..it uses alot of eggs and its sugar-coated too.

You should be able to find them in Cold Storage or Jason's. its often kept with the cookies/biscuits section. And arrange near to the western cookies..not the Asian biscuits like Khong Guan biscuits. Wink

Hi Florence, just managed to find your tiramisu as you use sponge finger. Just want to make sure, do you put the coffee in a bowl or plate for dipping. What I want to know is do you wet the whole finger or only one side of it? For I wanted to know how wet the fingers should be as when I cut it, should it be damp or rather dry. Thanks.

Hi Florence

I was doing this just now. Aftergetting the cheese mixture done and laid the first layer of biscuit fingers, then I realised my gelatine solution is sitting at one corner staring at me. I forgot to add it into my cheese mixture. It was not stated in the recipe when the gelatine solution should be added. So I just poured it into the cheese mixture and mix. Is it okay? When should it be added?? Now the tiramisu is being refrigerated. Just hope everything will be okay tomorrow.

Hi Lazyg3r,

You are right! I missed out the gelatine part. Embarassed

I have edited my recipe.

Thanks! Very Happy

I used Martell. Actually, I used 2 portions of the coffee-brandy mixture to soak all the finger biscuits. The taste of the brandy is not that over-whelming.

Hi all,

I did a Tiramisu yesterday. Instead of the Australian cream cheese, you can use Philadelphia Light Cheese that is in a tub. Too lazy to travel to town to get the Australian Cream Cheese so I bought the P Light Cheese from the supermarket downstairs.

The end product tasted similar! Very Happy


Do you think we could use the normal Philadelphia cream cheese?

Alannia...

(Let me kaypoh a bit here!)

You can use the cream cheese,but cream cheese is not as rich or light as mascarpone.
Cream cheese tends to be less sweeter and you might need to add more sugar.
Also,you'll end up having a "cheesecake" flavour to it.
But overall,it's fine to use normal cream cheese.... Very Happy

Thanks Florence. This recipe definitely a keeper. I baked it for Teachers' Day today. Even thou I over mixed the mascarpone by a bit, can see the lumpiness, the comment I got was it's nice, just like from cake shop. Smile Luckily no lumpiness in texture when eating it.

Hi Florence

Thank you for the very easy-to-do Tiramisu recipe. Finally tried it last Saturday - used a 8"x8" pyrex dish (for a gathering) and another 6"x4" plastic container (for my family). I wasted some sponge fingers and coffee mixture - too soggy to use. Managed to get it right after 2 tries. My daughter and her boyfriend loved it. I vowed never to buy another piece of tiramisu - your recipe is so good and easy to follow. Thanks a bunch.
Sorry - didn't take any pictures.
