Tiramisu is my favourite dessert after cheesecake. This recipe is my kind of version of tiramisu ice cream. Though it is not authenticate, I like this recipe because it is quick and easy. This kind of dessert is really helpful for holiday season. The picture of this recipe doesn't look so good, because I was in hurry to cut it fast and eat right away!!
half pound chocolate sponge cake
1 cup mascarpone cheese
2 cup melted vanilla icecream
3 tsp instant coffee powder
1 tsp cocoa powder
1/3 cup water
Take water in one bowl and add 2 tsp instant coffee powder. Heat coffee and water mixture in microwave for 30 to 60 sec.
Take one big bowl with melted vanilla ice cream. Whisk it until smoothen with hand or electrical mixer. Then add mascarpone cheese. Again mix with mixer until ice cream and cheese mixed well.
Cut the cake into thin slices. Make lining of cake slices along the wall and the base of the serving dish. Pour half of coffee mixture on cake lining. Then pour half of cheese and ice cream mixture. Cover the entire surface of ice cream mixture with cake slice. Add the remaining coffee powder into cheese mixture. Mix it well and pour it over the cake slices.
Place the cake tin in freezer until fully set. Cut into the slices to serve. Sprinkle some cocoa powder for garnishing.
