Tira Misu


  • 0ne 600 gram packet of Italian Sponge Finger Biscuits
  • 600ml boiling water
  • 5 tsp coffee granules
  • 85 gram caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp sweet sherry
  • 600 gram whipping cream (Note: traditional Tiramisu uses mascarpone cheese but I prefer whipping cream)
  • One flake chocolate bar


  1. Boil water, mix in coffee granules and sweet sherry. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Whip cream.
  3. Tip sponge finger biscuit (one at a time) in the bowl of coffee mixture (quickly – biscuit should be moist but not soaked) and line bottom of tray or bowl.
  4. Spoon layer of whip cream onto the biscuits.
  5. Repeat stages 3 and 4 until you have three layers of biscuits and whip cream.
  6. Sprinkle chocolate flake on top.
