Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well. Today is Tuesday and that means it’s a new Fortnightly Baking Fun Challenge! But before I get started, have you voted for the previous challenge’s winner? The voting is now open, please take a few moments to look at the gorgeous creations and vote for your favourite. It will be greatly appreciated!
Now the new challenge is.....................
That right, it’s that easy ANYTHING you want to make.
This fortnight’s PRIZE is a Food Lovers recipe book: Soups!
This Stylish cookbook offers a collection of delicious recipes that are straightforward to prepare, doesn't require hours in the kitchen and appeal to children of all ages. Whether you are making a meal for two or laying on a party, you will love using these exciting recipes to get great results.
Each mouth-watering recipe is clearly set out with a list of ingredients, preparation and cooking times, step-by-step instructions and a beautiful photographed serving suggestion.
My Example is the most delicious Tiramisu!
4 eggs, separated
100g golden caster sugar (I used “Rapandora” sugar and it’s MUCH nicer)
2tsp vanilla extract
500g Mascarpone (it’s like cream cheese)
300ml strong cold black coffee (just make a really strong espresso and fill it up to 300ml with cold water)
4 tbsp amaretto or rum or 2 tbsp rum essence
24 Savoiardi or lady fingers sponge biscuits. I made a sheet cake - recipe you can find here.
25g 52% Lindt chocolate or any chocolate.
Pinch of cream of tart
1 Whisk together egg yolks, half the sugar and the vanilla extract until pale, yellow and fluffy.
2 Stir in the mascarpone until smooth and creamy. (You might want to whisk in the mascarpone, rather than stirring)
3 Beat the egg whites with the remaining sugar in a separate bowl with the pinch of cream of tart until shiny and stiff.
4 Fold the egg whites into the mascarpone mixture.
5 Mix the Rum and Coffee together.
6 Put the one half of the sheet cake in the bottom of your serving bowl.
7 Pour half of the coffee and rum over the cake evenly.
Pour the coffee and liqueur into a dish and quickly dip the biscuits in it, one by one.
Arrange a layer of about 12 of the moist biscuits in the base of the large serving dish.
8 Spoon half of the mascarpone mixture on top of the cake/biscuits.
9 Put the other half of the sheet cake on top and pour the rest of the coffee and rum over.
Top with the remaining biscuits.
10 Add the last mascarpone mixture on top.
11 Grate the chocolate and sprinkle over the top.
12 Cover and refrigerate for about 4 hours.
