Passion-fruit Tiramisu


This dessert was made for a dairy dinner celebrating 1st birthday of our youngest daughter Amy. This is a quick version of tiramisu, based on biscuits prepared (or even purchased :-)) in advance….

Ingredients:

400 gr. “lady finger” biscuits

For the mousse:

75 gr. Passoa liqueur
75 gr. water
100 gr. sugar
3 egg yolks
500 gr. mascarpone
250 gr. cream

For the liquid used for soaking the biscuits:

40 g. lemon juice
25 gr. Passoa liqueur
15 gr. water
50 oz. sugar

3 passion-fruits

Preparation:

  1. First the liquid for soaking the biscuits – mix all the ingredients in the bowl and dissolve the sugar
  2. Warm the liquid a bit, but no need to boil it
  3. Now to the mousse/cream – start with beating/whipping the mascarpone and the cream in separate bowls
  4. Mix the liqueur with water and sugar in a pan, while stirring and bring to boiling. Then remove from the heat
  5. With a mixer (in a bowl), beat the egg yolks on high speed, and then, without stopping the rotating mixer start pouring in the syrup obtained in #4. The volume of the resulting substance will grow significantly at this stage
  6. Take the resulting (in #5) cream, first using about 1/3 of it, and, using a spoon, mix it into the whipped mascarpone, until obtaining a uniform mass. Then repeat the operation with the remaining part of the cream
  7. Afterwards, do the same with the whipped cream
  8. Now to the biscuits – soak them quickly in the soaking liquid and lay them out at the bottom of the form (we usually use a rectangular baking form). On top of the formed layer, spread approximately 1/2 of the mixed mascarpone/cream
  9. Cut the passion-fruits in halves, remove the pulp from 3 halves and spread it on top of the cream
  10. Repeat the same layers as in #8 and #9
  11. Keep it in refrigerator for a day, after which the tiramisu will keep its form and it will be very easy to cut it into serving portions

* The above process has been inspired by the Mango Tiramisu preparation by La Patissiere, but the ingredients and the proportions were modified/adjusted
