My dear friend and neighbor Rania makes this beautiful tiramisù cake from three basic ingredients: Dream Whip topping mix, Nestle sweetened condensed milk and Nestle ashta, which is clotted cream or Devonshire cream (photo below). She whips them all together to make her own equally yummy version of popular Italian dessert.
Before I start with the ingredients, I want to say that Rani has done and decorated the tiramisù in the photo above. Beatuiful presentation, eh?!
Tiramisù (serves 10, in a 30cmx20cm serving dish)
– 3 envelopes Dream Whip dessert topping mix
– 350ml Nestle cream (ashta or Devonshire cream, also known as clotted cream)
– 250ml Nestle sweetened condensed milk
– 1 cup water, room temperature
– 2 Tbsp instant coffee
– Dark unsweetened cocoa
In a bowl and using an electric mixer, whip the first three ingredients on high speech continuously for 5 minutes. The mixture should thicken (like whipped cream). Let the mixture cool in the fridge while you prepare the ladyfingers.
Stir the coffee in the water and dip each ladyfinger in it until it absorbs coffee but remains stiff. Place the ladyfingers on a bottom of the serving dish to make one layer. Try not to leave any gaps. Now, take the cream that you prepared out of the fridge and spread it all over the ladyfingers. It should make a thick layer. The last step is to cover the cream with cocoa powder. With a small hand sieve, powder cocoa powder all over the cream to fully coat it. Thicken the layer as desired. Place the cake in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours before you enjoy with your 9 friends!
