Recipe & Photo Credit: Stay at Home Mum


1 600 Millilitre Thickened Cream or heavy cream
500 grams Strawberries
300 grams Mascarpone Cheese
1 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
4 tbsp Caster Sugar
2 tbsp Icing Sugar or more for serving
2 10x15cm Sponge Cake or 16 Savoiardi biscuits
2 tbsp Cointreau optional
1 100 Millilitre Orange Juice


Step 1
Finely chop ¾ of the strawberries. Place chopped strawberries, orange juice and caster sugar into a small sauce pan. Simmer on a medium heat until strawberry dissolves.

Step 2
Using a hand blender puree the mixture. Place mixture onto a brownie pan and allow to cool.

Step 3
In a medium bowl, beat the cream until soft peaks form. Add the icing sugar, vanilla bean paste and mascarpone. Beat until well combined.

Step 4
Get the serving tray or glasses ready.

Step 5
Cut the sponge or savoiardi to fit the serving tray or glasses. Place the sponge fingers into the strawberry mixture and allow to sit for 30 seconds each side.

Step 6
Layer the biscuits at the bottom of each glass or tray, top with a dollop of the strawberry mixture (if making the adult version drizzle some Cointreau onto the biscuits), top with cream. Repeat to produce another layer, and until you have no more biscuits left.

Step 7
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Step 8
Thinly slice the remaining strawberries and layer on top of tiramisu. Before serving, dust with icing sugar.
