Very berry tiramisu

The classic Italian favourite with a berry good twist.

With a creamy mascarpone filling and bold coffee flavour it is no surprise that tiramisu has become a family favourite. But not everyone love coffee in their desserts (and some don’t like it at all!). Now everyone can enjoy the delicious layered creamy dessert with this very berry tiramisu.

This recipe is a boon for anyone who doesn’t enjoy the taste of coffee. You still get the delightful layers of sponge fingers, mascarpone but with the addition of a strawberry sauce in place of coffee and topped with raspberries. It’s absolutely divine.
