Strawberry tiramisu

When I first got the idea to make strawberry tiramisu, I did a fair bit of thinking about how to get it just as I wanted. You see, just a layer of strawberries wasn't quite going to be strawberry-ish enough for me.

Then I figured out a plan that was both effective and easy.

However it's always the time you think something is super simple when you get tripped up at every turn. Or at least it seems that way for me.

First, the store I usually go to didn't have my preferred brand of mascarpone or ladyfinger cookies. It didn't worry me so much, as there's another supermarket not too far away, so I tried there the next day.

Got the mascarpone, but still no cookies.

I tried another store nearby, but still no luck. So I resorted to online (which I maybe should have done in the first place). Then the order said it would come the next day but it didn't, it was late the next again.

However at least when they arrived, they were all intact, and I now had everything so things were looking up.

Thankfully, the one thing I had no problem finding was Florida strawberries. If you can't find them yourself, then just ask your grocer to get hold of them. We're right in the midst of their season, which runs from December to April and they're perfect for no bake desserts like this tiramisu.

Don't get me wrong, I love baked strawberry desserts too like strawberry rhubarb crisp and strawberry bundt cake, but I love the relative simplicity of no bake desserts. Plus, ones like this are so easy to scale up on down.

Die beste Erdbeer Biskuitrolle – Omas Familienrezept

Ich liebe Familienrezepte, wie sieht’s mit euch aus? In meiner Familie gibt es ein paar wunderbare Rezepte (z.B. Mamas Marmorkuchen oder Hummus mit getrockneten Tomaten meiner Schwester), dieses Rezept kommt aber aus der Familie meines Freundes. Seine Oma machte die leckerste Biskuitrolle der Welt und jetzt ist es meine Aufgabe, dieses Rezept nachzumachen. Ihr könnt das aber auch – ich freue mich, dieses Familienrezept für Erdbeer Biskuitrolle mit euch teilen zu können.

Das einzige, was ich am Originalrezept geändert habe, ist der Quark. Omas Rezept wurde nur mit Sahne und Erdbeeren gefüllt, ich finde es aber mit Quark und Sahne etwas frischer und leichter. Perfekt für den Frühling! Welche Version ihr auch wählt – probiert das Rezept unbedingt aus!

Cornstarch holds the key to crispiness! Tossing tofu in cornstarch and giving it a light coating helps it take on a truly crispy crust when pan-searing or frying.

Strawberry Tiramisu

Delicious and easy dessert with strawberries and cream.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE STRAWBERRY COULIS:
  • 200 grams Fresh Strawberries
  • 150 grams White Granulated Sugar
  • 80 milliliters Water
  • ⅓ teaspoons Citric Acid
  • FOR THE EGG YOLK MIXTURE:
  • 3 whole Egg Yolks
  • 60 grams White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Bourbon
  • 200 grams Cream Cheese
  • 50 milliliters Heavy Whipping Cream
  • FOR THE ASSEMBLY:
  • 200 milliliters Water
  • 100 grams Ladyfingers
  • Optional Toppings: Shredded Chocolate, Coconut Or Caramelized Nuts

Preparation

Note the strawberries need to macerate overnight prior to making the syrup. And the assembled tiramisu should also refrigerate for several hours.

First, prepare the strawberry coulis. Put strawberries in a large bowl. Cover with the sugar, then cover with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge overnight. The next day, remove strawberries from the fridge, put them in a medium saucepan and add the water. Cook on medium heat until the syrup starts to thicken, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from stove, add citric acid and let it cool completely. You can leave the mixture as it is, with a few pieces of strawberries or puree it finely.

Note: If you don’t have the time to wait for the strawberries overnight, you can cook them without the marination, but you will have to cook them a bit longer in order for the sauce to thicken. Or if you prefer you can use a puree of fresh strawberries.

Prepare the egg yolk mixture: In a medium saucepan whisk the egg yolks and sugar until pale. Add the bourbon and start cooking on medium to medium-low heat (depending on how strong your stove is). Whisk almost constantly until all the sugar dissolves and the egg yolk mixture is hot to the touch. Make sure to whisk often to avoid curdling the eggs.

Once the sugar dissolves, remove pan from stove and set aside to cool completely as you stir the mixture once in a while. Once the mixture is cold to the touch (or at room temperature) whisk again by hand or with a mixer for a minute or so.

In a large bowl add the cream cheese and cream and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Pour the egg yolk mixture into the cream cheese mixture and beat again for a minute just to combine.

To assemble the tiramisu: To prepare a syrup for dipping the ladyfingers, add a couple of tablespoons of syrup from the strawberry coulis to the water in a shallow bowl.

Dip each ladyfinger into the strawberry water for only 5 seconds. Don’t soak the ladyfingers too much in the water, because they will fall apart. Place a layer of the soaked ladyfingers on the bottom of your preferred serving glass or tray. Evenly spread a layer of strawberry coulis over the ladyfingers, followed by one layer of the cream cheese mixture. Arrange another layer of soaked ladyfingers on top of that. Then top with a layer of the strawberry coulis and a layer of cream cheese mixture. Repeat steps until your dish is full up to the edge.

Cover with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for a few hours. Before serving, sprinkle with shredded chocolate, coconut or caramelized nuts. Enjoy!


Preparation

Step 1

1. Slice strawberries and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar. Stir to combine and set aside.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine egg yolks and sugar. Mix on medium until sugar and egg mixture is light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add salt, whipping cream and cream cheese. Whip until mixture is thick and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, pour orange juice into a wide bowl.
4. Once cream is done, layer your dessert in a trifle dish. Dip ladyfingers, one at a time into orange juice and crumble into the bottom of the trifle dish. Each dish will get 1 ½ lady fingers on the first layer. Add a heaping ¼ of cream to each trifle dish. Divide ½ of strawberries amongst trifle dishes. Repeat.
5. Top with a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of strawberry syrup. Serve and enjoy.

COOK'S NOTE: If you want to 'spice' things up a bit, you can swap Grand Marnier orange liqueur for the orange juice.

What Can I Use Instead of Ladyfingers in Tiramisu?

This recipe is your answer. I’ve used thinly sliced pound cake instead of ladyfingers to make this Strawberry Tiramisu.

It’s a variation of traditional coffee tiramisu but it will become a family favorite after just one try.


Recipe Summary

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, washed and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice (optional)
  • 1 8 ounce package light cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
  • ½ cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons coffee liqueur
  • 2 teaspoons seedless strawberry jam
  • Red food coloring (optional)
  • 1 8 ounce container light, frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed
  • 2 3 ounce packages ladyfingers
  • 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur
  • ¼ cup strong black coffee
  • 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur

Place strawberry slices in a large glass bowl. Stir in sugar and lime juice, if desired. Allow to stand for 30 minutes.

For filling, in a large bowl combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, the 3 tablespoons liqueur, 2 teaspoons seedless strawberry jam, and a couple drops of red food coloring (if desired) beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until blended and smooth. Stir in 1/2 cup of the whipped dessert topping and 2/3 of the strawberry mixture. Set aside.

For the frosting, in another bowl combine the remaining whipped dessert topping and 2 tablespoons liqueur. Set aside.

Place 1/3 of the ladyfingers in a layer on a serving platter and the remaining 2/3 in 2 separate layers on large dinner plates. With a long-tined fork or a skewer, poke holes in tops of all 3 layers of ladyfingers. In a small bowl combine the coffee and 2 tablespoons liqueur drizzle over all layers. Spread the first layer with half of the filling. Arrange a second layer and spread on the remaining filling. Arrange top layer of ladyfingers. Frost the top layer with the frosting and top with the remaining strawberry mixture. (If desired, cover and chill for up to 4 hours.)
