Sunshine Tiramisu Recipe

Sunshine Tiramisu Recipe

Nearly everyone loves Tiramisu so, when we found this refreshing alternative on the BBC Good Food website, we just knew we had to share it with you! Using almonds, nectarines and peaches in place of the chocolate and coffee really makes this a scrumptious summery dessert - why not try it for yourselves?


• 2 medium eggs, separated
• 50g caster sugar
• 250g tub mascarpone
• 150ml pot double cream
• 125ml Marsala wine
• 175g pack sponge fingers
• 400g mix of nectarines and peaches, stoned and diced
• 50g crunchy Amaretti biscuits


1. Using an electric whisk, beat the egg yolks with half the sugar until the mixture is pale and moussey - approx. 3-4 minutes. 
2. Beat the mascarpone in a large mixing bowl to loosen, then beat in the double cream until just combined. 
3. Add the mousse mixture and beat everything together until smooth and light.
4. Clean the beaters and then whisk the egg whites in another bowl until the mixture forms stiff peaks.
5. Add the remaining sugar and beat until glossy and stiff. Use a big metal spoon to stir a third of this into the cream mixture, then gently fold in the rest.
6. Put the Marsala in a shallow plate and dip a few sponge fingers in at a time, so that they are just soaked, not soggy. 
7. Layer half of the fingers evenly in your serving dish, then scatter over half the fruit. Top with half the cream mixture, then crumble over half the crunchy Amaretti biscuits.
8. Repeat the layers, but finish with the cream and save the other half of the biscuits. Cover and chill for a few hours, preferably overnight.
9. To serve, crumble over the remaining biscuits, then spoon into individual bowls.
10. Enjoy!
