Carrying on with the Italian theme from last weeks Lemon and Rosemary Cannoli, this week I am trying tiramisu brownies. While this version does unfortunately cut out the booze, I would still advise that, if you are on a diet, I would probably give this recipe a miss!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with tiramisu, it is a popular Italian dessert made with coffee, ladyfingers and mascarpone. While there have been many different version and variations on it, my decision to turn it into a brownie was, again, an attempt to try a few different recipes for when I start my job with Eatali, an Italian Street Food company. Although tiramisu in it’s purest form would be delicious, I thought I would try and adapt it a bit, not only to make it easier to serve, but also as a tasty afternoon treat.
If I do say so myself, this recipe definitely ticked those boxes. This is something which is largely proven by my inability to leave it alone, and my new found urgency to re-join the gym and get back to some spinning classes. The coffee flavours in the brownie really enhance the richness of the bake, but this is balanced well with the creaminess of the mascarpone. I definitely have to work on the marbling on the top so it is a bit more prominent, but other than that I was happy with the bake. You’ll have to forgive me for not sharing the recipe just yet, but it’s fairly easy to experiment with brownie recipes. So, whichever flavours you decide to go for, either way I hope you enjoy!
