Cognac Tiramisu Recipe

March 15, 2015Sew White

This Cognac Tiramisu is incredible. The mix of cognac, creamy marscapone and chocolate is a beautiful dessert for an event or when you’re craving tiramisu.

I love tiramisu and the opportunity to try making it with a boozy twist was so tempting to not make and enjoy (and have the left overs for breakfast the next day – amazing). It is a very simple pudding to make and is lovely for parties as it can be made a few hours before you need it. I love good chunky layered tiramisu. Sweet, creamy and alcoholic. Delicious.

The best tiramisu recipe

After trying the fabulous pairing range of chocolate and drinks from Aldi I deicide to use the strong Cognac to help flavour the fabulous pudding. I decided to grate chocolate into the layers. It was so good. The chocolate was enough to notice and tickle the tongue in against the smoothness of the cream and sponginess of the sponge fingers.

I had enough of the sponge fingers and creamy mixture to make one large trifle bowl full but also a few little ones. These were lovely and it was nice to not share.

Coffee and Cognac Tiramisu

The mix of the coffee and cognac is a beautiful thing indeed. Cognac has that earth woody flavour and the coffee works so well with that. They compliment each other perfectly.

I used the Moser Roth chocolate from Aldi – the little bars have a great taste and being small they are easy to grate without them snapping. They are also a great size to hold safely (be do be careful when grating chocolate).
