Tiramisu with Tea

My take on the classic Italian dessert is a Tiramisu with Tea. It sounds odd but believe me it tastes really good. Great if you don't like coffee.

  • 3 Earl Grey tea bags
  • 250 g marscapone
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 200 g sponge fingers
  • 100 g grated chocolate


  • Make a cup of tea with 3 earl grey tea bags. I know it sounds a lot but you want the Earl Grey to be strong enough in the final pudding. Leave to cool.
  • Serves the Tea-amisu in teacups with saucers for a very cute way to present it on the dinning table.
  • Separate the eggs.
  • Whisk the egg whites to soft peaks.
  • In a bowl mix together the marscapone, sugar and egg yolks.
  • Gently fold in the egg whites. It takes a while but be gentle.
  • Dunk the sponge fingers in the cold tea and break up into chunks to make a layer in the tea cup.
  • Drizzle an extra teaspoons of tea over the sponge fingers.
  • Smooth over a layer of cream.
  • Sprinkle the chocolate over the cream.
  • Repeat the sponge fingers, cream and chocolate to make layers.
  • Pop in the fridge and leave for at least 1 hour.
