During my brief hiatus, the gorgeous and intelligent Claris posted up a tiramisu recipe.

# 6 egg yolks
# 500 g mascarpone cheese
# 60g caster sugar
# 1 tsp vanilla essence
# 1 cup espresso coffee
# 4 tsp brandy
# 4 tsp Tia Maria/Kahlua(coffee liqueur)
# 15 pcs of sponge fingers (can get from cold storage-boudoir biscuit)
# Espresso & cocoa powder for decoration

  1. Beat the egg yolks and sugar evenly
  2. Set the mixture over a bowl of hot water and continue beating until it leaves a ribbon trail
  3. Take it out of the hot water and continue beating until mixture is pale and thick.
  4. In another bowl, mix the mascarpone cheese and vanilla essence evenly.
  5. Pour the egg mixture in and fold until even.
