My Making of Tiramisu Without Eggs

8 Oct

I used to be like others thinking tiramisu this type of cake is very high class, difficult to make, or at least need some special skills. Outside selling expensive too. Now after trial and error for a few times, be rest assured, if I being such a baking dummy can make it, so do you! :)

This is the 8 inch square pan.

Here are the ingredients.

Original source shared by friend :
Cream cheese 250gm, philadelphia or tatura.
Whipping cream 300-400ml.
Instant coffee (nescafe) 2-3 tbsp.
Cocoa powder.
Sponge fingers.

My recipe:
Galbani Mascarpone cheese 250gm *2 (soften at room temp)
Diary whipped cream ~250gm
Kahlua liquor
Bonomi savoiardi fingers (at least 2 pkts =24 pieces)
Express Coffee / Nescafe Coffee (2 tbsp or more to make up 1 cup), add sugar to taste (optional)
Chocolate powder (to sprinkle on top)

The  Tatua mascarpone cheese (250gm. RM11.00 each) is way much cheaper compared to Galbani mascarpone cheese (250gm. RM27.80).

I put kahlua into the coffee. About 6- 8 tbsp. Espresso and coffee liquor (kahlua) should be mixed  together on stove top. [...]

Nestum Cookies as simple as ABC

14 Sep

Recently I picked up baking.

INGREDIENTS :
125g unsalted butter, softened
125g caster sugar (I used icing sugar. Many people complaint it is TOO SWEET, may be moving forward I shall reduce to ~80g only)
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
75g all-purpose flour (also called cake flour)
1/4 tsp baking soda
100g Nestum (roughly 1.5 cups or more)

 

DIRECTIONS :
Step 1: Preheat oven to 175°C. Sheet baking pan with parchment paper.
Step 2: Cream the butter, sugar and salt. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until the mixture is light and fluffy. Sift in the flour and baking soda. Add the Nestum and mix until I get quite a dry dough.
Step 3: Using two teaspoons, I portion out and place 50-cents size dough balls on the sheet pan. Then I press down using fork to get about 1 cm thickness each.
Step 4 : I baked using 140°C (instead of 175 °C as per recipe due to my Butterfly Oven is too hot per my first trial), about 10min-12min.

I removed the cookies from the oven when the bottom has slightly turned brown and the top part still remains white and soft.

Raw ingredients are :
