Express Tiramisu Recipe for Two

Express Tiramisu Recipe

Express Tiramisu Recipe

When it comes to parties and gatherings, I love to surprise my friends with my homemade Tiramisu. It’s definitely a crowd-pleaser! However, there are times whereby you just want to make some for yourself so that you could tuck away one corner of your bed to eat while catching up on your Netflix’s series. No more egg beating in a double boiler, neither do you have to make a huge portion anymore. This Express Tiramisu recipe will sure to please you (and probably someone else… if you are kind enough to share) without all the fuss.

I have made Tiramisu the conventional way before and honestly, I find whisking of egg yolks is just a waste of time and effort. Sure, it did help on the richness of the cream, but this recipe is just as velvety as it ought to be.

You could omit the gelatine powder if you want, but I highly recommend you to add into the cream as it helps to stabilise it when it set in the fridge overnight. With that, you are able to cut the Tiramisu beautifully into slices.  I mean, if you are making it for one (yourself, of course), just straight dig into the container! Why bother cutting it up?

Ingredients

Cream

  • 100 gram cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 200 ml heavy whipping cream chilled
  • 2 tbsp rum
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp gelatine powder + 2 tbsp water

Coffee

  • 250 ml coffee + 2 tbsp rum
  • 11 ladyfinger biscuit
  • unsweetened cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Beat softened cream cheese with a hand mixer until it is spread out.
  • Then, scatter in caster sugar and whip until it is nicely combined.
  • Meanwhile, microwave gelatine powder and water for about 20 seconds.
  • Drizzle in chilled heavy whipping cream into the cream cheese mixture and whip until the mixture is thickened.
  • Flavour it with some rum and vanilla extract. Continue beating until the mixture thickens back, leaving a ripple effect when it’s being mixed.
  • Stir in gelatine mixture when it is cooled. Continue beating for a minute to ensure it is well distributed. Put it into the fridge for an hour.
  • The mixture will be a little runny once you add the gelatine mixture but not to worry.
  • Once the cream has been well chilled, whip it on high speed until it thickens back, leaving a ripple effect when it’s being mixed.
  • To assemble, soak ladyfinger biscuits into coffee until saturated and arrange them neatly into a rectangular pan (approx. 13 cm by 18 cm).
  • Then, pour half of the cream mixture into the pan.
  • Arrange the rest of the soaked ladyfinger biscuits neatly, then drizzle the rest of the cream over.
  • Cover with a lid and let it chill overnight to firm everything up together.
  • Dust cocoa powder upon serving.

Curry Baked Rice with Tefal Ingenio

Curry Baked Rice with Tefal Ingenio

It’s weekday evening, you want something quick and simple. Nothing too fancy, but not too shabby.

The key ingredient to this recipe is actually the curry paste. Not only it has species in it, but it also contains garlic and onion, allowing you to skip the process of chopping those up. Any brand of the curry paste is fine, go with what you prefer and adjust the flavour accordingly to your spicy level. For me, I enjoy making it from scratch. What I usually do is to blitz up some curry powder along with curry leaves, dried chilis, garlic, onion, ginger, cinnamon powder, salt, pepper, soy sauce and a drizzle of vegetable oil to emulsify everything into a smooth paste and stick it into the fridge. It’s super convenient when your curry cravings kick in or when you have an unexpected guest to impress.

For versatility, I used one of my Tefal Ingenio pans for this recipe. From stir-frying to baking to serving, I have only used one pan, saving me some time and effort when cleaning up later on. That’s the great thing about Tefal Ingenio, it can be used on the hob, in the oven, as a serving plate for a dish and even store leftover food into the fridge.

Each Ingenio set comes with a removable handle which is used across all the pans. And since there is no handle sticking out when you are not using, you could store the pans away easily by stacking it up and tucking it away in a corner of your cabinet.

I finished it off with an egg in the centre of the baked rice. It’s a simple way to bring the dish up a notch.
