I started this as a cheat’s tiramisu, because you know how much I love coffee… but then I found a pack of frozen raspberries – the beautiful vibrant colour called out to me.
So, I made a make-shift pudding that is similar to tiramisu but breaking all the laws. I had a bunch of leftover chocolate biscuits that had hardened from one of the failed trials, and you know I am the queen of leftovers, refusing to ever throw anything out.
I dipped each biscuit into strong espresso, and layered with raspberry cream and essentially ended up making a gorgeous pudding! The tartness of fruit, richness of cream and chocolate and bitterness of good quality espresso!
You can of course omit raspberries entirely if you wish, replace with another fruit compote or coulis or mashed (mango would be awesome here, as would strawberries).
