Honeyed Espresso Cream
This is a deconstructed healthier version of the famous tiramisu, minus the sugar, booze and biscuits. Exceptionally light and fluffy, with a hint of honeyed sweetness; it certainly hits the spot when you crave something soft, smooth and decadent.
1 shot espresso coffee (approx. 60 ml)
5 ml vanilla essence
500 g mascarpone
20 ml Food Lover’s Honey
250 ml cream
1 slab Waitrose Seriously Rich Dark Chocolate, or similar
a few raspberries or blueberries (optional)
In a large mixing bowl, combine coffee, vanilla essence, mascarpone and honey.
In a separate bowl, whip cream until stiff. Fold mascarpone mixture into cream, allowing mixture to become streaky. Do not over work it; keep the streaky effect.
Grate chocolate on a fine grater.
Spoon half the cream into 6 small glasses; sprinkle with a layer of grated chocolate and top with the remaining cream. Top with a layer of chocolate and garnish with a couple of raspberries or blueberries. Refrigerate. Enjoy as a light but luxuriant treat after a hard day.
