Today, we’re sharing a recipe for “Tupperware Tiramisu” that’s become our self-isolation tiramisu over the past few weeks, as it’s not only delicious and easy to make, but it’s small enough for one person to enjoy over a few nights without feeling like a guilty glutton too.

So, even if you’re a beginner cook who’s never made a dessert in their lives, get ready to be blown away by your masterful cooking skills because you’re about to make the fluffiest, tastiest tiramisu that your taste buds have ever known!

2. Put the mascarpone and sugar in a separate bowl, add milk little by little and mix well with a whisk.

▼ Ideally, the texture will be the same as whipped cream.

3. Add the whipped cream to the mascarpone bowl in 2 or 3 batches, mixing gently with a spatula each time.

Make sure your top layer ends with cream. Smooth the surface of the cream with a knife or the back of a spoon. Cover with plastic wrap or a lid and rest in the refrigerator for at least two hours.

Make sure the tiramisu has been properly cooled in the fridge before serving so it remains nice and solid on the plate.

all tiramisu is tasty, don’t get me wrong but I’ve never had a good Tiramisu in Japan; it’s always bland and weak flavoured
