Luscious Lime Tiramisu

Just a quick post as I busy getting ready for our garden party this evening, well garden party is a bit of an exaggeration, we’re having some friends over for a barbecue and I’m making this delicious fresh tiramisu for dessert…

The Ingredients
4-5 limes, juiced
2 limes for grating (creme and decoration)
100g sugar
50ml water
250g mascarpone
250g low fat curd cheese
6tbsp lime sirup (or for grown ups Cachaca)
250g sponge fingers
1 bunch of fresh mint

Juice and grate the limes. Mix the water, sugar, the lime juice and half of the grated limes and cook until the sugar dissolves. Leave to cool down. Mix the mascarpone, the curd cheese and the most of the cooled lime juice (leave a couple of tablespoons to soak the sponge fingers). Lay the sponge fingers into the form (25x15cm) and soak with the lime sirup, spoon half the creme over them and place another of sponge fingers on top and cover with the rest of the creme. Decorate with the rest of the grated lime and some chopped mint leaves.


…lets see how it goes down…

    Yum! I love limes and this sounds fabulous. Is curd cheese the same as cottage cheese in the US, I wonder. This will definitely be made in my kitchen soon. I hope your party was a grand success!
    If I may ask, what type of camera do you use for your close up food photos? I am working on this. I have a refurbished Canon and need to practice more.
    Bisous and Happy Friday!


    • The curd cheese as we use it here is more like yogurt/ quark. To your second question, my fabulous camera is a Canon EOS 6D, the best! I love it!
      Have a great weekend Tammy

    Awesome idea. Very refreshing & summery (is that a word?) change to the same old tiramisu. Garden party is not exaggerating if that’s how you feel about it. Sounds like you are in the spirit for entertaining and I think that’s great. Have a great time. 🙂

  3. Sounds interesting. I like the idea of lime rather than coffee. Glad to know to use yogurt here in the US and not cottage cheese. Now I need to figure out how to translate grams, etc. into US cups and other measuring increments.
