Mango and Lime Tiramisu
Delicious Mango comes together with lime and a touch of Cointreau to produce a trully drool-worthy dessert. Serves 6-8 people
4 large mangoes (can be substituted with canned mango)
250ml freshly squeezed orange juice
3 tbsp Cointreau
250g pkt sponge finger biscuits (savoiardi)
3 eggs, separated
50g (1/4 cup) caster sugar
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 large lime
*Peel and slice the mangoes into thin slices.
* In a shallow dish, mix together the orange juice and Cointreau. Dip the biscuits in the mixture and lay over the base of the serving dish until it is completely covered.
* Beat together the mascarpone, egg yolks, sugar, lime juice and finely chopped zest until smooth. Whisk the egg whites in a separate clean bowl until they form soft peaks. Fold through the mascarpone mixture.
* Spread half the mascarpone mixture over the biscuits and top with a layer of mango. Repeat the process using up the remaining biscuits, mascarpone and mango. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least four hours.
Tip: the number of layers will depend on the size and depth of your dish.
