  • 500ml Cream
  • 250g Mascarpone
  • 200g Sugar
  • 400ml Water
  • 1 Lemon
  • 8 Sponge Fingers
  • 1 Bowl Mixed Berries
  • 200ml Fruity Liquor

I can’t stand coffee even though I love the taste of coffee sweets, coffee -esq Liquors like Tia Maria, Kahlua and chocco espresso beans. As much as I love Tiramisu I find it heavy so thus unsuitable to hot ass days which was where my Berrymisu idea originated. It was on a scorching hot Boston summers day when I decided to change up the classic Tiramisu and this is what I came up with. I’ve gone with Cherry Brandy and Strawberry liquor only because I couldn’t find Creme de Cassis or Chambord. Either of those would be my first choice but like I’ve said many times before don’t be put off by not finding something. Use your Noggin’ and adapt. Get stuck in.


Step 1

Usual rules apply. Get your shit together.


Step 2

Throw 200g sugar, juice of a lemon, 400ml water together and boil.

Step 4

Toss a spoonful of sugar over the berries. Mix lightly & set aside. This not only glazes the berries but it takes the slight bitterness away.
