Tiramisu In A Glass

Chocolate Tiramisu
Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan, Nut Free and Optional Coconut Free

Its the time of year that I do like to give you a pre planned and and make ahead dessert for the big day !! Well any event really .

And one everyone will enjoy no matter what their dietary persuasion is !!!

This delicious Tiramisu in a glass can two stages.

Make the cake layer the week before and pop it in the freezer and the rest and the construction can be can be done two days before hand

They stand up well for being left in the fridge for at least 4 days without any due wilting…… infact make them a day or two before and the flavours intensify and your boozy dessert hit a new level 😍😍

This dessert has gone down so well the Cauldron Apprentice has asked for it as her dessert on Christmas day ….. so that’s what she will hopefully be having !!

It certainly has the wow factor and will serve you well at any event not just the Christmas Table

The recipe is not as complex as it looks, there’s a cake recipe there and then the filling so don’t be put off

Like I’ve said it can be done in two halves and you can crack on with the simple cake this week, leaving you just with construction a few days before

Though it can be eaten once its set !!!! Our first batch didn’t last to long so a remake to check standing time was necessary

So lets crack on and some pics to inspire you that this dessert is the one you need this season !!!

Dive in Everyone !!
