The word tiramisu means “pick me up” in Italian, and while this dessert isn’t the traditional coffee-flavoured version, it is precisely the type of mood-boosting dessert we need in the summer. My raspberry tiramisu is a fresh-tasting take on the original, with layers of whipped mascarpone and creamy raspberry filling sandwiched between layers of orange and Grand Marnier soaked Italian lady finger cookies. The raspberries add a touch of tartness and brightness to a dessert that can sometimes feel too rich to go back for seconds, and the hint of liqueur adds a certain “je ne sais quoi” which I love. Make this anytime you want an easy, make-ahead dessert to impress family and friends – 8-24 hours in the fridge is the key to the flavours marrying and the ladyfingers softening. Feel free to omit the Grand Marnier and rum if you’re serving kids, of course.
