A true classic recipe _ this one is made simple with Carnation. Normally you have to whisk egg whites etc _ but this one sets perfectly without and has a lighter texture than most recipes.


  • 3tsp Nescafe Espresso powder
  • 5tbsp cold water
  • 3tbsp coffee liqueur
  • 300g tub low fat cream cheese
  • 6tbsp Carnation Condensed Milk
  • 1tsp natural vanilla extract (not essence
  • 8 sponge fingers
  • 15g (½oz) cocoa
  • You will also need 4 pretty cocktail or open wine glasses

You could make one large Tiramisu and serve with some fresh peaches and raspberries.
