Chocolate Tiramisu Cheesecake

Layers of creamy whipped mascarpone and coffee-soaked lady fingers make this classic Tiramisu an absolutely dreamy dessert your guests will love.

4 extra-large egg yolks
¾ cup caster sugar
500 g (1lb) cold mascarpone cheese
400 g (14oz) lady finger cookies
1 cup espresso
2 tbsp Kahlua / Marsala (optional)
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Beat the sugar and egg yolks together until white, fluffy and voluminous. The mixture should be smooth (sugar dissolved) when rubbed between your fingers.
Add the mascarpone and beat for another 2 minutes until smooth and thick.
Combine the espresso and Kahlua / Marsala in a shallow bowl.
Dip the finger biscuits into the coffee mixture then layer with the mascarpone mixture in a serving dish of your choice.
Dust with cocoa powder and refrigerate for at least 4 hours but ideally overnight before serving.
