I adore Donna Hay. Her recipes are always well thought-out, healthy and simple to make for a family. I especially love finding her magazine in the winter time when the grey in Canada seems to be endless.
A dish that I keep coming back to is a total cheat of a Tiramisu-I’ve simplified it even more.
This is a non-cook, just assemble dessert that noone would be embarrassed to serve to the snottiest company. Come to think of it though-don’t invite the snotty company. Have a few girlfriends over and have a good natter. People who are going to look in the corners of your house for dirt are a waste of the terrific treat.
All you do is take some yummy ladyfingers (I have ones already made with cocoa in them) and pile them like a log cabin. Sorry for the colour in the pictures-this was late at night but I couldn’t help myself but to take the photos.
Drizzle with a bit of espresso mixed with kahlua (if you aren’t into the hooch then just sweeten the espresso with sugar and a bit of vanilla).
Top with thickened yogurt (I let it drain in a coffee filter for a couple of hours) sweetened with a bit of icing sugar, chunks of dark chocolate and nutmeg.
Shave over some dark chocolate.
