‘Mangomisu’. A summer dessert.

>> Sunday, November 06, 2011


Today marks an important event in the Islamic calendar. The Eid festival. Happy Eid to everyone who observes it!

This weekend also marks the 6th anniversary of my favourite blogging event, Weekend Herb Blogging! WHB must be one of the oldest food blogging events that are still running strong. Huge congrats to Kalyn who founded the event, and Haalo, who has been taking care of the event for the past few years.

 A lot of reasons to celebrate, and I have turned to a rich, luxurious dessert which features mangoes, which are in season in Australia at the moment. The dish puts a spin on the much loved tiramisu, focusing on fresher and fruitier flavours. A perfect summer dessert!



 I’ve adapted the original recipe in Delicious magazine to be more children friendly! The original recipe said this serves 6. But I have served 8-10 with it and it’s plentiful.

 500g mascarpone cheese
 600ml thickened cream
 80g castor sugar
1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped
 300ml unsweetened orange juice
 300g savoiardi (sponge finger biscuits)
 3-4 ripe mangoes, flesh sliced 1cm thick
2 handfuls of dessicated coconut

Place the mascarpone, thickened cream,sugar and vanilla seeds in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat on high speed until thick and well combined.
 Dip half the sponge fingers into the orange juice and layer in the base of a large glass bowl. Spread with one-third of the mascarpone mixture, and top with one-third of the mango slices. Repeat the process, then top with the remaining mascarpone mixture. Top with the remaining mango slices and sprinkle with the coconut. Cover the cake and chill for 2 hours or until firm.
 Serve chilled.

I love how mangoes are coming back into season, they are one of the fruits I miss the most during the colder season. I like incorporating mangoes into desserts and liked how you did so for the tiramisu yum!

Eid Mubarak, Anh! Wishing health + prosperity to you, your family and friends.

This mangomisu looks soooo good. My sister-in-law used to make a tropical/pina colada-esque tiramisu with coconut and pineapple. It sort of reminds me of your beautiful summery twist on the classic.

It is a beautiful dessert with the mangoes laying on the pillows of goodness. Our mangoes here in Florida are usually in full season toward the end of summer...or at least my mango tree is, but I have to fight the squirrels for them. :)
