      I’m not a coffee lover so I thought this would make a change and I can’t resist a Pimm’s!

      Thanks Jack. It’s very summery and easy to do.

  3. I’ve never had a real Italian type tiramisu, but your British version looks delicious! 🙂

      Thanks Angela. It’s popular in the UK so I fancied a British version. I thought about using a sherry but thought it would end up a bit like an old fashioned trifle!

    I had to check what Pimm’s was: interesting version of tiramisu, now I’m curios and want to try Pimm’s! 😀

    1. Amanda says:

      Thanks. It’s a very British drink and I like it with cranberry juice, lemonade and lots of fruit!

  5. Looks delicious Amanda, I prefer your version by far, I love a tiramisu with strawberries, can’t remember how Pimm’s tastes though 🙂

      Thanks Patty. There were so many strawberries around I had to try something different. I don’t drink much other than wine but it’s a bit like a fruity Martini Rosso. I’ve never seen it in France so maybe a Pineau would be good?

    Tiramisu looks amazing and tempting!

    1. Amanda says:

      Thanks Megala. It’s very rich but the strawberries lighten it up and we can’t rest until it’s all gone!

    You had me at mascarpone!

      I’m in love with it too Elizabeth as it’s the closest thing I can get here to thick cream!
