january: lisa’s berrimisu

Firstly, I apologise for the lateness of this post. I’ve been lucky enough to be travelling the world the last couple of months, so it’s been difficult to catch the time to create a dish for the blog. So for that I’m sorry.

Tiramisu is a classic dessert, loved and craved by many. Unfortunately, due to my aversion to coffee (I’ve never tasted it, as I intensely dislike the smell), it’s not a dessert that I can ever eat. My solution? Create a berrimisu!

It’s quick and easy to put together, and perfect for Summer. It showcases the gorgeous berries that are available in this season, and your guests will be wow-ed by the colourful presentation. Boom! Maximum impact with minimal effort. They won’t be able to resist coming back for seconds. Also, it can be prepared early in the day, so your time will be freed up for other things later. All you need to do is remove it from the fridge and serve.

I admit when I picked the theme for January, I already had a dish in mind to make. And then the time caught up on me. After returning home between trips, I found I only had a few weekdays “free” (when I was actually at work during the day), and the end of January quickly came and went. I didn’t make this dish this month, but I have made it many times before. Get the super simple recipe here.

I did do some other baking this month though – one of my uncles celebrated his 60th birthday last week, and I was in charge of the birthday cake. Easy, except that the party was held in Penang, Malaysia! So I took all my tools on holidays with me, as well the majority of the ingredients, and this is what I created for my music loving, guitar fanatic uncle :
