Tiramisu cake

If anybody visits Mangalore , there is no way they go back without having an ice cream at Ideal ice cream parlor here. They got some really amazing drool worthy ice creams and we almost go there every weekend, like every other Mangalorean! There is this real awesome ice cream you get there named Tiramisu! My sister's all time favorite. It is basically chocolate ice cream with the Tiramisu cake and choc chips!  I wanted to try making the cake and I got this recipe from my friend Ayesha which i tried out for my younger bro's birthday! It was a huge hit at our place! :) Thanks Ayesha! :)

Preparation Time : 30-40 minutes
Cooking Time : 20-30 minutes
Sponge cake , 6 inch - 1
Vanilla Custard powder - 4 Tsp
Milk - 1/2 Cup
Sugar - 6 tsp
Instant coffee powder - 1 tbsp
curd - 4 tbsp
Whipped cream - 3 tbsp

1. Slice the cake horizontally into three slices.

2. Mix custard powder in a little cold milk. Heat the remaining milk in a pan, add the custard powder mixture and cook, stirring continuously, till it begins to thicken.

3. Add sugar and stir till it dissolves. Set aside to cool.

4. Heat a cup of water in a pan. Add one teaspoon instant coffee powder and mix. Set aside to cool.Add hung curd to the cooled custard and mix. Add the whipped cream and mix well.

5. Place the base slice of the cake in a glass bowl. Pour some of the coffee decoction over it and let it soak well. Spread some of the custard mixture all over it.

6. Soak the remaining cake slices in the remaining coffee decoction. Place another cake slice over the one in the bowl and spread some of the custard mixture all over it. Cover it with the third cake slice. Pour the remaining custard mixture over it and spread it over the top and the sides of the sandwiched cake.

7. Put the remaining instant coffee powder in a small sieve and sprinkle it all over the top of the tiramisu. Keep it in the refrigerator to set for at least one and a half hour.

Serve Chilled!! :)
