Another Milo recipe?! YES! How can anybody NOT love Milo?! I have always made Tiramisu the eggless way, so I thought to myself… Why can’t I make it with Milo? That way kids can eat too!No alcohol, no coffee… Perfect! What? No alcohol takes away the fun? Not at all! This encourages whole family fun! Ok, ok… I know I get a little too excited when I talk about Milo. That’s passion baby!
So I chose to sweeten this bad boy up using condensed milk instead of powdered sugar, for that added authentic Milo experience. It’s so easy to whip up, it took me less than 30 mins. Now it’s in the fridge just chilling out… and waiting to be devoured by yours truly tomorrow. :-)~
Whip the whipping cream until stiff, adding 2 tbsp condensed milk halfway.
This should take about 5 mins. Do not over-whip or it will separate!
Meanwhile prepare your 3 in 1 Milo.
Place mascarpone cheese into mixing bowl and add 1 tsp vanilla extract.
Dip ladyfinger in prepared Milo.
Dip the other side.
Just dip and lift, do not soak!
Keep watch of your whipping cream!
Lay it out in the tub.
Add whipped cream into mixing bowl and fold the 2 mixture together.
Until well combined.
Scoop half of the cheese mixture on to the ladyfingers.
Spread it out evenly.
Using a sieve, dust the Milo powder on top of the cheese mixture.
There will be clumps or bigger bits that will not get through the sieve. Don’t worry about it. Just discard it if you want, or put it back into the Milo tin.
Continue dipping and layering the 2nd layer.
Then cheese again.
Dust Milo.. and you are done! You can do another layer if you want, split the cheese mixture into 3 portions. I prefer only 2 so the cheese is thick enough.
Chill in fridge for at least 8 hours or best overnight before serving! Try it with ovaltine or horlick too!

Lovely tiramisu recipe.
Do you whisk the mascarpone cheese with the whipped cream?
Sharon Lam25 April, 2016 at 8:19 am
Thank you! You fold both the ingredients in together after whisking your cream.

Hi Sharon, how do u transfer out the tiramisu from the rectangle Tupperware?
Sharon Lam26 October, 2016 at 2:05 pm
Hmmm if you mean the whole tiramisu, I don’t and it’ll be tough to. I usually slice with a sharp knife and use a spatula to lift the piece out. Alternatively, you can make them in individual serving cups.

Hi Sharon, can I use a 8 inch round springform cake tin instead?
Sharon Lam18 November, 2016 at 5:26 pm
Hi Edwin, yes. That’s a good size based on volume. You can refer to this http://keikos-cake.com/panconversion.html for future reference. 🙂

May I know how much sugar to use as substitute for condensed milk?
Sharon Lam20 March, 2017 at 8:58 am
You can add to your preference. I’d start off with 2 tbsp.

For mixing of cheese with vanilla extract, do u use hand whisk or electric mixer? If hand whisk, is it just mix for a short while will do? Thank you!
Sharon Lam2 May, 2017 at 8:38 am
Hi Shirley, I hand whisked it until combined and soften. You can also use an electric mixer which will be faster.
