This year for Mothers day, mum asked for Tiramisu when I prompted her for pudding suggestions...however I had planned a more summery fishy meal and concerned the coffee flavourings would clash afterwards...after a little googling I stumbled across this recipe by James Martin for Lemon Tiramisu (link removed as vanished!) and decided it would be much more suitable!
Post making notes - I think my retro serving dishes (have been in the family about 30 years!) are maybe smaller than James used as ended up with 5 filled and a seperate bowl. Additionally the lemon syrup made a lot and barely used half! Maybe go for 100ml of water rather than 200ml. Another tweak is that my plan to use the lovely Italian Amaretti biscuits I was given for Christmas backfired, as I had, ahem, got a bit peckish in the week and didn't have enough leftover! In the end I used trifle sponges courtesy of Waitrose, which I sliced in half to fit the dishes and used to make two layers, rather than the one layer stated in the recipe.
The main point is though that they taste lovely, creamy and lemony and with a little tweaking are a definate 'keeper!
