It’s so easy, even a caveman could do it. (Geiko is not paying for this post)

So let’s get down to business:

Mix 200gr of Mascarpone, with 100gr of fresh Ricotta and 50gr of sugar. Once the mixture it’s creamy we need to put in the fridge for 15 minutes. Meanwhile we need to start with our crème pâtissière by mixing 0.2 liters of milk, 50gr of corn starch and 40gr of vanilla flavored sugar, we gotta cook this at medium low temperature until it get’s very thick, you gotta stir slow but constantly.

We gonna use a bag of lady fingers as the base of our Tiramisico.
In a 8×10 inched cake mold, we gonna lay the first layer of lady fingers, then we gonna open a can of anchovies, putting an anchovy on top of each lady finger, then covering with the oil of the anchovies. You can use low sodium anchovies. Then we carefully put a layer of the Mascarpone mixture and then another layer of lady fingers. Now you open a can of clams and cover all the lady fingers, if you need more than 1 can of clams go ahead, then we pour the juice on top of the lady fingers and cover it with a layer of crème pâtissière. you may top with fresh Cockle and 130gr of granulated fat-free dark chocolate.

Once you are we are done, we need to let it rest in the fridge for 1-2 hours, after this all you need to do it’s to take it out of the fridge and carefully deposit it in the trash cash, including the mold.

Tip: If you want a juicy and flavorful Tiramisico, you should soak the lady finger in shrimp broth. All you need is the head of 25 shrimps and 1 liter of boiling water, let the heads cook for 15 minutes, wait until the broth it’s at room temperature to start soaking the lady fingers.
