This tiramisù recipe is simple but totally indulgent, especially with all-important extra chocolate!

For me (and Italians would kill me for saying this), tiramisù is the coolest trifle in the world. The Venetians don’t really have many desserts, but this is a classic. It’s usually dead simple and all about the sponge, the coffee and the cream, but I think chocolate and coffee are such good friends that you’ve got to get a bit of chocolate in there. I’ve also used egg whites, which isn’t traditional, but they make it lovely and light and spread the mascarpone about so it’s not so rich.
