Tiramisu + Sushi = Tiramisushi




Sushi and Tiramisu, what a beautiful hybrid.  I first saw this recipe in  Demolition Desserts, the cookbook by Elizabeth Faulkner.  If you are a sushi lover like me, and like to make sweets like this then you'll be as excited as I am about this dessert.

I had to make the sponge cake portion of this recipe twice.  The first time I followed the instructions to the letter, and the cake broke apart as I rolled it.  I'd like to think I know a thing or two about roulades, so I made a few adjustments, and boy, what a difference.  Faulkner's recipe also includes chopsticks fashioned out of biscotti dough.  Very cute, but I chose not to make them.  I think the cake with warmed mocha sauce is well balanced without the addition of  biscotti.

The recipe below is my adaptation. (click here for printable version).






Garnishing for the completed rolls was not specified, so I  made my own.  I thought about using Swedish fish candies as a topping, but I think a supremed orange slice makes a better presentation (reminds me of a shrimp). The red "roe" on top of the other slice is made from a red meltable candy wafer. Chop one red wafer into little bitty pieces and roll between your thumb and forefinger.  The warmth from your fingers makes the candy soft.  Place the candy roe in the fridge for a couple of minutes to let it harden.



Also, the mocha sauce is not original to the recipe.  The original recipe has rum in it and I didn't have any on hand.  I did have the Marsala wine for the mascarpone filling, and I think it does add needed flavor to the mixture.  Although, you might get away with leaving it out and adding an extract of your choice.

This was such a fun recipe. I certainly think it would be a conversation piece at any gathering, not to mention very tasty.

It even won over the husband, my toughest critic!

  18. Hi there!

    Can you share a little more of what your process was? Did you let the cake cool too long before rolling? I can offer a bit of advise that always works for me.

    With this recipe you have to work quickly. As soon as the cake comes out of the oven it needs to be rolled. Prepare two tea towels beforehand; you'll turn the whole cake out on one and transfer one piece to another for rolling. I usually take the pan out, split it down the middle and turn it out on a prepared (floured) tea towel - roll immediately and let set until cool.

    Hope this helps -let me know if you did this and it still didn't work for you.

  24. Hi Rebecca!

    I did a screen capture and added it to this post. There's a printable verison linked, too, although for some reason the printed version is including two blank pages - I think you can choose to print page 2, that way no paper is wasted.

    Thanks so much for asking! I need to convert all of my recipes like this.
