Tropical Mango and Orange Tiramisu

If you don’t like Christmas pudding and want a more modern, fresh dessert, try this. It will feed four. Increase the quantities proportionally if you have more people. Do taste both the juice and the cream and sugar mixture before using and, if it is quite sharp, do add a little more sugar or honey
1 packet boudoir (finger) biscuits – Juice of 4 oranges – 50ml orange, Amarula or Limoncello liqueur - 2 fresh ripe mangos, peeled and sliced – 1 tub of mascarpone cheese – 200ml cream – 150g sugar, vanilla if possible or add 1 t of vanilla extract – juice and pulp of 4 granadillas (passion fruit)
Mix the orange juice with the liqueur and dip the finger biscuits into it. Make one layer in the bottom of a pretty dessert dish. Mix the mascarpone with the cream and the vanilla sugar and spread a layer over the biscuits, then follow with a layer of mango slices and some of the granadilla pulp. Make another layer and finish by pouring over the rest of the juice and topping off with the rest of the granadilla pulp. Cover with cling film and keep in the fridge overnight until you are ready to serve
