      Sylvie, Since you are in the UK, is the custard an "egg custard", like in egg custard tarts, or what seems to the "ordinary" custard in the UK, the corn-flour variety like Bird's (and other brand names). I won't make the recipe until I know which it is. I can get both variety here in Washington state USA and don't want to waste $ on the wrong thing.

      I have to warn you, DH has a guilty secret: he is a self confessed Tiramisu Snob.. I don't care for the stuff but make it for him, and when it comes to THIS, his favourite dessert, he is REALLY fussy.. he's looking for 300%perfection and he is hard to please. I really thought this would make him smile, but all I got was, "It's ok, I suppose, please keep looking" What! it looked devine to me? I don't have ready made custard so made up myself... done THAT dozens of times before so there was nothing wrong there. DH said that it needed a stronger flavour, something more, but didn't eleborate more than that. Please see my rating system, DH awards 3 stars, but heck, what does he know? Do you need a review from a Tiramisu perfectionist? if so, take this one to heart, if not, make it, rate it and make up your own mind :) Thanks !

      Sylvie I am one person who just loves Tiramisu. I just did not think this would be as good as everybody stated it would and boy was I wrong! Something so simple came out so good. This I will be making again. Thank you for posting this for us to try. Sorry I had to eat this before I remember to take a picture of it.
