At the BBF we love to cook with beer.

This is one of our favourite dessert recipes, replacing the coffee in a tiramisu with our new Imperial Stout to make Beeramisu.

Serves 4

* 250g mascarpone
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 180ml Imperial Stout
* 150ml single cream
* 4 tbsp icing sugar
* 16 sponge fingers
* Frozen bar of 70% of chocolate bar
* Cocoa powder, to dust

Method: How to make easy Beeramisu

1. Whisk the mascarpone with the vanilla and 75ml of Stout, until everything is thoroughly mixed together. Whisk the cream with the icing sugar until smooth, then fold in the mascarpone mix

2. Pour the remaining beer into a bowl (sweeten with more icing sugar if you like). Take one sponge finger at a time and dip it in to the beer. Set it to one side and continue with the remaining biscuits

3. Line 4 serving glasses with 4 sponge fingers, breaking them in half if you need to. Spoon the mascarpone mix in until you reach the top of the glass. Refrigerate for 20 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse.

4. Remove the Beeramisu from the fridge. Take the frozen chocolate bar and grate a little chocolate over the top of each Beeramisu. Finally, dust with sifted cocoa powder to serve.
