Family recipe - Tiramisu Cold dessert

This is a delicious cold dessert my mother and gramma used to make. I tried a few times but had no luck. Then, finally asked my gramma for the correct recipe; it turned out delicious. In Portuguese, this dessert is called "Pave Gelado" similar translation would be "Cold Dessert"

  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 1 can of milk you can use 2% but full fat is always better
  • 1 can of table cream
  • 4 eggs - separate egg whites and yolks
  • 2 packs of ladies fingers wafers
  • 4 tbps of sugar
  • 1 cup of chocolate milk


Freeze the table cream for one hour before using, to eliminate liquids. Place condensed milk, milk and 4 egg yolks in a sauce pan ; stir it until you get a thick consistence. Place the thick cream in a glass dish, 11'x8" approximately. Dip ladies fingers in chocolate milk and sugar and place two layers of the wet wafers over the thick cream.

Beat the 4 egg whites until peak and add table cream, from freezer (make sure there is no liquids on the top layer), add 4 tbps of sugar. Mix is all and pour it over the wafers' layer. Cover with aluminum foil and place it in freezer for at least 2-3 hours.


Tips -

  1. you can add some instant coffee to bottom or top layer to give it a bit of tiramisu taste.
  2. if you like coconut, sprinkle some coconut flakes on top of the last layer and/or shaved chocolate like I did
