This classy-looking dessert is anything but. Serve with a glass of sweet sherry for the perfect lazy bogan treat.

White Trash Tiramisu (AKA Scallywag Icebox Cake) – Serves 6-8

What you need:

  • 1 packet chocolate ‘scallywag’ biscuits or other plain chocolate biscuits (250g)
  • 600 ml pure cream
  • 2-3 Tablespoons cheap rum
  • ¼ cup coke
  • 3 Tbsp icing sugar mixture
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • For decorating – 2 strawberries (optional)

What you do:
Whip ⅔ of the cream to firm peaks. Mix together the rum and coke in a small bowl.

On a rectangular platter, lay out 6 biscuits in three rows of two.

Brush well with rum and coke, spread with a layer of cream. Repeat until all biscuits are used – I had 5 layers of bikkies.

Coat the entire thing with a thin layer of the remaining cream (on all sides) cover loosely with cling wrap and refrigerate at least overnight.

A couple of hours before serving, whip the remaining cream with cocoa and icing sugar to soft peaks. Spread with a knife or metal spatula, dipping in hot water for the final smooth over. If desired, mix some cocoa and hot water and smooth over a couple of stripes, blending into the cream. Top with strawberries, chill and serve.
