the best dessert you can offer your beloved guests
[hgallery3 id=”1204″ render=”single_img”]
In my opinion, this sweet deliciousity is the best dessert you can offer your beloved guests. You should be sure to prepare enough of it, since small portions will definitely lead to requests for more. A good strategy is to keep the dessert secret, and fill them up with the main dish. Then maybe even something will remain for you to eat it yourself later 😉
- Duration: 0,5h (+letting it rest for several hours, best over night)
- Difficulty: Easy
Since taste differs, there are many variations of this recipe. But ever since I learned this recipe and started using it, I can not eat the Tiramisu in other places any more. Either they serve it too watery, with too much alcohol or too much coffee. One time I even have been served a Tiramisu without Mascarpone but only with cream!
Usually I prepare a double portion. With this recipe, you do not need to care about the disposal of leftovers – there won’t be any! 🙂
Ingredients for 6 persons
- 100 g powdered sugar
- Cocoa powder (best to use 100%)
- 4 eggs
- about 4-6 Espresso or a strong coffee, cold
- 500 g Mascarpone
- 200 g ladyfinger
- 1 cl Amaretto or Rum (in case you are preparing this for adults 😉
Separate the eggs. We will only use the half of the egg whites. From the other half, I usually make Merengue 🙂
Mix up 4 yolks with the powdered sugar and – in case no children participate – a dash of Amaretto or Rum, until you receive a smooth mass. Add the Mascarpone and blend it completely.
Beat up 2 egg whites firmly and fold them carefully in the mass.
The first half of the ladyfingers make up the lowest layer. For this, pour the Espresso into a soup plate and place a square form in reach. Dip the ladyfingers with both sides shortly into the Espresso and place them into the form. I usually put the sugared side down, so that the cream can soak in better.
Add half of the cream on top of the first cookie layer. Then repeat this process by adding a layer of ladyfingers dipped in coffee and the rest of the cream. Smooth out the top to create an even surface.
At first the Tiramisu should go to the fridge or a cool place, the longer the better. This time is needed for the ladyfingers to soak in the cream. I prefer to let it rest over night to achieve the most tasty result.
Top the surface with cocoa powder right before serving. Bon Appetit!
