DIRECTIONS

  • Separate egg whites and yolks into two large bowls.
  • Beat egg yolks while gradually adding sugar until smooth and pale in color.
  • Fold mascarpone cheese into egg yolks gently.
  • In the other bowl, beat egg whites into stiff peaks.
  • Fold egg whites into mascarpone cheese mixture gently.
  • Refrigerate until ready to assemble tiramisu.
  • I brew the espresso like coffee in my coffee machine to save time. I use 4 Tablespoons of freshly ground espresso beans to 6 oz. water and I usually have to make it in 2-3 batches because the basket in my machine won't hold enough of the grounds to make it all at once. I suggest adding the grounds first, then matching that amount with water.
  • Combine room temperature espresso with coffee liqueur and set aside.
  • To assemble tiramisu:
  • Dip ladyfingers two at a time (one in each hand) into coffee mixture for one second on each side, then place immediately into pan. Continue until pan is covered in one layer of ladyfingers.
  • Spoon half of mascarpone cheese mixture onto ladyfingers in the pan, carefully spreading evenly to sides of pan.
  • Repeat with another layer of ladyfingers dipped in coffee mixture, then the remaining mascarpone cheese mixture, making sure to smooth top out evenly.
  • Put the unsweetened cocoa powder in to a fine sieve or strainer and tap gently over the tiramisu, covering it with a thin layer of cocoa powder.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour, overnight is preferred.
  • Tip: use leftover coffee mixture to make delicious adult iced coffees in the blender. Just add lots of ice, cream and sugar, then sprinkle cinnamon on top!
