Yield: 10 Servings
1 lb Mascarpone cheese
6 ea Eggs
12 tb White sugar
2 c Espresso coffee
x Savoiardi biscuits
x Or lady finger biscuits
4 tb Cocoa powder
Prepare espresso and allow to cool. About 16 to 20 demitasse will be
Separate the eggs, retaining 3 of the whites for later. Whip the
yolks with the sugar until the mixture gets creamy and fluffy.
Soften the mascarpone and add to the egg yolk cream using a wooden
spoon. Combine the mixture whipping in a circular motion up and down
rather than clockwise or anti-clockwise. This imcreases the
fluffiness of the mixture. FOLD DO NOT WHIP as the fat content of the
cheese may separate and make the tiramisu fatty.
For a fluffier mixture whip 3 egg-whites until stiff and fold into the
Pour a small quantity of espresso in a shallow, flat dish. This will
also speed cooling. When cool dip the bottoms of the biscuits in the
espresso and place them in the bottom of a 9 X 13 inch pan. Cover the
bottom of the pan completely with the biscuits fitting them tightly
in the pan. . Do not soak the biscuits, only the lower half should be
wetted with coffee.
After the first layer of biscuits are in the pan, cover the biscuits
with at least a 1/4 inch layer of the egg cream. Add another layer of
coffee dipped biscuits. Then another layer of egg cream. Repeat until
the pan is full. Usually 3 layers are enough. The last layer must be
Refrigerate for 24 hours if possible. Before serving sprinkle the
top with either powdered cocoa, gratted chocolate or drizzle with
thin streams of heavy chocolate syrup.
Although many put brandy, cognac and other alcoholic beverages in
tiramisu, I avoid it. Alcohol tends to kill the other flavors.
Follow my suggestion and have your cognac separate in a heated brandy
snifter. A more suitable variation is to add a few spoonfuls of small
chocolate chips or coarsely grated chocolate to the cream mixture.
This is best prepared the day before. Cover and store the dessert in
the refrigerator to allow the biscuits to absorb the coffee and
cheese flavors. Right before serving, sprinkle the cocoa on the top
using a small strainer.
Enjoy and have one on me!
