Tiramisu is a typical coffee-flavoured Italian dessert of Treviso origins whose recipe has been adapted into many varieties of cakes and other desserts. In the summer time many people replace the bitter espresso coffee with a fruit juice but i’m in love with ladyfingers (savoiardi) dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with cocoa.
This sweet is perfect for a family dinner, let’s bake it!
Ingredients for ladyfingers (savoiardi)
- 103 gr egg yolk
- 50 gr sugar
- 103 gr all-purpose flour
- 158 gr white egg
- 42 gr sugar
Separate the eggs: with your hand mixer beat the egg yolk and the sugar until the mixture becomes thick and pale yellow; in another bowl, whip the white eggs and the sugar until the whites are glossy. Fold the whites into the egg yolk and flour mixture in three additions, mixing only until incorporated. Transfer the batter to your pastry bag and, holding the bag at about a 45 degree angle to the baking sheet, pipe the batter. Bake at 170°C (338 F) about 13 min.
Ingredients for mascarpone cheese cream
- 4 egg yolk
- 100 gr sugar
- 500 gr mascarpone cheese
- 250 gr whipped cream
In a large bowl, with your hand mixer, beat the egg yolk and the sugar until the mixture becomes thick and pale yellow; then, add the mascarpone cheese and whipped cream mixing until the cream until it is firm and fluffy.
When the ladyfingers are cold, you can make the tiramisu alternating the biscuit dipped in coffee with a layer of mascarpone cheese cream. The next day is even better but you can taste it after two hours!
