My Classic Tiramisu Experience

My friend, U, guided me on how to do a classic Italian Tiramisu dessert. The steps seem very simple, according to him. He He. First of all, we need to prepare the ingredient. It is almost the same as any other classic Tiramisu that you can find on the net.

  • 500g Mascarpone cheese
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1 pack of Savoiardi ladyfingers
  • 5 espresso sized cups of espresso coffee
  • 1 shot (2 oz) Amaretto liquor
  • 4 tablespoons powdered unsweetened cocoa

First of all, we need to cook the espresso. As time is needed to cool down the espresso. Few pinches of sugar is added for the favor taste of espresso. Amaretto is added after the espresso is cold. Now, we need to prepare the cream. Separate between the egg white and egg yolk as we only need to egg yolk. Some recipes, egg white is also needed. Without egg white will make the cream thicker. Beating both egg yolks and sugar with electric mixer till smooth and thick. Next, adding Mascarpone cheese on to it. Beating them until all is mixed well even. Now, it is time to put everything in place. Deep the ladyfingers with espresso and placing them at the bottom of the container. Remember the sugar part of the ladyfinger is facing down. Then form a layer of cream on top of the ladyfingers. Repeat them for second layer. Sprinkle some cocoa power on the top of layer. Lastly refrigerating them over night. Served them by sprinkling more cocoa power if needed. Overall, it is a great experience for the first time though it is an expensive dessert.
