Tiramisu is a dessert of Italian origin, with a very fresh and light taste but also a very high calorie content.
The name comes from the Italian tiramisu "tirami sù" which literally means "bring me up" or "take me to heaven."
It is traditionally made with Marsala or Amaretto.
- 250 g Mascarpone
- 100 g blond sugar
- 24 ladyfingers
- 4 eggs
- 2 sachets vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
- 5 cl Marsala or Amaretto
- 25 cl coffee strong, black
- cocoa powder
separate the egg yolks from the egg whites
add the blond sugar and vanilla sugar to the egg yolks and whisk until the mixture is white
add the Mascarpone and mix
beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt
add the whipped egg whites to the mix with egg yolks and mix with a spatula
mix the black coffee with Marsala or Amaretto
dunk the long fingers quickly in this mixture (if they are too soggy, they disintegrate) and put them at the bottom of a dish
cover this layer with the egg mixture
put this new layer cookies and then the accompaniments and finish with garnish
leave in the fridge for minimum 4h
sprinkle cocoa powder over the tiramisu before serving
Because tiramisu is prepared with raw eggs, it must be eaten quickly (1-2 days).
