Tiramisu recipe from Rustico! This is by far one of my all time favorite desserts on the face of the earth!
- 2-3 cups espresso coffee, cooled to room temperature
- 2 tablespoons Tia Maria or other coffee flavored liqueur
- 2 eggs, separated
- 1 ⁄2 cup caster sugar
- 250 grams mascarpone cheese
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 250 grams ladyfingers
- cocoa powder
Put the egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl. Beat with electric mixer until the mixture is pale and thick. Add mascarpone and beat until combined. Whip the cream until stiff peaks hold, and fold gently into the egg mixture.
Beat the egg whites to soft peaks in a clean metal bowl. Fold the whites into the cream while retaining as much air as possible.
Combine coffee and liqueur into a large shallow dish. Break the ladyfingers into pieces that will fit in your glasses, and dip them into the coffee mixture one at a time. Drain well.
Alternate 4 layers in the glasses beginning with ladyfingers, and topping with cream mixture. Smooth surfaces and dust with cocoa. Refrigerate at least two hours before serving.
