Here is the authentic way of making Tiramisu. The picture above was made with this recipe and it turned out so delicious Enjoy ;o)

  • 14 oz Package of Lady Fingers
  • 1 lb Mascarpone Cheese
  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 4 oz of Sugar, plus 2 tbsp for the coffee
  • 1 Cup of Strong Espresso Coffee (minus 2 Tbsp for the filling)
  • Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Tbsp of liquor of your choice (optional)
  • Chocolate Curls (optional)

      Step By Step On How I Made My Tiramisu:

      Before you start you will need to check the eggs for freshness Since the eggs are raw and not cooked, it is very important to putting them in a large bowl full of water If the egg lies at the bottom this means that the eggs are fresh If the egg floats to the top they are no longer fresh throw them out if you have any eggs that have cracks also discard them.

      *Separate the eggs place the yolk in a bowl and the whites in another bowl and set aside*

      (1) Prepare the coffee and stir in the sugar make enough coffee to soak the lady fingers.

      (2) Pour into a bowl and let cool.

      (3) Whip the yolks of the eggs with half the sugar.

      (4) Whip well till it becomes a light and creamy.

      (5) Whip the Mascarpone Cheese until it's creamy with no lumps.

      (6) Now add the egg yolk and sugar that was previously beating together into the Mascarpone Cheese.

      *Now with a pinch of salt whip the egg whites until it's nice and fluffy then add the remaining half of the sugar and continue whipping until you till reach stiff peaks*

      (7) Beat well until it's all incorporated.

      (8-9) Now gradually and gently fold in the egg whites into the Mascarpone and egg yolks until it's well incorporated .

      Give your Tiramisu a little kick by Adding two Tbsp of the coffee and two Tbsp of some liquor of your choice like Marsala Wine, Kahlua, Rum or Brandy Now that the Mascarpone and egg yolks are well incorporated the filling for your Tiramisu is now ready.

      (10) Arrange the lady fingers and started to wet them with the coffee. I like to quickly dip each Lady Finger into the coffee you can wet them which ever way you like the lady fingers should be well soaked but not over soaked.

      (11) Cover the soaked lady fingers with a layer of the Mascarpone cheese filling.

      (12) Spread with a spatula.

      (13) Sprinkle the surface with some cocoa powder.

      (14) Then add a second layer of lady fingers and wet them with some coffee if you have the first layer of lady fingers vertically or horizontally, then place the second layer Vice Versa.

      (15) Then add the remaining cream.

      (16) Spread the filling well

      (17) Then sprinkle with plenty of cocoa powder.

      (18) If you like you may add some shaved chocolate curls.

      *Store in the refrigerator for a few hours or over night*
