TIRAMISÙ #kidsproof

Today a delicious dessert on the menu: Tiramisù! I just love this dessert every time I eat it and that is as long as I can remember. I really never get bored with it! I have eaten it also in restaurants but unfortunately that hasn’t always been a good experience. So one tip: always ask if it’s homemade when ordering tiramisù in a restaurant! If yes, you can take the chance. If not, don’t order it because it won’t be good, trust me. No exception!!
Tiramisù literally means “lift me up” as in “make me happy”. Well that’s not so difficult with this dessert… 🙂
Originally the dessert doesn’t contain any liquor but lately you see many recipes of tiramisù where a bit of rum or marsala wine is added. I don’t really like it, so I never use it. That makes it also kids proof. And if you use decaffeinated espresso coffee instead of normal espresso coffee it’s totally kids proof! So get into the kitchen and make yourself happy 😉
* 250 gr. mascarpone
* 3 eggs, separated
* 60 gr. sugar
* 200 gr. ladyfingers (I always use Savoiardi)
* 350 ml (decaffeinated) espresso coffee
* chocolate chips (optional)
* cocoa powder

1. Prepare the coffee and let it cool down completely
2. Whisk the egg yolks with 30 gr. of sugar, a little at a time, then whisk in the mascarpone until smooth and well combined
3. Whisk the egg whites until stiff, adding 30 gr. of sugar, a little at a time
4. Gently fold the three whites into the mascarpone mixture
5. Dip the ladyfingers briefly in coffee and arrange them to cover the base of a glass dish or oven dish
6. Spoon half of the mascarpone mixture on top and repeat a second layer
7. Cover with some chocolate chips if you like (I love it!!) and dust with cocoa powder
8. Refrigerate for at least 5 hours

Buon Appetito! ♥

  1. This looks awesome. I keep trying to find the “real thing” and look a lot at Giallo Zafferano as reference, but all those recipes have like a zillion eggs. Nothing against eggs but…if 3 will do the trick instead of 8, I’m gonna try your recipe!

    1. Hi Diana….except for the chocolate chips on top (but I like that too much to leave it out!) this is the real deal!! Just like you I never make recipes with too much eggs in it. Let’s say they don’t make me enthusiastic 😉 Have fun making it and let me know, ok?! Ciaooo
