There is something amazing about Tiramisu. The soft cookies, the creamy layers and the light bite of alcohol. Oh it just makes my mouth water. My husband especially loves it, so I made some tiramisu for him.
My recipe is super easy, and has very little waste. It also does not have any raw egg. I once poisoned myself with raw egg and have grown quite careful since that sleepless night.
1 cup of coffee (cool)
2 shot of espresso (cool)
1 oz Frangelico mini
1 oz Baileys Irish Cream
8 oz mascarpone cheese at room tempterature whipped
8 oz heavy cream whipped with a little sugar and vanilla
1 pack lady fingers
unsweetened coco powder
To make the tiramisu you whip up the heavy cream with a little sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla until it forms stiff peeks. In a separate bowl whip up the room temperature mascarpone. Then you fold in the whipped mascarpone cheese into the whipped cream.
Mix the coffee, espresso, and mini alcohols in a tall glass.
Dip each lady finger in the coffee mixture for two seconds then lay down on a 9 x 9 pan. Once the pan is full add half the whipped mixture in a layer. Spread half the whipped cream and mascarpone with a rubber spatula.
This tiramisu is absolutely delicious. It cuts well and it is safe from a salmonella poisoning.
