Updated: Apr 26, 2020

Tiramisu is a traditional creamy delicious Italian dessert. The word “tirami su” in Italian means “lift me up”…and here are 2 different recipes (adult version and baby version) to lift up your spirit!!!

Tiramisu For Daddy & Mummy


Tiramisu

Ingredients

  1. 3 eggs  (seperate yolks from egg white)

  2. 3tbsp + 2tbsp Sugar

  3. Pinch of salt

  4. 250g mascarpone

  5. 1/2 stalk Vanilla bean

  6. 1tsp vanilla extract

  7. 1 pack lady fingers

  8. 1 cup brewed espresso

  9. 1 shot coffee liqueur

  10. 2tsp coffee sugar

  11. Dust of cocoa powder


Method

For mascarpone cream 

  1. Separate the egg yolks from the whites.

  2. Boil a pot of water to a temperature of 160F (70C).

  3. Place another pot over the warm pot. Beat egg yolks with sugar in the empty pot until thick, creamy and pale yellow colored. Add vanilla beans & vanilla extract and transfer to another bowl to cool.

  4. When cool, beat mascarpone cheese and blend well.

  5. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites, 2 tbsp of sugar and salt until peak foam.

  6. Fold the eggwhite slowly to the mascarpone mixture & leave in fridge.

For coffee dip

  1. Add coffee sugar to expresso. Combine the cooled espresso with liqueur.


Preparing Tiramisu 

I prepare my Tiramisu in mini glass bowl.

This recipe makes 8 mini bowls

  1. Add a layer of the mascarpone mixture at base of glass bowl.

  2. Break the ladyfingers in half & dip them in the coffee mixture. The ladyfingers will.absorb the liquid very quickly. Hence, you need to quickly remove them & lay it onto the base of the bowl, on top of the mascarpone layer. (For visual effects, place ladyfingers closer to the sides of glass.)

  3. Add another layer of the mascarpone mixture covering the ladyfingers . Lay another layer of soaked ladyfingers and add final layer of the mascarcpone mixture on top.

  4. Repeat step 1 to 3 until you have 8 mini bowls of Tiramisu.

  5. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 4-6 hours before serving.

  6. Sprinkle cocoa powder on top and serve.

Tips 1: Do not soak the ladyfingers too much, only the edges should be soaked, not entirely.

Tips 2: Freeze the Tiramisu if you prefer to eat it like an ice-cream.
