Probably one of my favorite desserts and of my son too, so every time we go to an Italian restaurant, I told him not to have a tiramisu for dessert because I can make it at home.
I think there is not a dessert as simple as this one that can impress like a dessert from a great chef.
For 6 people, you need:
- 250g of mascarpone
- 100g of sugar
- 4 big fresh eggs
- 1 large cup of hot strong coffee
- 20/25 biscuits à la cuillère
You separate the yolks and the whites of the eggs. You mix the yolks with the sugar, then with the mascarpone.
You mix the white in a hard mousse. And you add this to the first mixture. Mix slowly.
You soak the biscuit, one by one in the coffee, and put into a nice dish (remember the tiramisu will be served directly in this dish).
You roll out a layer of cream mix. Then you put again a layer of biscuits soaked in the coffee and a last layer of cream mix.
Put in the fridge for almost 4 hours.
Sprinkle cocoa powder generously on top one hour before serving.
