One of the most famous and best desserts in the world, made of alternating layers of sponge cake and deliciously fluffy mascarpone cream. There are so many recipes in cookbooks and on the internet, but honestly, just like Elena's, the original recipe offers the incomparable taste and aroma.
The preparation is not particularly difficult, the secret lies much more in the selection of fresh ingredients.
For a Tiramsiu you need:
5 eggs, 60g sugar, 40g icing sugar, 500g mascarpone, 30 sponge cups, 200ml espresso, 5cl Amaretto or Marsalla and cocoa to sprinkle.
Working time: approx. 20 min. Resting time: approx. 3-4 hrs/ calories p. p.: not specified 🙂
It is super easy and above all very good to prepare. The perfect dessert when guests arrive. Separate the eggs for the tiramisu. Beat the sugar and egg yolks with a mixer. Once the mixture is nice and frothy, add the mascarpone.
Mix coffee, Amaretto or Marsalla and icing sugar in a flat container.
For the typical layers of the famous tiramisu, a mould is now laid out alternately with sponges and cream. Proceed as follows: Soak the sponge cups in coffee just before you make the mould. Spread the cream over them and smooth it down. Then apply another layer of soaked sponge cups. In this way, layer after layer is applied until all the sponges and the whole cream is used up. The last layer must consist of cream. Use a knife or a cake pallet to smooth it down properly. Now put the tiramisu in a cool place for a few hours.
Sprinkle the tiramisu with cocoa powder before serving.
