Many people say that Tiramisu is the best Italian dessert.
Tiramisu is a traditional very popular Italian dessert made of fine cream based on mascarpone cheese, biscuits dipped in coffee and finally sprinkled with cocoa.
The original recipe for making Tiramisu involves the use of fresh eggs whipped with sugar combined with mascarpone and whipped cream.
In recent times, we can come across recipes with some changes, where eggs can be omitted, tiramisu can be with the addition of fruit, served in glasses as individual portions.
In order for the dessert to be as good as possible, it is important to immerse the biscuits in the coffee long enough for the biscuits to soak in the fragrant coffee, and again not too short so that the biscuits do not remain hard, but also not to fall apart.
This is a modified recipe without eggs.
- 200g biscuit
- 250g mascarpone
- 300ml sweet sour cream
- 200ml of black coffee
- 100g powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- A glass of amaretto liqueur or rum
- Cocoa powder for sprinkling
- Whisk the mascarpone and powdered sugar with a mixer until you get a fine creamy mixture.
- Whip the well-chilled sweet sour cream into the whipped cream, taking care not to whisk too much, then mix lightly with the cream.
- Pour coffee (nes) and amaretto or rum into a deeper bowl. Dip the biscuits in the coffee and place on the bottom of a cup or suitable glass jar.
- When we arrange the first row of biscuits, pour half of the mascarpone cream over them, then fold the second row of biscuits and pour over the rest of the cream.
- We can put it all together in a square mold.
- Finally, sprinkle the tiramisu richly with cocoa powder and leave it in the fridge to stand overnight.
