The Italian recipe for Tiramisu

Tiramisu is possibly the most indulgent Italian dessert ever created. Here's a quick and easy way to make one to impress your friends.

  • 3 large eggs

  • 500 grams Mascarpone cheese

  • Espresso or Strong Coffee

  • Boudoir biscuits/ Lady fingers/ thin cakes

  • Powdered cocoa [or instant chocolate drink mix]

  • Sugar (to taste)

Crack and make 3 large eggs into two different bowls (use a large bowl for the egg white and a smaller bowl for the yolk). Make sure that none of the yolk gets mixed with the egg white, otherwise the egg whites won't whisk properly.

Whisk the egg yolks with an electronic whisk and gradually add sugar until the egg yolk becomes thick, creamy, and light yellow.

Add about 5oo grams [~12.3 oz.] of Mascarpone in another bowl and give it a quick stir to loosen it up. Then, with the electronic whisk, mix the egg yolks and Mascarpone together.

Wash and dry your whisk and then whisk the egg whites until they form firm peaks. Continue to fold the egg whites into the Mascarpone and mix until there are no lumps.

Put that to the side. Make some strong espresso and let it cool.

Line a large and fairly deep dish with lady fingers (boudoir biscuits) and pour over two thirds of the coffee mixture.

Put half of your egg mixture over the top of that, followed by a thick dusting of cocoa. Use an instant drinking chocolate, as it's a little sweeter.

Dip more lady fingers into the rest of your coffee mix (don't worry if you run out; you can just knock up some more) and carefully place them over the the top of the cocoa.

Empty the rest of your egg mixture over that and dust with cocoa again.

Leave it in your refrigerator for two hours and serve.
