Tiramisu Recipe

 tiramisu recipe for 8 :

 
 
Ingredients
2 cups
strong espresso, cooled to room temperature
4
large eggs or 5 small/medium eggs, separated
4-5
tbsp sugar (one tablespoon per egg) I use a regular spoon to measure – if you use a measuring spoon it will taste sweeter (personal preference).
16oz
 
1
mascarpone cheese, room temperature
 
Vanilla
lemon zeste
1
7-9 oz lady fingers or vanilla wafer
2
tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (or to taste) Again, I use a regular spoon but a measuring spoon will also work.
Directions
1. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixture till stiff peaks form but not dry; set aside.
2. In another medium bowl, Beat the egg yolks with sugar until creamy, about 1 minute. If not beaten well, then the filling will have an egg-y taste. Then add mascarpone cheese and mix until there are no more lumps. .
3. Gently fold the egg whites into the mascarpone mixture with a spatula or wooden spoon.
4. Dip the cookies in espresso (you can add a shot of your favourite liquer to the espresso, like rum, amaretto, brandy, Frangelico, marsala, etc.) and lay them into a glass pan (or you may use another container/pan). You can leave 3-4 mm (1/4 inch) or a finger’s width between each cookie for the filling, or you can place them close/next to each other so there is no filling between the lady fingers (personal preference). Pour half the mascarpone mixture onto the cookies and spread evenly across the top.
5. Repeat step 4 with the next layer
6. Refrigerate for over night for best results. If you really must, then refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours before serving but it might still be runny. Sprinkle with cocoa.
