tiramisu recipe

tiramisu recipe

Preparation time   : 30 minutes + chilling
Total cooking time: Nil
Serves : 6-8

Ingredients :

For the tiramisu we need :
3 CUPS (750 ml/24 fl oz) strong black
   coffee, cooled
3 tablespoons brandy or Kahlua
2 eggs, separated
3 tablespoons caster sugar
250 g (8 oz) mascarpone
1 cup (250 ml/8 fl oz) cream, whipped
16 large sponge finger biscuits
2 teaspoons dark cocoa powder.

Preparation :
1- Put the coffee and liqueur in a bowl.
Using electric beaters, beat the egg yolks
and sugar in a small bowl for 3 minutes,
or until thick and pale. Add the
mascarpone and beat until just combined.
Fold in the cream with a metal spoon.
2- Beat the egg whites until soft peaks
form. Fold quickly and lightly into the
cream mixture with a metal spoon, trying
not to lose the volume.
3- Quickly dip half the biscuits, one at a
time, into the coffee mixture. Drain off any
excess and arrange the biscuits in the
base of a deep serving dish. Spread half
the cream mixture over the biscuits.
4- Dip the remaining biscuits and repeat
the layers. Smooth the surface and dust
liberally with cocoa powder. Refrigerate
for 2 hours, or until firm, to allow the
flavours to develop.
