Author Notes: Tiramisu literally translates to "pick me up" and it sure does with all the coffee, eggs & sugar. Great for dessert and devilishly delicious for breakfast, what with coffee & eggs, why not?!La Tavola Marche

Serves: 8

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups mascarpone cheese
  • 1 box of ladyfingers
  • 3/4 cup reshly brewed extra strong coffee or espresso, cooled/room temperature
  • 3 ounces dark chocolate, grated
  • unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting
  1. Make your pot of coffee & let cool.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar in a bowl until light, pale & "ribbons." Then mix in the mascarpone.
  3. Stiffly whisk the egg whites in a different grease-free bowl.
  4. Gently fold in the egg whites in thirds to the mascarpone mix.
  5. Make a single layer of ladyfingers on the base of a deep serving dish making sure they fit tightly together on the bottom. Then brush the lady fingers evenly with coffee (don't be shy, a good two passes with the brush should be plenty).
  6. Make a nice even layer of the mascarpone cream/egg mixture and sprinkle/cover with grated chocolate.
  7. Dust with cocoa, wrap with plastic and chill in the fridge for about 3 hours. Enjoy!!
