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
1 1/4 cups
1 3/4 cups
box of ladyfingers
reshly brewed extra strong coffee or espresso, cooled/room temperature
Beat the egg yolks with the sugar in a bowl until light, pale & "ribbons." Then mix in the mascarpone.
Stiffly whisk the egg whites in a different grease-free bowl.
Gently fold in the egg whites in thirds to the mascarpone mix.
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).
Make a nice even layer of the mascarpone cream/egg mixture and sprinkle/cover with grated chocolate.
Dust with cocoa, wrap with plastic and chill in the fridge for about 3 hours. Enjoy!!
