Tiramisu has been one of my favorite desserts of all time, I would give any food for just a piece of tiramisu. I didn’t have the chance to eat as much of this dessert as I wanted, maybe that’s why I loved it so much. With this recipe, you will have Tiramisu for Two.
When I was younger I thought that tiramisu is very hard to make and not everyone knows how to make it, but I realized that is quite easy.
I learned to make tiramisu from my mother-in-law, who would make it very often for my brother-in-law who was obsessed with tiramisu. That’s when I noticed that it’s easy to make. You need just a few ingredients for maximum flavor.
- 150 g of mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
- 3 tablespoons of coconut sugar
- 1 egg, at room temperature
- 200 ml of cold strong coffee
- 1 tablespoon of Amaretto or Rum
- approx. 5 ladyfingers
- cacao powder
Prepare 2 bowls, crack the egg and separate it. In the bowl with the egg yolk add 3 tablespoons of coconut sugar and in the bowl with the whites, add a pinch of salt.
Make some strong coffee, let it cool completely and add 1 tablespoon of Amaretto or Rum to it.
With a hand mixer whisk the egg yolk and sugar until creamy. Meanwhile, boil 300 ml of water into a pot and put the bowl over the pot. Make sure the bowl is heatproof. Over low heat cook the egg yolk stirring constantly, for approx. 10 minutes.
Wash the whisk, dry it and whisk the whites until stiff.
In the bowl where the egg yolk and sugar mixture is, add the mascarpone cheese, stir to combine and then, fold the whites with a spatula until you can’t see traces of egg whites.
Soak 2 ladyfingers in the coffee and amaretto mixture and break them in half. Add the ladyfingers into the jars, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of mascarpone mixture and sprinkle with cacao powder.
Make this step until you finish the mascarpone and egg mixture. At the end add crumbles of lady finger soaked in coffee and sprinkle with cacao powder.
And this is Tiramisu, easy no? And you have a lovely dessert for two, on a special occasion.
