Tiramisu



Never have I thought that one day, I'll be making this Italian dish. I'm not very fond of coffee for it gives me back pain. *Dark Shadow mode* But after my very own mascarpone cheese experiment, I decided to give Tiramisu a try. It is very easy to make, no baking is required but the ingredients are pricey-and that would be another reason why I never thought of making one before.

The taste is a lot like bahulu but it's harder and less sweet

Oh, and another good reason why I never thought of making Tiramisu before is because I never had left over yolks in the fridge.

This is my version of mascarpone cheese
This is the result using 1 pint of whipping cream
So, here's my version of Tiramisu:

4 egg yolks
3 tbs sugar
2 c mascarpone cheese

24 lady fingers
1 can of nestle mocha *the most "coffee" I can think of ><"*

Grated chocolate *I don't have cocoa powder*

Firstly, prepare a bain-marie and whisk eggs yolks and sugar until it becomes sort of like custard. Now, this custard is called zabaglione and it can be eaten just like that. I mean, with fruits or whatnot. Then let it cool.


When your zabaglione is has cooled, beat it with mascarpone cheese.  


Then, dip the lady fingers in mocha. I prefer it to be soggy but most of the recipe I googled warns us not to dip it until soggy *Perhaps I just don't have that Italiano taste bud*

Just to test whether the one I dip is soggy or not, there are some part I dipped longer.
Then pour half of the mascarpone cheese+zabaglione batter and spread evenly. Lay the lady fingers again and pour the other half batter and spread. Grate some chocolate on top but if u have cocoa powder, put cocoa powder on top instead. Chill for 8 hours but mine is only for 1 hour :P


The verdict: I should've make more mascarpone cheese!
