Tiramisu An addictive and delicious dessert! · Easy recipes

Tiramisu is a layered cold dessert, originating in Venice specifically from the eastern part of northern Italy, in the Veneto region in the 1950s.

Originally the tiramisu recipe consisted of: chicken egg, cocoa powder, sponge cake, mascarpone and coffee, however, today we find many variants that involve cupcakes, cream cheese, milk cream and even strawberries.

Ingredients for Tiramisu

  • 4 eggs
  • 80 grs. of sugar
  • 500 grs. of mascarpone cheese or 250 grams of mascarpone cheese and 250 of milk cream.
  • 1 package of vanilla, soleillas or savoiardi
  • 50 grs. bitter cocoa
  • Espresso or strong coffee
  • A splash of coffee liquor
  • Vanilla quantity needed

Tiramisu Preparation

For the cream:

  1. We separate the whites from the yolks and reserve.
  2. In a container in a water bath we place the yolks with the sugar and vanilla. We beat this preparation in the form of eight for 10 minutes or until the mixture turns a light yellow color and has a letter-point consistency.
  3. In a bowl place the mascarpone cheese with a little vanilla and beat. If we are using the cream and cream cheese, we just have to unite them and add a little vanilla.
  4. Then, add the yolks with letter point to the previous mixture, mix and reserve.

For the assembly:

  1. Place the espresso coffee or strong coffee in a flat container and add the splash of liquor.
  2. In the tray where we are going to present the Tiramisu, add a little of the cream mixture to the bottom.
  3. Then, we moisten the vanilla beans in the coffee with liquor and place them in the container the way we want.
  4. Add a little of the cream to the vanilla, and repeat the previous step until you use all the mixture or reach the top of the container.
  5. Once the process is finished, we add the cocoa powder over the entire surface with the help of a strainer and take to the fridge for approximately 2 hours.

Additional tips:

  • Try not to moisten the vanillas a lot, This will cause the tiramisu layers to break and not be noticed.
  • Do not detach from the yolks when they are in a water bath, since they cook very quickly and doing so will ruin the creamy dessert texture.
  • If it is the first time that you make this delicious dessert and you want it to be shaped and the layers to be noticed, you can help yourself with a little unflavored gelatin. You should only dissolve 10 grs. in 30 cc of warm water and add it to the yolks.
  • If you make this tiramisu overnight, it would be ideal, since all the flavors settle and better results are obtained.
