Ingredients

  • 5 eggs
  • 200g sugar
  • 250g mascarpone
  • 400g ladyfinger biscuits
  • 120ml Marsala wine or brandy
  • 240ml strong coffee, cooled
  • 4tbsp cocoa powder, sifted

Instructions

  1. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Set aside the egg whites.
  2. Mix the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Add the mascarpone little by little, mixing it with a wooden spoon starting from the bottom of the bowl going upwards. Stir in two thirds of the Marsala or brandy. Give a quick, final mix with the electric mixer.
  4. In another bowl, whip eggs whites until they become stiff.
  5. Stir in mascarpone mixture little by little, mixing it gently with a wooden spoon starting from the bottom of the bowl going upwards.
  6. Now that all the ingredients are ready, prepare the tiramisu tray, preferably rectangular.
  7. The remaining Marsala or brandy to the coffee. Dip the ladyfinger biscuits quickly in the coffee mixture. Just wet them. Don’t dip too long or they will become soggy.
  8. Arrange them on the tray. Cover the whole tray with one layer of coffee-dipped biscuits. Cover this with a layer of mascarpone mixture.
  9. Repeat alternately until you finish the ingredients, the last layer should be the mascarpone.
  10. Sprinkle with a thin layer of cocoa powder.
  11. Cover with aluminium foil and keep in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours before serving.
