Ingredients for The Classic Tiramisu Recipe

7 egg yolks

2 whole eggs

1 cup sugar

500 gram packs mascarpone cheese

1 cup whipped cream

1/4 cup rum (or Guindia)

Cooking Tips:

No need for fancy tools! Just use your ever dandy handy strainer to dust cocoa.

Procedure for The Classic Tiramisu Recipe

1. Beat 7 egg yolks and 2 whole eggs with a mixer. Add 1 cup of sugar and beat until light in color. Whisk in 2 500-gram packs mascarpone cheese by hand using a wire whisk. Set aside.

2. In another bowl, beat 8 egg whites until frothy. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar and beat until stiff.

3. Fold in 1 cup whipped cream if you would like a lighter mixture.

4. Mix 1/4 cup rum or Guindia and 1 cup strong freshly brewed coffee together in a small bowl.

5. Line the bottom of a rectangular baking dish with 2 packs Balocco Savoiardi lady fingers, sugared side up, then using a pastry brush, apply coffee mixture twice.

6. Spread a third of the mascarpone mixture on top of the lady fingers then top with another layer of lady fingers.

7. Repeat the process until you have done 3 layers, ending with the mascarpone mixture. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and dust generously with bittersweet cocoa powder on top before serving.

      hi, grazie for the nice lens. In Rome there is a place really famous for tiramisu. They are even doing it at the stroberry or ananas taste!! I just love it. In Bologna they don't use buisquits (savoiardi), just the mascarpone, eggs and choccolate on the top of it, served in a cup. Tiramisu is always amazing, an ultimate culinary experience. Pure art. Thank you so much for remind that !!! Ciao, Andrea
