Ingredient AmountComment
For the Main Part
Ladyfingers cookies 14 oz
Mascarpone Cheese 14 oz
Whole egg, raw 3
Granulated sugar 4 oz
Dark chocolate,60-69% cacao 2 oz

Cut in coarse pieces

Cocoa Powder,unswtnd 3/4 oz
Brewed coffee, espresso 1 cup (8 fl oz)

Recommended Ingredients and Equipment

1 First thing, make the coffee. You need strong coffee, a whole cup of espresso. In case you don't have an espresso machine, you could use some concentrated good quality instant coffee. Let it cool.
2 Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Mount the egg whites with pinch of salt on the stand mixer or hand mixer and set aside. Again in the stand mixer bowl, mix the egg yolks with the sugar and let it mix till the mix becomes pale yellow in color.
3 Pour the mounted egg whites onto the yolk/sugar mix. To mix them, use a silicon spatula or wooden spoon to gently mix from the bottom of the mixing bowl to the top, gently incorporating the mounted whites in the mix. The goal is to preserve the fluffiness as much as possible. This technique is called "folding".
(Optional) 4 Cut the chocolate in small pieces. You can use chocolate chips. I prefer dark chocolate, that gives a little bit for crunch.
5 Start assembling the Tiramisu. In a container, put a layer of lady fingers after quickly dipping them into the coffee. I usually dip just one side since I don't like when tiramisu is too soggy. Note that you can make one big tiramisu, or several small ones.
6 Put a layer of the cream so it completely covers the lady fingers. Sprinkle chocolate bits on top of it.
7 Repeat the last two steps, alternating layers of lady fingers and cream. In the last cream layer, instead of chocolate bits, use fine dark chocolate powder, with the help of a little sieve, cover the entire surface of the cream.
8 Your tiramisu is ready. Move it to the fridge till it's the moment to actually serve it.
