For as long as I can remember I have loved Tiramisu, but I have never made it at home before. I looked up a few recipes and it seemed easy enough. After a few days searching for ingredients I had everything I needed to make a classic Italian Tiramisu.
After a long nap, I dived in.
I started by separating 3 eggs. There are many techniques for this but I use the technique my mother taught me. Crack the egg in half, and slowly and carefully pass the yoke back and forth between the two halfway until all the whites have fallen off. Then set the yoke in a separate bowl.
Once I had three yokes, I added 1/4 cup of sugar and started whipping. Once the mixture was light yellow and creamy I set it aside.
Then I folded in the mascarpone cheese. And whipped until there were no more lumps.
Seeing that I didn’t have an electric mixer, I thought maybe a blender would do the trick.
I used some instant coffee to make some very strong coffee, with a little sugar. Once this had cooled I added it to a wide Tupperware along with 2 shots of dark rum.
Once I had an even layer of fingers, I poured in the mascarpone mixture. But to my dismay… The fingers began to float. I don’t think that’s supposed happen. So I added more lady fingers.
Some cool whip, that barely covered it. And a touch of cocoa powder.
I don’t consider this a success, so there no recipe. If you wanna try this yourself just Google a recipe and follow their directions not mine.
