Tiramisu (without Alcohol)

Tiramisu is an Italian dessert layered with savoirdi biscuits dipped in coffee and mascarpone cheese flavored with cocoa. This picture is taken over a year ago; that is ; during last year's eid; wanted to take a better picture to post it in my blog; but I donno why I had turned to be lazy these days that I couldn't click one yet .:(

Tiramisu is usually flavored with liquor, but this recipe is one without it. I did try two other recipes before this, but this one is my favorite and so sharing with you all. This is adapted from Shabs Cuisine a blog owned by one of my friend, of whom I had been inspired of. I had tried almost all of her dessert recipes and Masha Allah ,they turned out to be good too...


Ingredients:
4 eggs separated
500 gms mascarpone cheese
2 cups heavy cream/double cream
2 packets of sponge fingers/savioardi/lady's fingers (It depends on the dish u use)
14 tbs powdered sugar
2 tbsp coffee
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbs cocoa powder

Method:

1. Prepare 2 cups of coffee by adding boiling water to 2 tbs of coffee+2 tbs of sugar. Let it cool.

2.Beat the egg yolk with half the sugar. Double boil this mixture for about 10 mts.that is, boil some water in a pan & keep the bowl of egg yolk mixture on top of it & go stirring the mixture for 10 mts while the flame is simmering; ie; till the mixture turns pale yellow. Add vanilla essence to this and keep it aside to cool.
5. Whip the Cream along with the remaining sugar until peaks form and keep it aside. Don’t whip it for too long because it will start forming into butter. You can use wire whisk or egg beater for this.

6. Mix the mascarpone cheese in this whipped cream and mix well until no lumps appear.

7. Whip the egg whites until peaks form.

8.Fold in egg whites and whipped cream into the egg yolk mixture. Dont over mix it..

9.Soak half the biscuits in the espresso and layer it at the bottom of a springform cake tin or a pudding dish. Don’t keep the sponge fingers in coffee for long time since they tend to absorb liquid too quickly. Just dab both sides in coffee and that should be more than enough.

10.Add half the egg-cream mixture to the soaked biscuits. You can add chocolate shavings here.
11.Then layer again with savoirdi biscuits dipped in coffee and then remaining egg cream mixture.Refrigerate for atleast 2 hrs.
12.Dust cocoa powder over and decorate Tiramisu with grated chocolate,garnish tiles and biscuits. Serve immediately.
