Tiramisu Thursday

Tiramisu, a very easy to make Italian dessert.

This dessert consists of very simple ingredients such as:

  • Marscapone
  • Egg yolk
  • Egg whites
  • Sugar
  • Lady fingers
  • Cocoa powder
  • Coffee

Personally, I love coffee and mocha cakes, drinking lattes, and anything that has to do with caffeine! 😉

If you share this same interest, you’ll love tiramisu. The recipe that i used for this is from a video on YouTube , I found that this was the easiest recipe but it was also kind of confusing as he does not thoroughly explain the whole process.

 

Make sure yo have all of the proper ingredients (including sugar, I forgot to add it in this picture) :P

Quickly dip your lady fingers into 2 cups of coffee one at a time. It's important that you don't keep them in there for too long because they get soggy very quickly.

Line up your coffee dipped lady fingers into a container, then place some of the marscapone mixture over them, spread it evenly. Once you have done that, sprinkle some cocoa power over it. Continue these steps with the second layer.

Leave your tiramisu in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, then it's ready to eat.  Be aware, cocoa powder can be a bit bitter to some people, try not to top it off with too much!
