A classic Italian Tiramisu recipe with minimal, simple ingredients that can easily be made gluten free. Non-alcoholic.
  • 17 oz Mascarpone cheese
  • ⅔ cup white sugar
  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 1-2 cups coffee
  • 20-24 Ladyfingers
  • cocoa, for dusting
  1. Brew coffee and set aside.
  2. In one bowl place the egg white, and beat with a hand held mixer until perfectly whipped solid. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl place the sugar and egg yolk. Beat together with a hand held mixer.
  4. Add the Mascarpone cheese to the egg yolk bowl, and beat together with a hand-held mixer.
  5. Then, add in the egg white bowl to the egg yolk bowl. Mix it together by hand from the bottom of the bowl to the top, until it's fully combined.
  6. Build your tiramisu in a glass dish by spreading a thin layer of the cream on the bottom, then dunking the Ladyfingers in your coffee that you previously set aside, fully cover the Ladyfingers with cream mixture, add another layer of the Ladyfingers soaked in coffee, and add a final layer of cream.
  7. Once built, cover, and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  8. When you're ready to serve sprinkle liberally with cocoa (or cacao powder), and serve.
The egg whites part is, by far, the trickiest. If you don't get it right and it doesn't fluff perfectly the way Ceci got it to fluff, your Tiramisu will be runny and flop. My solution? I actually **skipped** the egg whites, and the Tiramisu still worked (and tasted) perfect!
