Classic Tiramisu step by step
- Make 2 espresso cups of coffee (strong coffee), set aside and leave to cool..
- Once the coffee has cooled down, mix the coffee and alcohol(s) in a deep glass proof oven dish together. Taste the mixture and adjust to preference (add more coffee or alcohol). Set aside..
- In two bowls, separate the egg yolks and egg whites. Place the egg whites in a mixing bowl. Whisk together the egg whites until it's slightly frothy. Then add the sugar a tablespoon at a time. Best egg whites until stiff peaks..
- Once egg whites are at stiff peaks stop whisking. Transfer the egg whites into a separate making bowl..
- Now wash the whisk or whisk attachment and mixing bowl. To the mixing bowl again, add the egg yolks and 3 tablespoons of sugar. Cream together eggs and sugar until pale in colour. Once incorporated add a vanilla extract and mix together again for 5 seconds..
- Add all of the mascarpone and ricotta to the mixing bowl and whisk. Once incorporated add Marsala. Whisk together again until mixture is smooth stop whisking. Tip: do not over whisk otherwise it will curdle and split. Taste it and adjust sweetness if necessary (add more sugar) and use a spatula to gently fold in the sugar..
- Then it's time to add the egg whites to the egg yolk and cheese mixture. Using a spatula add a small amount of egg white first. This helps to loosen the mixture. Fold in the egg whites and then add larger amounts of egg whites bit by bit. Ensuring the egg whites are fully incorporated into the mixture..
- Dip and soak the Italian biscuits into the coffee alcohol mixture for 3 seconds. Then quickly and gently transfer to an oven proof dish tray and layer at the bottom. Tip: the biscuits soak the coffee quickly, do not dip in too long otherwise becomes mushy..
- Then add the egg and cheese mixture next and generously dot over the biscuits. Use a spatula to spread and coat the biscuits. Repeat steps 8 & 9 until there is no more egg and cream cheese and coffee alcohol mixture left..
- Once the final layer has been done, smooth over with the spatula and cover with cling film. Place in the fridge for 6 hours or over night (best left overnight)..
- Once ready to eat and serve sift and dust the top of the tiramisu coco powder and grate over dark chocolate, amaretto and amaretto biscuit crumbs (optional)..
Add the mascarpone and half of the cognac or brandy, and beat well. With clean utensils, beat the egg whites until stiff. Here's how to make a classic tiramisu, step-by-step.
