This authentic Italian tiramisu recipe will conquer the palates of your family and friends. It is a traditional dessert made of simple ingredients, such as eggs, sugar, mascarpone, Savoiardi biscuits, long black coffee and cocoa powder.
Prepare two cups of long black coffee and pour it into a deep dish. Set aside.
Separate four egg yolks from four egg whites in two different bowls.
Weigh 100 grams of icing sugar.
Beat the egg yolks with a hand held mixer and add 50 grams of icing sugar. Keep beating until the mixture gets foamy, pale yellow and the sugar has dissolved.
Wash the wire beaters thoroughly and beat the egg whites until stiff. Once they are stiff, add in 50 grams of icing sugar little by little while whisking.
Add the mascarpone cheese to the egg yolks. Whisk with the hand held mixer on low speed.
Add the meringue little by little into the yolk mixture. Mix both mixtures with a spatula with folding movements until combined. Then, pour in a tablespoon of rum and keep making folding movements from bottom to top until inegrated.
