Tri-dessert Days, Sinfully Wonderful
September 13, 2011 § 1 Comment
Today, I made tiramisu. Or, rather, today, I unveiled the tiramisu that I made yesterday. Tiramisu in Italy? Yes, now I can leave this world a happy and content girl.
I was hesitant because (a) I’ve never made/used Italian expresso instead of long coffee and (b) my Host doesn’t have a mixer… which means thirty minutes of heavy, uninterrupted manual whipping of the egg whites to get them to change from liquid to foam.
It turned out quite good, even though I forgot to sprinkle the second layer of ladyfingers with Amaretto- and I am a very big fan of using generous amounts of liquer in desserts 😉
5 eggs +500 grams of marscapone +100 grams of sugar + 6 expressos + some Amaretto + coco powder sprinkles = heaven.
This is what I ate for breakfast’s dessert (that would translate to a chocolate croissant followed by tiramisu, yes) and lunch’s dessert. After dinner tonight, I think that I will need to cool it down a notch. Maybe. Or maybe not.
