Tiramisu is one of those no-fail classic desserts which everyone enjoys. Here is my version- very light and one that I have made several times over the years. You can make it in one large dish or in elegant shot glasses. If making individual glasses, just follow the same layering process. Hope your family and guests enjoy this as much as mine always do!!
What you need-
1 cup espresso
2 egg yolks
50 gms castor sugar
225 gms mascarpone cheese
115 gms whipped cream
2 tbsp Coffee liquor/Brandy/ Whiskey/Dark Rum (or to taste)
1 pack Savoiardi Cookies or vanilla sponge sheets, cut into fingers
Chocolate shavings for decor
Putting it all together-
Mix egg yolk and sugar with a whisk.
Add mascarpone and combine, breaking any lumps.
Add the whipped cream and combine gently.
Mix the espresso with the coffee liquor. Add 1/4 cup water and 1 tbsp sugar to this.
Add 2-3 tbsp of the espresso mix to the mascarpone mixture.
You will need a square/rectangle dish with adequate height. Dip each savoiardi cookie on both sides in the espresso mix and align to form the bottom layer.
Top with a layer of the mascarpone.
Repeat the above process for another layer of cookies and mascarpone.
Dust cocoa powder through a sieve and decorate with chocolate shavings
Chill in the fridge for at least 5-6 hours or overnight.
