One of the first things that my husband
cooked made for me shortly after we met was Tiramisù!
It made sense therefore that in preparing recipes for the Lavazza UK Wimbledon challenge, that he show me how to make it for Bambina. Her very first, very own tasty Tiramisù!
In Italy there are versions of this dessert for children, usually made by dunking the sponge fingers into chocolatey milk. For Bambina’s Tiramisù I used decaffeinated Lavazza coffee.
What you need:
500g of Mascarpone cheese
4 fresh eggs
400g of Savoiardi biscuits
120g of sugar
6 coffee cups of Lavazza Decaffeinato
What you do:
Pour the coffee into a bowl and let it cool down (I like the coffee without sugar so that the Tiramisù is not too sweet, but you can sweeten it if you like)
Separate the egg yolks and whites and then mix the yolks with the sugar until a stiff creamy consistency
Mix the egg whites until they become firm
Add the Mascarpone cheese to the egg yolks and mix until smooth
Add the egg white to the Mascarpone mix, whisk until smooth
Dunk the Savoiardi biscuits in the coffee (wet them well without soaking them) and layer them inside the bowl
Pour the Tiramisu’ cream on top of your soaked Savoiardi biscuits and level it out with a spatula
Add a sprinkling of angel dust, urh, I mean, chocolate cocoa using a sieve
Add another layerer of soaked Savoiardi biscuits and Tiramisu’ cream until the bowl is almost full
Cover by sprinkling angel dust, urh, I mean cocoa
Chuck your Tiramisu’ in the fridge for a couple of hours so that its sets
All you need to polish off a beautiful dessert is a beautiful daughter!
Buon appetito Bambina!
