Classic Italian Tiramisù
It is the Italian dessert par excellence, the most loved ever. It probably originated in Treviso from "sbatudin", a poor and energetic dessert made from egg yolk whipped with sugar, intended mainly for children, the elderly and convalescents. At the end of the 1960s, the pastry chefs and restaurateurs of Treviso were working to bring out a truly special dessert whose name finally became “Tiramisù”.
The ingredients are mascarpone, eggs, sugar, ladyfingers, coffee and cocoa powder. It is necessary to whip egg yolks and sugar, then add the mascarpone and the whipped egg whites. Soak the ladyfingers in the coffee and alternate with the layers of egg cream and mascarpone, sprinkling with cocoa at the end. Key point, the cream. Which must remain soft and abundant, without being completely absorbed by the ladyfingers.
The classic recipe neither include liqueurs nor chocolate, if you prefer to add liqueur, Marsala is the most suitable. today it is one of the great classics of Italian cuisine: alternative versions abound, like those with sponge cake, Pavesini or other types of biscuit, strawberries, ice cream, yogurt.

Ingredients (servings 6-8):

4Medium chicken eggs at room temperature
4Spoons of cast sugar
250 grMascarpone
1 packLadyfingers
Bitter cocoapowder
Coffee (Lightly sweetened)


In a bowl beat the egg yolks with the sugar until creamy, add the mascarpone and mix together. Separately, with a mixer whisk the egg whites until stiff, add gradually to the mixture stirring delicately by hand so as not to disassemble the volume. Prepare the coffee and lightly sweeten it, if you wish to add some liqueurs do it now. Deep the ladyfingers into coffee and put in a glass alternating layers of mascarpone cream. When full, add a last layer of cream and sprinkle with cocoa. Let it rest in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours before serving.
