Ingredients for 1 cake
Separate the yolks from the whites in 2 separate bowls.
Add the sugar to the yolks. Whisk until the mixture starts to thicken. Optional: add vanilla extract
Add the mascarpone to the sugar/yolk mixture and mix again.
Optional: Add the amaretto (you can also add the amaretto to the coffee instead of the cream, up to you!)
Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and mix until peaks form.
In a large bowl, add the egg yolk/mascarpone mixture. Slowly incorporate the whites using a spatula, gently folding to mix.
Pour the coffee in a bowl and quickly dip the lady fingers on each side. Layer the lady fingers in a casserole dish (or a trifle bowl if you have one!). Tip: You can also make the tiramisu in individual ramekins or bowls.
Pour half the mascarpone mousse, spread it out using a spatula, add a second layer of lady fingers (dipped in coffee) and then add another layer of mousse.
Cover the tiramisu with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Tip: The best is to leave it in the fridge overnight.
Remove the tiramisu just before serving and dust with cocoa powder. Enjoy!
