The reception back home in Switzerland was quite rainy and stormy. Reasons enough for me to indulge in reminiscences of beautiful, warm Italy – and what could be more suitable for this than a nice Italian dessert?
I dolci italiani are simply fantastic and the most famous dolce of all is, of course, the tiramisù (literally “pull me up”).
Here is a version which I adapted according to my liking. It is made without raw eggs and there is and extra chocolatey flavour thanks to the grated dark chocolate. Buon appetito!
Classic Tiramisù in a Glass (without eggs)
The Italian classic dessert served in a glass, which reveals its layers beautifully.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
- 1dl espresso
- 1,5dl cream
- 125g mascarpone
- 4 tbsp. muscovado sugar
- 12 ladyfingers
- ¼ of a bar of dark chocolate
- a bit of cocoa powder (to decorate)
- Prepare 4 glasses.
- Whisk the cream until stiff, stir in 3 tablespoons of muscovado sugar and the mascarpone.
- Add a tablespoon of sugar to the warm espresso. Let it cool down.
- If necessary, break the ladyfingers into smaller pieces (such as they fit in the glass). Soak them in espresso and put them into the glasses as the first layer.
- Put a layer of the mascarpone crème on top.
- Grate dark chocolate on the crème.
- Repeat steps 4-6 until the glass is full. Dust the last layer of mascarpone crème with cocoa powder.
- Keep the glasses refrigerated until you serve them. Buon appetito!
