Mr. Tiramisù

I do not know if I am a good lawyer but my tiramisù is definitely a masterpiece!

I want to dedicate this dessert to a very good friend of mine, Antonio, to celebrate his 30th birthday!

400 gr mascarpone
4 yolks
2 egg whites
80 gr sugar
Savoiardi (ladyfingers in English, boudoirs in French)
Coffee (preferably espresso)
Cocoa powder, unsweetened

In a large bowl beat yolks and sugar with electric beaters until pale, foamy and thick. In a different bowl beat the egg whites till soft peak form.

Using a spatula or a big wooden spoon add the mascarpone at room temperature and 2/3 tbs of cold coffee then gently fold the whipped egg whites in.

Dip the ladyfingers into the cold coffee and start the first layer into your serving dish (25x18cm) then add the cream another ladyfingers layer, topping with the cream. Put into the fridge at least 4 hours,  preferably overnight.

Dust generously with cocoa powder just before serving.

A special thanks to Veronika Knobova who took the pictures.
