I've been wanting to make Tiramisu for a while now and I was quite happy to have an occasion to make dessert when we invited the neighbours over for dinner.

There are so many variations of this classic desert.
I spent almost an hour looking for an 'easy' version online and in my cookbooks.
Eventually I settled for this recipe.
It was the right choice.

The recipe was for one big Tiramisu but I decided to make 6 individual portions in glasses. Good idea. Worked like a treat and tasted great!

This is definitely going to be my basic Tiramisu recipe.
Wonder what I will experiment with next...

Here is a link to the recipe by EmmaMedu.

Here is a copy of the recipe:

Easy Tiramisu: The Best Tiramisu Recipe

250g mascarpone
120g ladyfingers to cover the bottom of the bowl
3 fresh eggs, separate 3 egg yolks and 2 egg whites
70g brown sugar
0,5 cup Espresso coffee
1 tablespoon rum / Amaretto
Cocoa powder

Make the espresso and put it in the bowl where you will soak ladyfingers.
Pour one tablespoon of rum / amaretto and let it cool.
At the same time, mix egg yolks and sugar in the separate bowl.
Beat the egg whites until peaks form.
Add mascarpone to the mixture of egg yolks and sugar.
Add slowly beaten egg whites with the wooden spoon.
Mix everything to make thick mixture.
Soak the ladyfingers in the coffee mixture.
Break the ladyfingers into bite size pieces so that they will fit into the bottom of a glass.
Cover them with thick yellow mixture. Repeat with another layer of ladyfingers and mascarpone.
At the end, sprinkle the whole surface with cocoa powder.
Put it in the fridge to cool for 24 hours.
