This no-fail “pick-me-up” dessert layers espresso-soaked ladyfingers and creamy mascarpone. Topped with cocoa, it’s an aromatic finish to an Italian menu. If you don’t have a sieve at home, poke holes through the plastic bag of cocoa. Gently shake it over the tiramisu to decorate.

TIRAMISU WITH ITALIAN ESPRESSO


Step 1

In two small bowls, separate 4 eggs into whites and yolks and set aside.

Step 2

In a small bowl, beat mascarpone until soft with a large spoon. Remove 1 tablespoon from sugar and reserve for later use. In a separate medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the egg yolks with the remaining sugar until the mixture is pale yellow and fluffy. Gradually beat in the softened mascarpone.

Step 3

In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites with salt until they form stiff peaks. Using a spatula, fold egg whites into mascarpone mixture, by slowly mixing together the light and heavy ingredients. Gently “cut” through the center of both mixtures, bring the heavy mascarpone mixture to the top, and the light egg whites to the bottom. Use a “down-across-up-and-over” motion to do this, ensuring mixtures are incorporated without adding air bubbles.

Step 4

Boil 1/2 cup water; pour over instant espresso powder in a heatproof bowl. Add reserved tablespoon of sugar to coffee and mix; set aside. Line 1 large serving dish (or 6 to 8 individual ones) with the ladyfingers, covering as much surface area as possible.

Step 5

Sprinkle 2/3 of the brewed espresso over ladyfingers so they are moist and saturated. Cover with half the egg mixture. Make another layer of ladyfingers, moisten with remaining 1/3 espresso liquid and cover with remaining egg mixture. Chill for at least 1 hour.

Step 6
