Tiramisu which literally means Pick Me Up, One of the famous italian desert. If you taste it once, i am sure you will pick it up wherever you get a chance too. It is that good. Many of us think that making this at home is quite complicated, but it is not. If you follow this recipe, you can make a fairly decent tiramisu right in your kitchen.
Normally they use egg yolks and alcohol in tiramisu, But i left both of them and made a eggless version. You can never say it is completely eggless because of the ladyfinger, they have eggs in them. But if you want to make it completely eggless, instead of ladyfinger, you can use any eggless cakes. It will still taste good.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
(My 1 cup measures 240 ml)
1)Dont overwhip the cream and mascarpone cheese because it will make the separate and curdle.
2)If you want it comepletely eggless, instead of ladyfinger, you can use any eggless sponge cake. It may not be the traditional, but still it will taste great.
3)You can leave out whipping cream in this recipe and just use the mascarpone cheese mix alone. But whipping cream makes the cream layer lighter and tastier.
4)You can make the coffee as strong as you like, you can even add few splashed of coffee liquor or any rum in the coffee liquid.
