How to make it

  • Lay the first layer of ladyfingers in a pan; soak lightly, using about half the coffee.
  • Mix well sugar and egg yolks; add mascarpone, Marsala, and liquor. Blend well. Beat egg whites until fluffy, then carefully fold this into the prior mix. Spoon half this mix onto the ladyfingers, then lay the second layer, soak, and cover with the remaining mix. Sprinkle with grated chocolate.
  • Let stand in the refrigerator for 1 hour to overnight; serve cold.
  • The amount of coffee is most important to how wet the tiramisu is. My friends and I seem to like a wetter tiramisu, so I would use 2 dl or even a bit more, especially if the tiramisu was not going to stand for very long. If you're leaving it for a long time, less coffee will be sufficient, since the topping mixture will soak into the ladyfingers.

    One of my few really unavoidable "pitfalls" when it comes to dessert ... while I can often politely say no to "duff", as my Dad calls it, I can NEVER resist an authentic tiramisu, so thanks for sharing a great recipe!
