Heavenly Tiramisu direct out of a bottle — simply genius
One of the best desserts in the world has to be a tiramisu made from scratch and served fresh and cool. After dinner indulgence doesn't get any better than this, right? Well, here's a new variation on the classic Italian dessert that will have raspberry fans drooling. And it's simple to boot! Ready to get started?
You will need:
- 1/2 lb mascarpone
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup cream
- 6 ladyfingers
- 7 oz raspberries
- 1 cup strong black coffee or espresso
- 18 oz milk chocolate, melted
- electric mixer
- 2 plastic bottles
- prep bowls
Divide the egg yolks from the whites and mix the yolks with the mascarpone and sugar.
Mix until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency.
In separate bowls, beat the egg whites with a handheld mixer until fluffy and the cream until it forms stiff peaks.
Carefully fold the whipped cream and the beaten egg whites in with the mascarpone.
Take two clean, empty plastic bottles and cut the end with the bottle top off each bottle about a third of the way down.
Then remove a lengthwise panel of each bottle. Again, one third should be about the right proportion, leaving two thirds of the sides intact. Slide one bottle inside the other so that you have a cylinder with an opening on one side.
Fill the cylinder with half of the mascarpone mixture.
Place the raspberries in a line in the center.
Dunk the ladyfingers one-by-one in the coffee and place gently on top of the raspberries.
Now add the rest of the mascarpone mixture. This time, place four coffee-soaked ladyfingers in the center and line each side with the remaining raspberries.
Freeze for a minimum of three hours so that everything can firm up nicely before serving. To prepare for serving, carefully remove the tiramisu from the plastic bottles.
Now for the pièce de résistance: coat completely with melted chocolate and let it set.
If desired, garnish with raspberries and confectioner's sugar. Now get ready to wow any waiting dinner guests!
Slice, serve and enjoy!
This dessert is so light and fluffy it never makes you feel overly full. Does that sound like an invitation to have another slice? Don't mind if I do!
