Tiramisù is a dessert of Italian cuisine, one of the most loved and made in the world. The origins of tiramisù are very uncertain and several cities claim its authorship. It is a very simple dessert to prepare, its mascarpone cream is irresistible, so tasty and velvety, between layers of soft ladyfingers soaked in coffee. In some versions we also find Marsala. This Tiramisù can also be made without dairy products using the ingredients in brackets. The version I propose is with custard instead of raw eggs.

Cook’s Tips

For the version with pasteurized eggs, you can proceed with the preparation of a pate à bombe instead of the custard: pour the water and sugar into a saucepan and bring to 121 ° C. Meanwhile, pour the egg yolks into a bowl and start whipping. Pour in the sugar syrup and continue whipping until cool. The cream will be thick and fluffy. Ingredients: 5 teaspoon of water, 5 tablespoon of sugar, 2 yolks

Recipe variations
