I love tiramisu, but I always wondered if it only works with amaretto. As I recently discovered the tastyness of Egg liqueur I thought why not give it a try making a tiramisu with it. The result was pretty awsome! So I definelty have to share it here on my blog.
Making Tiramisu is pretty easy, the only thing is that you need a bit of patience since it has to rest in the fridge for a significant amount of time. But I think its always worth the wait!
For the Egg liqueur Tiramisu you will need:
- 500 g mascarpone
- 4 tablespoons Sugar
- 200 ml Coffee with a bit of brown sugar
- 50 ml Cream
- 4 Eggs (only the yolk)
- 40 ml Egg liqueur
- 40 ladyfingers
- a bit of Cocoa to garnish
- one large dish
Together with the sugar beat the egg yolks until foamy. Add the egg liqueur and the mascarpone. Now carefully fold under the cream. If you like you can also add strawberries cut into little pieces. The next step is to make the first layer of ladyfingers in a large dish. Soak them with coffee and add the filling on top of it. Then continue with the second layer and as a finish garnish with cocoa. Let it cool for 8-24 hours in the fridge. Before serving garnish the top again with cocoa.
Enjoy it with vanilla ice-cream and strawberries or just on its own 😉
