About this recipe:The yummiest dessert ever, and very easy to make. One serving is not enough, believe me! Don't substitute double cream for the mascarpone: there is no tiramisu without mascarpone. And use the best quality coffee.
3 egg yolks
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 teaspoons (10ml) vanilla extract
1 1/8 cups mascarpone cheese
24 ladyfinger (savoiardi) biscuits
1 1/2 cups (375ml) brewed coffee
1 tablespoon cocoa
Directions Prep:15min › Ready in:15min
In a medium bowl, beat yolks with sugar and vanilla until smooth and pale yellow. Fold mascarpone into yolk mixture and set aside.
Dip ladyfingers briefly in coffee and arrange 12 of them in the bottom of a 20x20cm dish. Spread half the mascarpone mixture over the biscuits. Repeat with remaining biscuits and mascarpone, then cover and chill for 1 hour. Sprinkle with cocoa just before serving.
