Tiramisu

I have used this recipe for 16 years. It is adapted from The Culinary Institute of America's collection.
The first time I made it as a newlywed, hubs said “Sorry, babe. Doesn't look like much”, :o and I was crushed....but he and our guests ate the entire thing that night! And it has been a favorite ever since.
Since then, whenever I create anything new, he teases me with
“ Sorry, babe, doesn't look like much!”
This guarantees it will be a hit. :)

To adapt it to gluten-free, use Scharr Brand ladyfingers or some other gluten-free ladyfinger cake OR make your own. There are many suggestions on the internet.

This clever kiddo makes them!

http://www.celiactee...ee-ladyfingers/

Makes 8-10 servings.

Espresso syrup

Sugar - 2 ounces
Water - 2 ounces
Espresso, brewed and hot – 6 ounces
Brandy - 2 ounces

Filling

Egg yolks - 4
Sugar - 3 ounces
Marsala, sweet - 3 ounces
Marscapone – 8 ounces
Whipped cream – 8 ounces

Finishing

Lady Fingers – 3 dozen
Whipped Cream, sweetened – 8 ounces
Cinnamon - 1 tablespoon
Cocoa powder – 1 tablespoon
Powdered sugar – 1 tablespoon

Optional, but nice—chocolate shavings.

(1) For syrup: Combine sugar, water, coffee and brandy. Cool.
(2) For filling: Combine the yolks, sugar, and marsala. Beat in a stainless bowl over a water bath (140 degrees F/60 degrees C) until thickened.
(3) Remove yolk mixture from the heat, and beat in a mixer on second speed until cold.
(4) Fold in smooth marscapone and whipped cream.
(5) Brush lady fingers liberally with syrup. (I wet them pretty good!) place in alternating layers in
a pan with the filling and refrigerate overnight.
(6) To finish: spread the sweetened whipped cream over the top. (I use some sugar and vanilla in mine, but you can use almond extract if you wish)
(7) Combine the cinnamon, cocoa powder and powdered sugar and sprinkle over the top.
(8) Decorate with chocolate shavings, if you like.

Just reading it and I am nearly full! You can manipulate me all you want from now on. :)
I would risk eating chocolate (migraines) for this, carob won't cut it.

Thank you.



You're so welcome. No, carob does not work in this one, hon. Sorry.

And the booze? totally necessary. :)

I don't drink alcohol or coffee, I gave both up 5 years ago. But I'll be dead before I give up tiramisu. Now I think I need to make some again, I guess it's my turn to lose the pants. :lol:

:lol: yes, this dessert is a pants-buster.

Because of the zabaione (the Marsala, sugar and eggs mixture) and the espresso, you would have to "Un-GIVE-up" those to have this treat.

I hate to be the one that led you astray, however.

It's Sora's fault anyway. She asked. :)

You didn't lead me astray. Tiramisu did that all by itself. I don't think there's ever been another food as horrifically tempting and decadent. The very first gluten free recipe I googled was for lady fingers. Not pizza, or bread or anything else, my first thought was dear God.... don't take tiramisu from me.

I "un-give-up" every year for my birthday, the difference now is I have to make it myself. The good and bad of this is that no one I know (within 2000 miles) will eat it. This means I am forced to eat the whole thing myself, and I assure you it is a terrible burden. (For my pants. :lol: )

I know at least 5 people (right off the top of my head) who will travel to see you for your birthday and eat it with you.

You will have to add one more to the party. I just DIE for tiramisu. Luv it even more than the English love their trifle. And if you have ever had tiramisu lovingly made for you by someone living in the Florence Hills, it (I have to say it :rolleyes: ) tastes even better. I'd walk through three (international) :lol: airports for a tiramisu. And I wear stretch pants :P

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: fantastic!


Adalaide told me to "take your pants off "(yes, she really did :) ) on the " What's for dinner thread?" when I said I had started gaining weight back.

My first tiramisu (a girl always remembers her first one) was back in 1985 with my best friend, who is a chef and we had it with a glass of port. She insisted I try it and ...it was pure heaven.
