Tiramisu

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.celiacteen.com/2010/gluten-free-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.

Richard, SA1937 (Sylvia), Gemini, LOVE2TRAVEL and me.

No, wait 7, Colleen and apparently, SORA who asked for this recipe in the first place.

Unless, you WANT to go pantless and enjoy it yourself, in which case, I say...YOU GO GIRL!! :lol:

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

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.

Well, I happen to need to gain a few pounds so I don't need to take my pants off but I'll join the party! I have only had tiramisu twice in my life & while it was good it was not to die for but I sensed inherently that I had NOT eaten good examples of it. I have read recipes for it & I KNOW it's right up my alley! I was rather frustrated that the ones I had did not live up to my expectations. Neither of them were home made. I never made any myself b/c it's NOT the hubs thing at all so i would have had to eat the whole thing by myself. No, I couldn't have. I would pop like a balloon!smile.gif

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy. View the full article
    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
