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

    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue 
    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.)
