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

    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      It is too bad the doctor didn't advise you to take the blood tests before going gluten free.  There is a chance they could still be positive.....  But a good chance that being gluten-free for weeks will make them negative.   I Have not seen any medical evidence that Celiac disease is caused  by any other disease. It is a genetic auto immune disease.     Perhaps you should read some info from reliable source s like the Univ of Chicago Celiac Center?   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-much-gluten-should-be-consumed-prior-to-being-screened-for-celiac-disease/
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.  I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...  
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Welcome Jane! If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten.  Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results.  Here's more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky.  How often do you check your blood sugar?  Do you have a meter?   This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ I hope you feel better soon! 
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Hello. This is my first post. I am at my wits end at this point. I've been experiencing some pretty crazy symptoms and although I don't have a diagnosis yet, I suspect I may have Celiac. A few months ago I threw up after eating some pasta, I felt like I was going to pass out actually and it felt like I was going to die! I thought it was food poisoning..  Then I had some VERY BAD fatigue... I was driving once and I literally wanted to get out of the car and lie down on the pavement! It happened again about 3 weeks ago, I was in the store and fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks.. I had to leave!  I have been trying to lose weight so I stopped eating all wheat, bread, etc.... well what happened truly scared me. I take Metformin for PCOS/pre-diabetes by the way. Anyway, I woke up had something to eat and an hour later felt like I was going to collapse. My heart was beating so fast, thought I was having a heart attack! I went to the doctor and I nearly passed out again in the office, they gave me some sugar to bring up my blood sugar and then I felt okay. My neck feels swollen, and like there is something in my throat...  So I've been off gluten/wheat/bread/pasta..etc. for about 2 weeks. At first I felt kind of okay, hmmm... but now I am entering week 3 and I feel like I'm dying! The hunger is still bad... although not as horrendous as before stopping gluten... but the hunger just doesn't want to calm down. I eat and less than an hour later I'm hungry again.  Can someone provide some advice, thoughts, anything at this point that can help me figure out what to do next... I'm losing my mind and I feel so depressed    
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Okay then you have a clean grain mill & can go to town. I have only done rice in mine because I found that either my husband or myself don't really car for the consistency or flavors imparted by things like coconut flour, nut flours, pea or bean flours. Mostly the hubs is the big stick in the wheel. I like nut flours but he doesn't. For rice flours, I would say it's cheaper to mill them but it's also messier & more time consuming. I understand my NutriMill is far less messy than most millers (according to reviews) but it's still messy. In fact, I take it outside when I'm going to use it & let the mess be out there until all the grinding is done. So for me, it's a trade off & I would say about even steven.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
