How to Make Traditional Tiramisù
- Separate yolks from whites. In a bowl, mix the yolks with half the sugar, until pale and creamy. Add the mascarpone and mix thoroughly until soft and smooth. Beat the egg whites in a stiff foam, adding the remaining sugar halfway through the process. Fold in the whites with the mascarpone mix, and reserve
- Spread half the mascarpone cream over the layer of biscuits. Sprinkle cocoa powder on top, and start with a second layer of coffee-soaked biscuits. Finish with the remaining mascarpone cream and more cocoa powder. Cover with cling film and rest in the fridge for about three hours before serving.
