Tiramisu is a popular Italian dessert. Traditionally served in the afternoon as a "boost", tiramisu contains both caffeine and alcohol in a creamy cheese mixture served in layers. Tiramisu can be complex (featuring layering of different flavors and textures) or simplistic. This recipe does not use any eggs (cooked or raw) and alcohol-my version, and provides the simplest blend of ingredients to form a fast and tasty basic tiramisu.
Kalo mau googling around...walah walah ternyata banyak banget variasi resep tiramisu. Sampe bingung milihnya, dari yang dibuat dengan metode sangat simple sampe yang agak rumit. Yang pasti resep yang gue cari adalah yang tanpa telur. Berhubung di sini pun gak ada alkohol *katanya! katanya! padahal sih...* ya mau gak mau tiramisu-nya juga non alkohol. Tadinya uda mau nodong bos-nya Papin, minta seuprit jatah kahlua...xixixixiii...tapi ya sutralah, gak penting, gak ada alkohol tiramisunya pun jadi juga. Dan anak-anak bisa lebih bebas makan walopun gak boleh banyak-banyak juga karena kopi banget.
Pepy tossss dulu ah! Samaan lagi kita :D.
Basic Tiramisu (no egg and alcohol added-my version)
What you need :
First, start by assembling the ingredients. We'll need one pound of mascarpone cheese, a cup of heavy whipping cream, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 3 tablespoons rum (brandy also works well - skip), 20 lady's fingers (a light, oblong italian cookie with powdered sugar on one side), cocoa powder, a double shot (about 2 to 3 ounces) of espresso, 1/2 cup of prepared coffee, and shavings of unsweetened dark chocolate to top (skip).
How to make :
1. Chill whipping cream and bowl. Mix coffee and espresso and chill. Whisk the whipping cream until it reaches stiff peaks. This can be accomplished in a few minutes with an electric mixer or by hand (times will vary depending on arm strength and stamina).
2. Put the cheese, sugar, and brandy into a medium bowl and mix until smooth. Add more sugar or alcohol as desired.
3. Fold in the whipped cream to create the cheese mixture.
4. Soak lady fingers in espresso for a couple seconds, rotating to coat all sides. Place lady fingers side by side on bottom of a 8x8-in. pan.
5. Put half the cheese mixture on lady fingers in pan. Smooth with a spatula or spoon.
6. Sift cocoa powder liberally on surface of layer.
7. Apply second layer of lady fingers and remaining cheese.
8. Sift cocoa powder and half of chocolate shavings.
9. Cover in plastic wrap and chill.
10. To serve, use the remaining chocolate shavings by sprinkling a bit onto eight plates. Cut tiramisu into eight rectangles and serve on plates (or simply spoon them out).
