Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 720 ml brewed coffee, cooled

  • 225 g mascarpone cheese

  • 5 eggs, separated
  • 400 g savoiardi biscuits

  • 113 g sugar, plus 2 tbsp or more for the coffee

  • 2 shots rum or Italian Marsala

    optional
  • Pinch salt

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 40 g shaved dark chocolate, to garnish

Instructions

  • First prepare the coffee and pour it in a bowl and allow to cool off, add 2 tablespoons sugar or sweeten to taste.

  • Mix the egg yolks with 45g sugar, and mix until you obtain a creamy light mixture. Work the mascarpone in a bowl using a wooden spoon, making sure you eliminate any lumps, then add the mascarpone to the sugar-egg mixture and continue to mix well.

  • In a separate bowl, mix the egg whites, pinch of salt, and the remaining sugar, until they reach a somewhat firm, but fluffy consistency, then add them to the mascarpone mixture. Stir in the rum, if using

  • Dip the savoiardi biscuits in the coffee, and one by one lay them flat into a tray, making sure you do not soak the biscuits, as you want to make sure they maintain their firmness. Once the first layer of biscuits has been laid out, spread a layer of the mascarpone cream on top, and dust with 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

  • Now, again, prepare another layer of coffee-dipped biscuits, cream and cocoa powder. Garnish the top of the cake with the shaved dark chocolate.

  • Cover the tray with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 3 hours so the flavors can marry and the tiramisu can settle.
