delicate and light tiramisu dessert
Love a light and fun dessert? You will enjoy this delicious tiramisu recipe. It is not super sweet. And if you love coffee (or rum), this tiramisu is the perfect dessert.
We have found that you can use instant coffee or espresso to make the coffee.
You only need to brush the lady fingers into the rum/coffee mix. If you let them sit in it, be prepared for a kick of coffee and rum.
We’ve made this in a 8×8 dish, but you can use a round dish, 9×17, 9×9 or whatever you have on hand.
6 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
16 oz mascarpone cheese, room temp
1/3 cup espresso or strongly brewed coffee, room temp
2 tablespoons rum
2 – 3 ounce packages of lady finger cookies
1 tablespoon cocoa powder (unsweetened)
In a medium size sauce pan, add the eggs and sugar and whisk together. Whisk in the milk and cook on medium heat.
Continue to stir while heating so the mixture doesn’t clump.
Bring the mix to a boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat and let cool.
You can place in a covered bowl and let cool overnight as well.
In a large bowl, add the heavy cream and vanilla and beat until stiff peaks form and set aside.
Once cooked take the egg mix and add tot he marscapone, blending thoroughly.
In a smaller bowl, add the coffee and rum together.
