Awesome Eid holidays…perfectly home alone…5 days of the week!
I actually planned to cook a lot more than just this, but figured it would be a waste for simply one single person, not to mention the insane calories I would have to put up with. So for now I decided to keep it to a couple of dishes – the Tiramisu and maybe my version of Chicken curry for later.
Its hard to find an original version of Italian Tiramisu when there are millions of recipes out there, and in particular I fell in love with it at Olivella Restaurant. Anyways I figured out why not “wordpress” it? There are brilliant bloggers out there with a choice of recipes to choose from and I came across “projectmasterchef“. His recipes are awesome, precise and meticulous presentation techniques, I should think its worth a visit.
*A: This version contains alcohol.
I used half the contents as I wanted to try a little, and I did not have the wine, but the rest of it is followed from his recipe and it goes like this:
180 ml of double shot espresso (I made it using 180 ml water with 3 tsp of Bru coffee powder)
4 tbsp Dark Rum
Finger Biscuits – 10 fingers
130 g Mascarpone Cheese
8 tbsp Brown Sugar
Cocoa powder for dusting
In a separate bowl make coffee liqueur by mixing coffee espresso, rum and 2 tbsp of brown sugar. Soak the fingers in this for few minutes until all the liquid is absorbed.
Separate egg yolks from egg whites, and beat them individually. The egg whites to be beaten till they form firm peaks, after which add the remainder sugar and mascarpone cheese. Whisk again, and finally incorporate the beaten egg yolks. The final mixture should have a thick creamy consistency.
In a glass or serving dish, layer the soaked fingers with the creme pudding, and allow to set for 8 hours in the refrigerator. Dust with cocoa powder before serving.
