Easy Big City Espresso Tiramisu Recipe

Posted by Steph on Tuesday in Coffee Recipe | Short Link

As promised, here’s our favorite, even-I-can-do-it, Tiramisu recipe…
the cinnamon is optional – I like it, but some folks say it confuses their tongue;
I think it might be the smell that throws them off….Enjoy!

[adapted from the Frugal Gourmet]

Espresso, or extra-strength Big City coffee, 1/2 cup, tepid
sugar, 1/2 cup
brandy, 1/4 cup
egg yolks, 2
mascarpone cheese, 1 pound
ladyfingers, 1/2-pound package
semisweet chocolate, 4 ounces shaved
ingredients: icing

whipping cream, fresh, 1 cup
vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon
powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons
ingredients: garnishes

cocoa powder, for dusting
cinnamon powder, for LIGHT dusting (optional)
shaved chocolate


Line the inside of a loaf pan with large sheet wax paper.
Stir espresso, sugar and brandy in mixing bowl until sugar dissolves. Reserve 1/3 cup.
Whisk egg yolks into this, and add the cheese. Whisk until smooth.
One at a time, soak ladyfingers in reserved coffee (don’t oversoak).
Place crosswise in pan, trim if necessary, and completely layer bottom.
Spread on half of cheese mixture, then 1/2 of shaved chocolate.
Repeat with ladyfingers, then remaining cheese, then rest of chocolate.
Cover with remaining ladyfingers.
Bring up flaps of wax paper, Wrap pan in plastic wrap and refrigerate 6 hours.
When serving, invert pan on serving platter, tapping bottom to remove “loaf.” Remove paper.

Dust with shaved chocolate.

Makes 1-8 servings ;)
