New tiramisu

New tiramisu
This new version of tiramisu is easier, and in my opinion much better. You will certainly appreciate, like me, the light creamy taste, this time presented in brandy goblets.

Step by step recipe

In the bowl of a mixer, add 250 g Mascarpone, 250 g cream, 2 Eggs, 100 g caster sugar and 3 tablespoons Amaretto.

Stage 2 - 4 min.
New tiramisu
Whip for 3 or 4 minutes, until getting something like a stiff chantilly cream.

Stage 3 - 7 min.

Put a first layer of cream into each glass. You can use a forcing bag, and then level with a spoon.

Stage 11
New tiramisu
If you don't have brandy goblets, you can use others, possibly taller ones. Then you could make more layers, like for this passion fruit and Macvin du Jura Tiramisu, delicious!
Tiramisu is better the following day, so don't hesitate to make in advance and keep it in the fridge, protected from air by plastic film. In this case it's better to add the final cocoa powder layer just before serving.

If you love chocolate, you can add a cocoa layer on each layer of cream as well as on top.

Tiramisu can be made in several flavours, afficionados will say that it is no longer a tiramisu of course, but it's really good.

Fruit tiramisu: replace coffee + Amaretto with a mix of 75% fruit coulis (fruit purée) + 25% sugar syrup to get something liquid enough to soak your biscuits, and add a layer of fruit coulis on each layer of cream.

You can also change alcohol, by replacing Amaretto by Macvin du Jura for example.
Several days in the fridge, covered by a plastic film.
Home made, after Nicolas Cantrel, and warmly dedicated to Brigitte.
