How to prepare Tiramisu:
To prepare the tiramisu start from the eggs (very fresh): carefully separate the egg whites from the yolks (1), remembering that to whisk well the egg whites will not have to show any trace of yolk. Whip the egg yolks with electric mixer, along with half of the sugar (2) till the mixture has become clear and frothy (3),
with the whisk still rotating, you can add the mascarpone, little by little (4). Once you have incorporated all the cheese, you will have a thick and compact cream; keep it aside (5). Clean the whips very well and go to whisk the egg whites pouring the remaining sugar a little at a time (6).
You will have to beat the snow well (7). Take a spoonful of egg whites and pour into the bowl with the egg yolks and sugar and mix vigorously with a spatula, so you will dilute the mixture (8). Then proceed to add the remaining part of egg whites, slightly at a time by mixing very gently from top to bottom (9).
Once ready, spread a generous spoonful of cream on the bottom of a 30x20cm baking dish and distributed well (11). Take the cold sweetened coffee (12) (as per your preference), then soak (13) for a few moments the savoiardi n the cold coffee.
As you spread the biscuits soaked in cream, all in one verse, so as to obtain a first layer (14) on which you will distribute a part of the mascarpone cream (15).
Also in this case you must level it carefully so as to have a smooth surface (16). And continue to distribute the sponge fingers soaked in coffee (17), then make another layer of cream (18).
Level the surface (19) and sprinkle with bitter cocoa powder and leave to harden in the refrigerator for a couple of hours (20). Your tiramisu is ready to be tasted (21)!
