Tiramisu fait-maison

during the holidays, i had quite a lot of energy for cooking and baking and so i decided to make some Tiramisu out of the blue.

cream and vanilla extract
all whipped up to the right consistency
add the mascarpone into the batter with eggs, sugar and cooked milk which had been refrigerated for at least an hour

i didn’t realize though, that it was quite a complicated recipe. but i was really into doing it so i decided to get on with it anyway, despite the hard work.

they call these Lady Fingers in the English-speaking world
layer with the biscuits dipped in coffee, then the whipped cream and batter, then repeat
i had to improvise with the scotch since i didn’t have rhum in the kitchen

Tiramisu is originally from Italy and it literally means “pick me up”. i guess it got the name from the ingredients — rhum and coffee, which will literally pick your spirits up when you are feeling a bit less hyper and in need of waking up.

dip the biscuits in brewed coffee, be careful not to dip them too much or they will break
et voila! now it’s ready to be covered with unsweetened cocoa powder

i found the recipe here, if you’re interested to try it out for yourself.

i wanted to put some raspberries on top, but i couldn’t find any at the grocery, so i just made do with some apricots.

i hope you all have a great Chinese New Year holiday… and Gong Xi Fa Cai to all of you who celebrate the Lunar New Year!
