Here is the delicious “Chocolate Tiramisu Cake”, this the recipe only for two members. I used mini spring pan, it helps to remove the tiramisu perfectly. Substitute any other cream cheese or ricotta, instead of mascarpone cheese. Serve it with fruits & enjoy !!
Bon Appetite !!
Granulated sugar – 1/8 cup + 1 tbsp (as per sweetness)
Mascarpone Cheese, soften (room temperature) – 4 oz
Heavy whip cream – 100 ml
Egg yolks, large (room temperature) – 1 nos.
Brewed Espresso or any strong coffee – 1 cup
Savoiardi / Ladies fingers biscuit – 4-5 nos.
Vanilla extract – 1 tsp
Cocoa powder – 1 tbsp + for dusting
Any dark chocolate bar for garnishing
In a saucepan, bring water to boil, then reduce heat to simmer.
Keep a mixing bowl that will fit over the top of the pan, but the pan should not sink all the way.
Add the separated egg yolks (room temperature) in a mixing bowl, add 1/8 cup sugar & whisk until yolks turned to pale yellow in color.
Cook over simmering heat, and use the rubber spatula to scrap the bowl.
Cover the mixture with plastic wrap & refrigerate until cool.
In a mixing bowl, combine whipping cream, vanilla extract & remaining tablespoon sugar and whip until not quite stiff (over stiffing lead to butter) using hand mixer.
Add the soften room temperature mascarpone cheese, to the chilled egg yolk mixture & mix it using hand mixture on low speed or fold it with spatula.
Fold the whipped cream mixture to the cheese & egg yolk mixture by using spatula.
Sieve the coco powder to the mixture & fold it slowly with spatula.
Cover it with the plastic wrap & refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Keep the brewed espresso in a separate bowl.
Now arrange the ladies finger in single layer in the mini spring pan , by dipping in espresso mixture.
Spread half the mascarpone / cream / Zabaglion mixture over the ladyfingers. Dust some cocoa powder on top of the cheese filling.
Repeat with remaining cookies and cream mixture.
Cover and chill it for 6 hours or overnight in refrigrator.
Sprinkle with grated dark chocolate just before serving & enjoy !!!
Instead of coca powder, temper the ¼ cup of dark chocolate while cooking the egg yolk.
To enrich the chocolate flavor add a ½ tsp of instant coffee powder / brewed in egg yolk mixture.
For vegan version, avoid egg & follow the remaining procedure.
