It is fun experimenting around the kitchen. On any day that you would like to make your own desserts, you can actually make use of coffee pods you have in your pantry. How about a classic Tiramisu? Layers of coffee dipped ladyfingers with mascarpone cream. Yum! Let’s get started!
4 Intenso Coffee Capsules, full-bodied and strong
1/2 cup marsala (or another liquor of your choice)
1 jar of Broas or lady fingers
300ml whipping cream, lightly whipped
3 eggs, yolks and whites separated
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Cocoa powder, for dusting
Pour coffee and marsala into a shallow dish and set aside. Beat egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl until pale and thick. Add the mascarpone and whipped cream, mixing gently to combine. Beat egg whites in a medium bowl with electric beater until soft peaks form. Using a large metal spoon, gently fold the egg whites into the mascarpone mixture.
Dip enough lady fingers into the coffee mixture to cover the base of your ceramic dish of choice, ideally 9 square inch in size. You can choose to line the sides of the dish with the coffee dipped lady fingers for added accent. Cover the biscuits with one-third of the mascarpone mixture. Repeat layers 2 times, ending with the cream. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Dust generously with cocoa and serve.
TIP: Only dust with cocoa powder right before serving the dessert!
