Tiramisu

Procedure

Add 2 teaspoons of sugar and 4 tablespoons of rum to espresso. Cool it down for at least 3 hours in the fridge.

Separate egg yolks from egg whites.

Mix 7 egg yolks with ¼ cup of sugar and use a double boiler to cook egg yolks until they start to thicken. Mix constantly (about 10 minutes). Leave to cool (about ½ hour). Add 2½ cups of mascarpone cheese to it.

Mix 7 egg whites with ¼ cups of sugar and a pinch of salt. Use a mixer until you achieve hard peaks. Into that mixture add egg yolk mix.

Quickly dip ladyfingers into espresso mix. Dip each side separately and keep it VERY short (less than a second for both sides).

Layer cake in following order: ladyfingers, cream, chopped chocolate, cocoa powder; repeat.

Cool down in the fridge for 5 hours (minimum); ideally overnight.
