I use only the best ingredients whether I am making traditional Tiramisu or Lemoncello Tiramisu.
Just a few basic ingredients and you are off to a good start.
6 eggs
5 tablespoon raw sugar
Lady fingers
Mascarpone cheese
Good quality espresso (I use my Nespresso machine)
Kaluha (coffee liquor) (Quanto Basta)
Brandy/cognac (Quanto Basta) which Remember means just enough, by your standards.
Valrhona cocoa
Shaved Bernard Callebaut chocolate.

Separate the eggs and beat the yolks with the sugar until smooth and creamy. Then fold in the Mascarpone cheese until smooth…..
In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until light a fluffy.
Then fold the egg white mixture into the egg yolk and mascarpone cheese mixture folding gently until fully blended.
Mix the espresso, and 2 liquors together
Now comes the fun…..
Pick your favorite serving dish, bowl or dessert bowl and start to layer.
I always put a little of the creamy mixture lightly on the bottom and then I dip each lady in the coffee liquor mixture and lay in a patterned row in your dish. Cover the whole bottom and when it is covered spoon enough creamy cheese mixture to cover your lady fingers.
Once covered I sprinkle some shaved chocolate and just a little cocoa until light covering the surface of your first layer.

Repeat the steps for the second layer and finish with a nice dusting of cocoa and sprinkle shaved chocolate over the finished surface.
Then cover and refrigerate (overnight is best)
Scoop into a nice serving dish and top with a few nice raspberries and a mint leaf for garnish.
Made with love this is a crowd pleaser.
Enjoy…..
