We don’t really give up. We’re happy with failing. -shrugs-
Anyway, we decided to do a no-bake thing this year, and thus, tiramisu. How difficult can be be right?
Got the recipe from here and realised hey, we have most of the ingredients! just needed the cream, biscuits and mascarpone cheese.
120ml strong coffee. We used instant powder! 3 tablespoon heaps.
60ml brandy/cognac. We used VSOP.
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 egg yolks
225g mascarpone cheese
175ml heavy cream. We just made sure it had at least 35% fat.
Ladyfingers (the biscuit, not the veggie.
It’s quite easy actually, just follow the recipe!
1) Add coffee with 2tbsp of brandy, and 1 tbsp of sugar. set aside.
2) Beat the egg yolks, brandy, sugar and cheese… this was the part we screwed up lol.
Doing it over a water bath. what you see here is batch two. batch one was a total failure because we didn’t know how hot the bath should be, if the yolks should be ‘cooked’ etc etc. it was a failure! the cheese started separating from the yolk oh my goodness. wanted to kill ourselves. but still, we pressed on! Got it right the second time thankfully! The mixture will increase in volume, and turn into this thick and slightly yellow goo.
3) Whip cream until stiff peaks form.
In the mean time, I dipped the biscuits into the coffee and lined our tin.
Put it in the fridge and next day.. yum yum! Everyone liked it and both of us were like.. omg first time ever. We’re looking for more things to do hur, just need willing bellies!
