A few days ago, just before her birthday, she made me extremely happy. When everybody wants to celebrate their parties with a fancy cake, Samantha asked me to turn her favorite dessert into a cake for her birthday. She loves my tiramisú. She would not eat it anywhere else. And I, proudly made her birthday cake a tiramisú cake. Needless to say that it was all gone by the end of the meal.
From my little corner, I would like to wish, my Samantha, a very, happy, unforgettable birthday. After all, you only turn 17 once.
- 1 1/2 packages of mascarpone cheese (750 grams, or 3 1/4 cups)
- 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup of powder sugar
- 1 package of lady fingers
- 1/2 cup of liquor (I like Fangelico)
- 3/4 cup of espresso coffee
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened powder chocolate
In a bowl, combine the liquor with the coffee. This is used to dip the lady fingers in.
Take a square pyrex, and start by spreading some of the mascarpone mixture. Then dip the ladyfingers in the coffee-liquor on both sides, and arrange them, one after the other tightly. Cover this with some of the mascarpone mixture again, and once more dip the lady fingers in the coffee and set them on top. Cover again completely with the mascarpone. And finally, pour the chocolate in a colander and sprinkle over the top to cover completely.
Refrigerate for about 2 hours before serving it. Qué aproveche!
