Homemade Tiramisu

Homemade Tiramisu Recipe
I used to think that tiramisu is one of those thing that's too complicated to make until my friend told me that it's not. All I need are the right ingredients and I am ready to go. I tried three different recipes before settling with this one, which is a combination of those three. :)

The ingredients:

 How to make tiramisu

Printable Recipe
Serving: 1 medium 1 ½  Qt or 8 x 11  lasagna dish
4 egg yolks

1/4 cup (about 50 g) sugar
1/4 cup (about 60ml ) Marsala Wine {found at Trader Joe's}
1 Tb chocolate powder

300 ml heavy whipping cream { found at Trader Joe's}

Coffee Mixture: in bowl or measuring glass, mix well: 1 cup coffee 1/4 cup amaretto wine {I use Disaronno found at Bev Mo or you can use Rum instead} + 1 Tb white sugar + 1 ½  Tbs Kahlua

Zabaglione or let's just call it Mixture A:
Boil water in a small pan. 
Choose a glass mixing bowl that's big enough to 'sit' on (not sink inside) the pan. Put the bowl inside the pan, then add in the sugar and egg yolks, whisk and cook over simmering water for about 3 minutes.
Add the Marsala wine, continue to cook and whisk the mixture for about 5 minutes 'till the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Move the bowl from double broiler into a big bowl or sink filled with cold water. Let it chilled

Mixture B:
Whip the heavy whipping cream with electric mixer 'till nice and thick
Add the mascarpone cheese and mixture A then whisk again with mixer only for a few seconds. 

The assembly:
1. Dip in ½ of the lady fingers one by one - 2 seconds each side- into the coffee mixture then assemble it on the container.
2. Spread half of the cream mixture on the top of the lady fingers
3. Repeat step 1 and 2
4. Cover and let it chill overnight in the refrigerator
5. Sprinkle with chocolate powder or grated chocolate
