First it was Sabina's Strawberry Tiramisu and now it's her mother's traditional tiramisu...with a few differences!
Giovanna's Fabulous Tiramisu
About 30 Pavese biscuits
1.5 cups strong coffee
6 eggs separated (use the yolks only)
125g caster sugar
400 mls cream
1 dessertspoon Mistra (a strong spirit flavoured with aniseed)
Beat the egg yolks together with the sugar until thick and creamy. Add the mascarpone and mix well. Whip the cream and fold into the mascarpone/egg yolk mix. Add the Mistra.
Dip the biscuits in the coffee and line a large dish. The biscuits should be packed closely together. Pour the mascarpone mix over the biscuits. Sift the cocoa over the top of the mascarpone to cover well.
This is THE best tiramisu ever!
