250ml cold heavy whipping cream
227g mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp espresso extract
1 tsp tiramisu essence
120-140g semi-sweet chocolate shavings
Cocoa powder, for dusting
a pack of ladyfingers (homemade and store-bought work equally well)
2 cups of strong coffee
In a large bowl, whip heavy cream and 2 tbsp of powdered sugar until it forms stiff peaks... place it in ur fridge
In another bowl, whisk together mascarpone, powdered sugar, vanilla essence. Whisk in espresso extract and tiramisu essence. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture.
Slice ladyfingers into 3/4 high.. place it around ur pan..
One at a time, very gently dip both sides of each ladyfinger into the coffee mixture, lining bottom of a 8" inch Springform pan. Dip and line as you go. The ladyfingers can break apart, so don’t dip them too long. About a 2-second dip on each side. Trim any ladyfingers as needed so that it fits comfortably in pan. Split mascarpone filling in half. Spread half of the filling on top of ladyfingers. Dust with cocoa powder and chocolate shaving. Repeat dipping and lining for second layer of ladyfingers. Spread remaining mascarpone filling on top. Dust with cocoa. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings. Chill overnight in springform pan to set.
