Little glasses of tiramisu, filled with layers of whipped mascarpone cream sandwiched between coffee and Tia Maria infused sponge. This irresistible Italian dessert is so easy to put together and its the perfect 'make and refrigerate' dinner-party sweet treat.
In a large bowl whisk together the egg yolks and sugar. Whisk for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture turns to a pale yellow colour. Add the mascarpone and stir together with a spoon until all combined. Place to one side.
In a separate large bowl whisk the egg whites for a good 5 minutes until soft peaks form.
Carefully add the egg white to the mascarpone mix and fold in gently. And then set to one side.
Pour the coffee and Tia Maria into a shallow bowl and stir.
Place 4 sponge fingers into the coffee mix and allow to soak for 10-15 seconds. Position the soaked sponge in the bottom of your glasses or dessert dishes. If necessary, break the sponge in half for a better fit. Spoon a layer of the mascarpone mix over the sponge. Then repeat the soaking of sponge fingers and layer on top of the mascarpone. Continue to layer, fishing off with a final layer of mascarpone and a sprinkling of crumbled flake.
