Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup warm espresso coffee
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup super fine sugar (castor sugar)
  • 8 ounce package mascarpone cheese
  • 1/3 cup sweet masala/dark rum
  • 24 ladyfingers (savioardi cookies)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Mix the coffee and brown sugar together in a small bowl and then place in the fridge to cool.
  • Separating the eggs.
  • Set the yolks to one side and place the egg whites into a mixing bowl.
  • Beat the egg whites until they are stiff.
  • In a second mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks and super fine sugar together until the mixture is a pale yellow colour and has started to thicken. (about 4 minutes)
  • Whisk in the mascarpone cheese two tablespoon at a time, until well mixed and fluffy.
  • Pour in the marsala and continue whisking until everything is smooth.
  • Use a metal spoon to carefully fold in the egg whites. Turn gently, so you don't deflate the whites, until just combined. You should be left with a very light pillowy cream.
  • Remove the cooled coffee from the fridge and dip a cookie into it until it is just fully saturated, the aim is for a soft cookie, but not to have it fall apart.
  • Break the cookie in half and lay it in the bottom of your glass, Depending on the shape of your glasses you might need an extra half cookie on your bottom layer. The aim is for a single even layer of soaked cookies. (See notes)
  • Repeat with the remaining glasses.
  • Spoon a heaped tablespoon of cream over the cookies, and sprinkle with a little cocoa powder.
  • Repeat your layers until your glasses are full.
  • Set the tiramisu in the fridge to set, an hour minimum and up to 24hrs.
  • To serve dust with more cocoa powder.

Notes

I use small wine glasses for my individual tiramisu. They are probably about 250ml/1 cup sized. 
Depending on the shape of your glass you might need more or less cookies on each layer to cover the bottom. 
And the height of your glass will dictate how many layers you can achieve.
