Description

Tiramisu translates to “cheer me up” or “pick me up” and it does just that. Delicate layers of zabaglione, espresso soaked ladyfingers, shaved chocolate, and a light dusting of cocoa powder makes for a decadent yet light treat that will brighten any day. The trick to making a good tiramisu is to make sure the ladyfingers are properly moistened, but not saturated, so that they hold some shape and retain texture. A bite of this simple, yet satisfying authentic dish will take you back to an Italian cafe on the cobble streets in Rome. Buon appetito! Uses KitchenAid® Hand Mixer.

    Directions

    1. Special Equipment: 8x8x2.5-in/20x20x6.35-cm square baking pan; spatula; whisk; thermometer; sifter
    2. Make a zabaglione: In a large heatproof bowl, add 5 egg yolks, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/3 cup marsala, and 1/4 tsp salt. Fit the KitchenAid® 7-Speed Hand Mixer with the turbo beater attachments. Set the bowl over a pot of simmering water. Place the beaters into the bowl and turn to speed 4, mixing constantly until the mixture is thickened and reads 170ºF/77ºC on a thermometer, about 6-8 minutes. Take care not to overcook the yolks. Turn off the mixer and remove the turbo beaters.
    3. Remove the bowl from the pot and place the mixture in the refrigerator to cool for 15 minutes.
