Tiramisù for 4 people


3 eggs
300 gr mascarpone cheese
1.5 spoons of sugar (add more if you want it sweeter)
Lady fingers


Separate the yolks and the white part of the eggs.

Add sugar to the yolk and mix until it comes white, then add mascarpone cheese at two different stages and mix.

Take the white part of the egg and mix it until it becomes like snow.

Mix it all together. Remember to mix the white part in the cream from bottom to top.

The cream is now ready, all you have to do is put the cream base in a pot, lady fingers with coffee, another layer of cream, lady fingers and finally cream. Your tiramisù is now ready!

If you want, you can add another layer of chocolate, fruit or whatever you love!
