Classic Tiramisu (with raw eggs) recipe 

A classic Tiramisu recipe with eggs, Mascarpone cheese, Marsala wine and heavy cream. The eggs in this recipe are not cooked; instead they are beaten raw, together with the cream and Mascarpone. If you do not feel right with this you can cook the egg yolks and sugar in a double boiler, whisking continously, until pale yellow in color. Cool and use as mentioned in the recipe.

Refrigeration time is essential for Tiramisu, as it allows for all the flavors to come together. A minimum of 3 hours is needed, but for best results, refrigerate for 6 hours or even more.The best is to make the Tiramisu a day in advance.

A classic Italian dessert, Tiramisu is a multi-layered cake consisting of Italian biscuits dipped in Espresso coffee, toppped with a layer or more of  cream usually made of eggs, alcohol, cream and Mascarpone cheese. This recipe is one of the best Tiramisu recipes we have tried. It uses a zabaglione cream flavored with Cointreau and rum, a Mascarpone based cream and Amaretti biscuits that have been dipped in an Espresso, Kahlua and brandy mixture. For best results, refrigerate the Tiramisu for at least 3 hours (refrigerate overnight for even better taste).
