The History of The Famous Tiramisu
Tiramisu is the most well-known dessert, it simply is the crème de la crème!
Tiramisu was invented by a confectioner called Roberto Linguanotto while he was working in his restaurant 'Le Beccherie' in Treviso, Italy. People say that tiramisu has aphrodisiac effects and therefore was served in brothels in Trevisto.
The name tiramisu comes from tireme su, which is dialect of Treviso for 'pick me up'. In Italian it's tiramisu.
Before electricity was available, along with refrigerators, this dessert, which does not keep for long, was only eaten and known of in the province of Treviso and the surrounding areas.

Time to Prepare
|Prep time||Ready in||Yields|
Serves up to 10 people
- 3 egg yolks
- 70g/ 2,4 ounces sugar
- 15g/ 0,52 ounces vanilla sugar
- 500g/ 17,63 ounces mascarpone
- 250g/ 8,81 ounces whipped cream
- 250g/ 8,81 ounces ladyfingers
- 200ml/ 7,03 oz espresso coffee
- +- 40g/ 1,41 ounces cacao powder, to sieve over the tiramisu
- Dip the ladyfingers in the espresso coffee and lay them on the bottom of your tiramisu shape. You can use any type of glass baking tin to make the Tiramisu in.
- Now we start to prepare the cream filling. First mix the egg yolks with the sugar & vanilla sugar. Once the mass has a light orange look you can add the mascarpone. After about 3-5 minutes mixing the mascarpone should be soft and the cream starts to look like one smooth mass. Lastly we add the whipped cream into the mascarpone and we mix with a spatula carefully the whipped cream into the mass.
- Now you can put the half of the total cream mass onto the ladyfinger bottom and spread it out evenly.
- Once you have done this you can add the 2nd layer of ladyfingers on top of the cream (dip them in the coffee first).
- We arrived at the last step: Add the rest of the cream mass onto the 2nd layer of ladyfingers and spread it out evenly.
- Leave the tiramisu in the fridge to rest for at least 8 hours (I personally like to let it rest more, so the tiramisu has the most flavor). Little Tip: Before you dig into it, Add cacao powder on top of your piece of tiramisu. It's better to just add the cacao powder on top of the piece(s) you eat at the moment instead of adding the cacao powder on all the tiramisu. Enjoy this delicious tiramisu!

Do You Love Cakes & Do You Want To Bake The Victoria Sandwich Cake?
Sponge cake (you might know it as Swiss Roll) is one of the oldest forms of cakes. It is a very popular product all around the globe, because it's so easy to make. It was invented a long time ago, in the year 1615 to be exact. But only in the 18th century bakers started to use eggs in the batter and it became popular in Western Europe.
The Victoria Sandwich Cake is also known as the Victoria Sponge Cake and Victorian Cake. This delicious Sponge Cake is the typical British treat to eat while you sip your tea.
Queen Victoria started to organize her own tea parties around the year 1855. The simple sponge cake was one of the favourites of the Queen. After her husband, Prince Albert, died in 1861, the Queen spent time in the Osborn House at the Isle of Wight. At this place the Sponge cake was named after Queen Victoria.
