A very yummy recipe for Kahlua Tiramisu


7 Egg Yolks
1 cup Sugar
3 cups Mascarpone Cheese
4 1/2 tablespoons Water
1 1/2 tablespoons Powdered Gelatin
3 Egg Whites
1/4 cup Sugar
1 cup Heavy Cream, whipped
2 1/2 cups cooled Espresso
1/2 cup Kahlua
20 to 24 Ladyfingers
1/2 cup cocoa powder to garnish.


In a mixer with the whip attachment, whip egg yolks and 1 cup sugar until thick and pale in color (ribbon stage).

Add mascarpone and whip until well incorporated.

Pour water into a small bowl then pour powdered gelatin over it. Do not stir.

Allow gelatin to absorb all of the water,about 15 minutes.

Place the bowl on top of a small saucepan containing simmering water.

Immediately turn off the heat and allow the gelatin to dissolve completely.

In a separate bowl, whip egg whites to a soft peak, gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, then slowly pour in dissolved gelatin. Whip to a stiff, glossy peak.

Fold whites into mascarpone and yolk mixture then fold in whipped cream.

In a separate bowl, combine espresso and kahlua.

Soak 1 ladyfinger at a time in the espresso mixture.

In an 8 by 10-inch pan, arrange soaked ladyfingers close together in neat rows until the bottom of the pan is completely covered. Pour 1/2 of the mousse over the ladyfingers and smooth with a rubber spatula.

Create another layer then sprinkle the chocolate shavings over mousse. and chill until set.
