And that’s how easy Tiramisu is prepared in a glass:
Chop the spoon biscuits and divide into the four glasses. Mix espresso, amaretto or liqueur with 1 tbsp sugar and set aside. Separate the yolks and mix with half of the sugar (25 g) and the grated orange peel until the sugar melts.
Add the mascarpone and stir until the mixture becomes more homogeneous and lighter. In another bowl beat the egg whites with the remaining sugar until stiff and add a pinch of salt. Continue to stir and then slowly add the egg whites to the mascarpone mass using a rubber spatula. Stir again.
Pour the espresso-amaretto mixture over the minced biscuits into each glass and press down. Place the mascarpone cream on top and let it cool in the fridge for about 1 hour.
You can also use other types of biscuits, but these should be quite soft
If desired, you can also add caramel syrup
Dust well with cocoa powder before serving and garnish as desired with the fresh lemon balm leaves, coffee beans or fruit.
Combine fresh mint with a few whole coffee beans
Dark chocolate chips are also great for decorating
Basil leaves are just as fitting and smell fresh
- If you want to prepare tiramisu in layers in the glass, at first only put half of the biscuits in the jars and only half of the espresso mixture and the mascarpone cream. And then as a second layer, the remaining quantities of the mixtures and the biscuits come on it.
- Just before serving, place an extra layer of mascarpone in the top of the glass and then serve with cocoa powder.
- Mix the cocoa powder with a pinch of cinnamon to make the whole thing a little more festive.
