First of all, let's make a coffee. Set aside. In the meanwhile, whisk yolks and sugar, add mascarpone cheese and work well until the cream gets thick, light yellow and creamy. Add one tablespoon of liqueur. A part, whisk the egg whites. Combine the egg whites to the cream. Dip your lady fingers into coffee and line them on the bottom of a tray. Pour over them half of the cream. Sprinkle a generous quantity of cocoa powder. Repeat again until you finish all your ingredients. Top with more cocoa powder. Leave it in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.

To enhance the wonderful personality of tiramisu, add a shot glass of liqueur to coffee. Of course, not if you are making tiramisu for children!
Tiramisu is a classic Italian dessert coffee-flavoured, enriched with a mascarpone cream and soft ladyfingers. This indulgent and rich dessert comes from Venice, one of the most romantic cities in the world. It's worth a try!
