Gluten-Free Tiramisu Recipe
Tiramisu is an amazing traditional Italian dessert oozing with rich cream, ladyfingers, cocoa and coffee liqueur. This gluten-free tiramisu dessert is made from scratch. Yes, I have included a recipe for gluten-free ladyfingers, please see below. But, if you want to save time, you can buy ready made gluten-free ladyfingers here.
♥ How is gluten-free tiramisu made?
Tiramisu is all about the rich cream layered with ladyfingers. The ladyfingers are brushed with a mixture of espresso coffee and liqueur. Then, they are layered with rich cream and powdered with cocoa. So, gluten-free tiramisu is layers of gluten-free ladyfingers flavoured with coffee liqueur and cream. To make the rich cream you use egg yolks and briefly cook them in a double boiler with sugar. Then, the eggs whipped until the sugar has melted. Once the egg mixture has cooled you mix it with mascarpone cheese and whipped cream. Pretty straight forward, but it does take a little hands-on time. Once the cake is layered in a beautiful serving dish, place it in the fridge overnight to chill. Tiramisu is not a cake that you bake and it is always served chilled. Enjoy!
For those who are more adventurous in the kitchen, I have included a recipe for gluten-free ladyfingers.
