Tiramisu is a classic Italian dessert. In this episode of Gluten Free Tasty, Frances shows you this simple tiramisu recipe using gluten free ladyfingers.
To begin, place the ricotta cheese, grated lemon zest and hazelnut liqueur, pure vanilla extract and two tablespoons of sugar in a large bowl. Mix the ingredients together slightly.
Then, head over to your mixer and add two egg yolks and one tablespoon of sugar, then mix until it is a light yellow. Stop the mixer and add the lightly blended ricotta mixture to the standing mixer. Let this mix together, and add in the half cup of heavy cream. Let the mixture blend for about two minutes until it is nicely whipped!
Now we get to the fun part - assembling the tiramisu! Into a pan, dump one and one quarter cups of fresh brewed espresso that has been cooled and two tablespoons of hazelnut liqueur. Then, take your gluten free lady fingers and dip each one into the espresso and hazelnut liquor mixture and hold it for about 20 seconds.
Then, start layering the soaked ladyfingers into an 8x10 baking pan. Once you have one full layer of ladyfingers, you are going to take half of the blended ricotta mixture and spoon it over the top of the ladyfingers. then spread it out evenly with a spatula.
Then, go back to the lady fingers and add a second layer of soaked ladyfingers over the ricotta mixture. Finally, take the second half of the ricotta mixture and spread it over the second layer of ladyfingers. Sprinkle the top with a nice cocoa mixture. Cover the pan and place into the refrigerator for six hours.
And there you have it! Once cooled your tiramisu is ready to taste! Try this light delicious dessert for your next dinner party.
