Tiramisu(without eggs)

Sunday, December 09, 2007

I want to show you my new creation,Tiramisu.Last week,my kids requested me to make a Tiramisu for their Aunt's birthday.I didn't use any eggs (cooked or raw)in my recipe and still can provides the simplest blend of ingredients to form a fast and tasty basic tiramisu.In Italy, Tiramisu recipe are using eggs, sugar, mascarpone, a dash of marsala/Kahlua,espresso-soaked ladyfingers, a whisper of bitter cocoa across the top.I am against eating raw or undercooked egg yolks,whites or products that contain eggs for my kids.So here I created this Tiramisu without using an egg in the recipe.
I was a bit lazy to make ladyfingers for the cake.Just a simple decoration.I only use a basic sponge cake for the base.And dusted with some cocoa powder and decorate it with Chocolate Macaroon where I bought it from a local supermarket.I like to Mascarpone because it has the soft texture unlike cream cheese which is rich in taste.Once you taste it, you can only imagine the difference.I previously thought that raw egg whites/yolks were OK to eat. ... You know-where I use to eat raw eggs at the Kopitiam.Don't eat raw egg whites every day-It's not good for Your health.Researchers say that, the Salmonella enteritidus bacteria are usually in the yolk .But they cannot rule out the bacteria being in egg whites.If you want to use raw eggs for your tiramisu,you have to ensure that your eggs are very fresh,refrigerated eggs, preferably organic and free-range.
