Have You Ever Tried Tiramisu with Pandoro?
Tiramisu is a dessert of Italian origin, much loved and widespread throughout the world. To prepare this delight, you need a few ingredients and a little time. As you’re aware, the original recipe offers various possibilities for adaptation, and today, we’ll create a Christmas version by using Pandoro.
Before heading to the kitchen and putting on our aprons, it’s interesting to discover the origins of the name of the dessert we’re about to prepare. Did you know the meaning of “tiramisu”? The word originates from the Italian verb “tira su,” meaning “to lift.” The dessert earned this name due to its powerful coffee flavor and the presence of Savoyard biscuits, believed to “lift” spirits and provide an energy boost.
The recipe for pandoro tiramisu
Let’s go and cheer ourselves up and prepare this delightful and easy cake. For the pandoro tiramisu, gather the following ingredients: 1 pandoro, 500 ml of fresh whipping cream, 100 grams of icing sugar, 250 grams of mascarpone, 4 cups of liquid coffee, and bitter cocoa to taste.
The first thing you need to do is prepare the coffee and leave it aside. Then, in a bowl, combine the fresh whipping cream with the icing sugar, add the mascarpone, and continue whipping until you achieve a soft and consistent texture.
Take the Pandoro and cut it into strips. In a baking dish, start assembling the first layer of Pandoro and brush it with coffee. Then, evenly distribute the whipped cream and mascarpone mixture. Repeat this process, layering Pandoro and cream until the baking dish is filled. On the top layer, after adding the mascarpone and cream, sprinkle some bitter cocoa using a sieve for the finishing touch. Once ready, cover the baking dish with tissue paper and place the tiramisu in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving.
