I love tiramisu and have always loved visiting Italy.
This is an alternative recipe and has always been my favourite, it has evolved from the many times we have served it, in fact my wife has got it down to a fine art.
1Place the eggs in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, add the sugar and Kirsch and stir over the heat for about 10mins until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has thickened. Remove from the heat and continue to stir until cool.
2Beat the cheese & cream together until thick and then fold in the cold egg mixture.
3Arrange slices of Madera cake in the bottom of a shallow serving dish and drizzle with some of the cold black coffee. Dredge the cake layer with cocoa powder and cover with a layer of the cheese mixture.
4Repeat the layers finishing with the cheese mixture.
5Tap the dish lightly then coat with a layer of cocoa and grated chocolate.
This classic should be in every Southern woman's repertoire. A moist, delicious Chocolate-Mayonnaise Cake pleases crowds of all ages, and is the perfect dessert to bring to a neighbor, to a potluck, or to a summer party.
