Chris Marlin and I searched for ages for the perfect Tira-Mi-Su recipe. We love this one, and we now know what to do with the egg whites.
5 egg yolks
4 egg whites
500g marscapone cheese,
or 250g ricotta blended well with 1 cup double cream
*500g sponge fingers
5 heaped tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup Marsala
1.5 cups strong black coffee
Beat egg yolks with sugar until fluffy. Cream the cheese then add the egg yolks. Mix well. Beat the egg whites until stiff and then fold into the cheese mixture. Chill for 10 minutes or more.
Dip sponge fingers into marsala and coffee mixture, place biscuits in a square dish and spoon some mixture over. Place another layer of biscuits on top, them more mixture. Continue in layers.
Sprinkle cocoa on top. Refrigerate until ready to serve, at least 2 hours and preferably overnight.
