Tiramisu chocolate and orange

Tiramisu chocolate and orange: easy and delicious

Tiramisu chocolate and orange. In fact, technically, It is not really a tiramisu but perhaps rather a trifle, a cup in which alternate a soft base, in this case wet ladyfingers with coffee and a cream, here made from egg yolks, sugar, cocoa, orange zest and cream. I have not used, instead, whites (which of course I suggest you keep for preparing a wonderful angel food cake or meringue pavlova for a fresh fruit). In fact, though, the taste and appearance reminiscent of tiramisu and so call, for simplicity.

Indeed, I suggest you take a look at my SPECIAL RECIPES TIRAMISU’ where you'll find creative variations, original or light like thatRICOTTA without eggs, such as citrusTIRAMISU’ LEMON, but also made with cream and berries and even TE MATCHA. If you want to prepare something more traditional, look at the VIDEO OF THE PERFECT RECIPE TIRAMISU’ CLASSIC on my YouTube channel,

The extra gear is the orange and chocolate pairing, that give this dessert that unmistakable taste and the slight sour note, in my opinion, missing tiramisu, whose equilibrium is always at risk for excess sugar and fat. The tiramisu with chocolate and orange is easy to prepare, you can do it in advance and, Indeed, I recommend it, because the next day is much good. It will appeal to all lovers of desserts. If you do not have the desire, or time, to prepare consisting of oranges (it takes 15-20 minutes of cooking), you can use a good jam. If you prefer, you can pasteurize eggs, mounting them with the sugar in a bain marie. And now I wish you good day!
