What Is Authentic Giada Tiramisu?

Before we can dive into the Authentic Tiramisu Recipe Giada, we should at least know the proper basics of what a Authentic Tiramisu is. From what I know, authentic tiramisu’s have a lot of stories surrounding how it came to be. However, the story that is accepted comes from the 1800s.

Most people credit tiramisu’s creation to the town of Treviso. In this town, there is a legend of an amazing chef that first made this delicious dessert by accident. When the dessert was complete though, it became such a favorite that it was then written into books and served across Italy in restaurants and bakeries.

What To Eat With This Authentic Tiramisu Recipe Giada

 How do I make my tiramisu firmer?

The hardest part about making this authentic tiramisu recipe giada is finding different ways to enjoy this dessert. Although you can eat it without anything, I like to add extra flavors and textures. Most people like to enjoy this drink with a fruity or dry wine. This cancels out the sweetness, which can be too much for some people.

Others enjoy tiramisu with milk as the milk tastes refreshing. Adding that much dairy though is not recommended for lactose intolerant tiramisu eaters. If you are anything like me and love to dip foods, you can also add extra lady fingers to scoop the tiramisu and enjoy!

What You Need To Make This Authentic Tiramisu Recipe Giada

Ingredients

  • 6 egg yolks. If you do not wish to only separate the egg whites and yolks by hand, you can also purchase an egg yolk cream often sold in the dairy section. The consistency is a bit thin, but it does the trick!
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. I prefer brown sugar because it mixes well with the rest of the ingredients. This Authentic Tiramisu Recipe Giada calls for brown sugar also because it gives a tinge of color to the dessert. However, white sugar will give it the same flavor.
  • 2 Cups of Espresso- Cool
  • 2 Packs of 12 Lady fingers
  • 2 Cups of mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 Cup of Coffee Liquor

Equipment

  • Whisk
  • Blender
  • Baking Pan (deep)
  • 2 Small Bowls

Step by Step Instructions To Make This Authentic Tiramisu Recipe Giada

Step 1: Prepare the Filling

It is super easy to make this delicious authentic tiramisu recipe giada. The first step is to prepare the filling. Use the ingredients listed above, minus the lady fingers and the rum/espresso. Place the ingredients in a blender or whisk with your hand until completely smooth. Set aside in the fridge.

Step 2: Soak the Ladyfingers

Possibly the easiest part about this authentic tiramisu recipe Giada is the ladyfingers! For the second step, mix rum and the espresso coffee together. Once it is mixed in, you can start dipping the ladyfingers into the mixture to soak in flavor. Do this step very quickly so that they do not soak and get soggy!

Step 3: Prepare the Dish and Place the Ingredients Together

In layers, start preparing the dish in the pan. Make sure to add a layer of coffee/espresso lady fingers first, and then spread the filling. Continue layering until you have run out of items. This tiramisu can be as tall or as short as you like.

Step 5: Cool and Enjoy

Once it is complete, garnish as you like. You can add espresso, chocolates, or cinnamon on top to give it an extra pop of color. Place plastic wrap on top of the pan and refrigerate until it is time to serve the delicious dish.

Tips And Tricks For This Authentic Tiramisu Recipe Giada

Although this authentic tiramisu recipe giada is relatively easy to follow, I do have some pointers that can help speed up the process! For example, not everyone who wants to enjoy a delicious tiramisu can do so because they do not want to eat egg products or have an allergy.

If this is your case, you are in luck! You can easily use an egg yolk substitute or completely dismiss it from this list. It is good to have options that fit your dietary needs.

Also, another tip I would like to share is how to make your tiramisu firmer. There have been a few times where my tiramisu almost looks flat and slippery. When this occurs, I add more mascarpone cheese to the filling. This is because this sweet creamy cheese is thick and helps thicken the rest of the dessert.

If you add too much espresso, this can cause the dessert to get soggy. I recommend only using the coffee/espresso liquor on the lady fingers. If you have a spray bottle that is made for cooking, you can lightly spray the lady fingers with this mixture so that it does not get soggy.
