The traditional tiramisł recipe requires savoiardi lady fingers, available in Italian delicacy stores.
Dip the fingers quickly in the cooled coffee to avoid them from getting to soggy. A longer dip will also give the tiramisł a stronger coffee flavour.
You can also add liquors like rum or marsala to your cofee for a bit of flavour.
The traditional tiramisł recipe does not include chocolate topping or strawberry decoration but separates the layers of finger ladies and mascarpone with cocoa powder only. If you wan't to prepare this traditional version just leave out the extra topping.
Be very careful when separating the eggs making sure the egg yolks do not leak in the egg whites of viceversa. If this happens your cream will not be as fluffy as it should which means the tiramisł will loose volume and appeal.
Grate the chocolate finely because chunks will be to heavy for the cream layer and lower the height of the tiramisł.
The type of chocolate can be of your own liking, just as the fruit decoration on top of the tiramisł.
Place the strawberries at the moment of serving the tiramisł of the moisture of the mascarpone cheese will soften them.
