Ok, this is Mamma Maria's famous Tiramisu. I worked with a lovely Italian girl who would bring it to work whenever cake was necessary. Her Nona would make up a double batch for us. I have made it for the last 15 years and always get comments on how amazing it is. Enjoy!
1 packet Saviardi
250g Mascapone cheese
3 large eggs
3 heaped Tbs castor sugar
1/2c Masala (ouvo)
1/2c espresso coffee cold
Separate eggs and whisk whites until firm
In a separate bowl whisk egg yolks, cheese and sugar until light and creamy.
Whisk in a good Italian slug of Masala
Gently fold 1/2 egg whites to soften mixture, fold in the rest.
Mix Masala and coffee together and dunk (don't drench) saviardi biscuits.
Spoon egg/cheese mix over layers of biscuits and repeat, finishing with the egg/cheese mix
Dust with cocoa.
Best eaten the next day
