Tiramisu with a Good Dose of Coffee or Coffee-infused Eggnog?
Holiday season is upon us, and that means it's time to start thinking about all of those delicious holiday recipes! One thing that always adds a special touch to any holiday dessert is a good cup of coffee. Whether you're using it to give your tiramisu that extra kick or adding it to your eggnog to give it a little something extra, coffee is the perfect ingredient to help elevate your holiday desserts.
When it comes to tiramisu, there are countless ways to make this classic Italian dessert. But one thing that always seems to make it a little bit better is a good dose of coffee. Whether you're using a strong espresso or a rich, dark roast, adding a little bit of coffee to your tiramisu is the perfect way to give it that extra something special.
To make a classic tiramisu, start by whipping up some egg whites and sugar until they form stiff peaks. Then, in a separate bowl, beat together your egg yolks and sugar until they are light and fluffy. Next, add in your mascarpone cheese and mix until everything is well combined.
Now it's time to assemble your tiramisu. Dip your ladyfingers into a mixture of coffee and Marsala wine (or any other type of sweet wine that you like), and then layer them into a dish with the mascarpone mixture. Repeat this process until you've used up all of your ingredients, and then refrigerate your tiramisu for at least a few hours to allow it to set.
When you're ready to serve your tiramisu, dust it with some cocoa powder and serve it up with a steaming cup of coffee on the side. It's the perfect way to enjoy this classic holiday dessert!
Another delicious holiday recipe that is perfect for coffee lovers is eggnog infused with coffee. This is a great way to add a little extra flavour to your eggnog, and it's also a great way to use up any leftover coffee that you might have from the morning.
To make coffee-infused eggnog, start by brewing a strong pot of coffee. You can use any type of coffee that you like, but a dark roast will give your eggnog the most flavour. Once your coffee is brewed, let it cool slightly and then mix it into your eggnog. You can add as much or as little coffee as you like, depending on how strong you want the flavour to be.
Once you've mixed your coffee into your eggnog, it's time to serve it up. You can serve your eggnog over ice, or you can heat it up on the stove and serve it warm. Either way, it's the perfect way to enjoy this classic holiday drink.
So this holiday season, don't be afraid to experiment with coffee in your holiday recipes. Whether you're making tiramisu or eggnog, a little bit of coffee can go a long way in adding that extra special touch to your desserts.
