Colomba tiramisu: an original variant

tiramisu of dove

The colomba tiramisu is an interesting variation of the original recipe, with aromas and flavors that enhance this delicious dessert.

The colomba tiramisu is not only a clever idea to dispose of an leftover colomba, but it is an excellent dessert, and different from the traditional tiramisu. In fact, the aromas of the Easter dove give it a completely different flavor, and he bathes it with orange enriches it with other perfumes . If you have the possibility, we advise you to make it in single portions: it is more elegant and does not create cutting and serving problems.

If there are also children on the table, you can omit the orange juice liqueur. Let’s begin!

Preparation of the dove tiramisu

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 ° C.
  2. Cut the dove into slices about 1.5 / 2 centimeters high. If you prepare the tiramisu in a single container, leave them whole. If, on the other hand, you present single portions, with the edges of the glass in which you will serve it, cut the dove into discs.
  3. Take a baking sheet and cover it with parchment paper. Place the slices or discs of dove on them and bake for 8-10 minutes , turning them halfway through cooking. They only need to be slightly toasted.
  4. Meanwhile, open the three eggs by separating the yolks from the whites.
  5. Put the egg yolks in a container, add the sugar and with the electric whisk mounted for a minute until the mixture is homogeneous and fluffy. Add a third of the mascarpone and mix gently.
  6. Add the rest of the mascarpone twice more , always mixing. In the end you have to get a smooth and homogeneous mixture.
  7. Pour the egg whites into another container, and still with a whisk, whisk them until stiff. Add a third of the whipped to the mascarpone mixture, and mix gently. Add the rest of the whipping in two more times, always mixing.
  8. Squeeze the oranges and strain the juice to which you need to add the orange liqueur .
  9. Pour a layer of cream into the container or single portions you use. Lightly dip the colomba in the orange juice flavored with the liqueur and use it to make a layer of colomba. Continue alternating a layer of cream with one of dove, until the container is full. Refrigerate for at least two hours.
  10. Just before serving, sprinkle the surface of the tiramisu with the unsweetened cocoa powder and garnish with the almonds.
