If you want to pamper yourself on a weekend, after a tiring week of work, this Tiramisu with caramelized nuts is ideal.
We liked it very much and since I saw Laura's recipe I knew what I was going to do with the mascarpones I had in the fridge. :))
- For caramel:
- 200 g walnut kernels
- 150 g sugar
- For the cake:
- 1 pack of biscuits (200 g)
- 150 g Greek yogurt
- 250 g mascarpone
- 200 ml whipped cream
- 200 g white chocolate
- For syrup:
- 1 cup hard coffee, unsweetened
Preparation Tiramisu with caramelized nuts:
Caramelize the sugar in a small bowl. When it has become liquid and amber-colored, add the walnuts and mix lightly, until all the walnuts are covered with caramel. Pour over a piece of baking paper and leave to cool. After they have cooled and the caramel has hardened very well, they are put in a thicker bag and crushed with a hammer.
Melt the chocolate over low heat together with the whipped cream. Set aside and let cool, then put the dish in the refrigerator until the cream hardens. It can also be put in the freezer to shorten the waiting time.
Mix the chocolate cream until it becomes fluffy. Separately, mix mascarpone with yogurt, then gently mix the 2 compositions, mixing with a spatula. At the end, add ~ half the amount of caramelized nuts, the rest is kept for garnish.
Soak the biscuits in coffee. It is syruped very little and only on one side, so that it can absorb the moisture of the cream.
A layer of biscuits is formed in a cake pan lined with aluminum foil or food foil. Pour half of the cream, cover with another layer of slightly syrupy biscuits, the rest of the cream and another layer of biscuits. Wrap well in foil and refrigerate for a few hours, until it hardens.
In addition, we will need ~ 100 ml whipped cream for decoration.
We turn the cake over on a plate,
cover with a thin layer of whipped cream and line with the rest of the caramelized walnuts.
