I like the idea of using mousse instead of egg whites and cacaco. Maybe i will try this recipe for the filling:

Your recipe also looks like it has raw egg whites in so I say pick a recipe you like with mousse like filling and try it with the biscuit coffee base. Can't really go wrong with that combo. Yum!

Directions

  1. Melt chocolate on steam.
  2. Mix together margarine and powdered sugar until foamy add 8 yolks and melted chocolate.
  3. In bigger bowl, mix white of egg (it must be mixed well).
  4. Combine chocolate mix and white of egg mix until it’s mixed well.
  5. Take baking pan (covered with kitchen paper) and put 1st layer: soak Petit Beurre in coffee and put one by another until cover bottom. 2nd layer is chocolate mix then again soaked Petit Beurre, chocolate mix and finally Petit Beurre.

Yeah, the raw eggs would bother me also.

Sure sounds like a chocolate tiramisu of some sort.

Incidentally, most classic tiramisu recipes call for raw eggs. You've probably eaten them many times and not even known it.

I very rarely eat a dessert. If I have a doughnut, it is only a half of one and it is a plain cake type. Teramisu I have never even tried.

So after collecting several ideas, here is the recipe I tried:

Ingredients:
  • Around 40 plain biscuits
  • 1 cup instant coffee
  • Mousse chocolate made of:
    • 2 cups cooking cream
    • 2 heaping tbsp unsweetened cacao
    • 1 cup sugar

The amount of biscuits and mousse used depends on the portions you want to make. As a test I prepared 5 cups.
  1. To make the mousse: whip together the cooking cream, the sugar and the cacao. add sugar at the end (when I first made it i noticed that it was very bitter so I added sugar after I was done mixing)
  2. Dip the biscuit in the instant coffee for no more than 2-3 seconds then place it in a cup. add one tablespoon mousse.
  3. Repeat these steps until you have 3 layers of biscuits
  4. Sprinkle cacao on top for decoration (unless anyone has a better idea :P)
  5. Put it in the fridge (waiting for it now )

other, recipe

Can you figure out the rest of this recipe? Hello, I remember a really tasty dessert that our housekeeper used to make when we were kids and I've been trying to remember the recipe for a while now... can you please help? Here is what i know so far: [LIST] Dip plain biscuits in instant coffee (nescafe) to soften them and place them in the bottom of a pyrex. [/LIST] [LIST] In a seperate bowl, add egg whites and beat until fluffy. Then add cocoa (not sure if this is before or after beating the egg whites). Not sure if some other ingredients should also be added in this step (like sugar or vanilla...) [/LIST] [LIST] Place one layer of biscuits then one layer of the chocolate mix Put in the fridge for ?? Hours [/LIST] This is as much as i remember from it. Are there any more steps or ingredients to it? Also is it a known recipe, if yes then what is it called Thanks in advance:chef: 3 stars 1 reviews
