Strawberry tiramisu is a tasty variation of the classic coffee tiramisu and it is an easy to prepare dessert that does not need to be baked based on ripe strawberries, whipping cream and ladyfingers biscuits. It has a sweet and captivating flavor and it can also be prepared for a birthday.
Today I present you the Spring version of this dessert, which includes the use of strawberries in the tiramisu with cream made with whipped eggs and strawberry purée.
How to make strawberry tiramisu
Clean the strawberries, gently dry them to remove the excess water and cut them into small pieces.
Put them in a bowl and add 5 tablespoons of sugar and the lemon juice.
Let them develop flavor for about six hours, turning them from time to time.
Divide the strawberries from the juice by filtering them with a small colander.
Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites.
Beat the egg whites until stiff and the egg yolks with six tablespoons of sugar and the lactose-free cream. Blend the macerated strawberries.
In a bowl combine all these four compounds and amalgamate them gently with a whisk or a spatula, moving it from top to bottom to prevent the mixture from collapsing and let it incorporate air that will keep it well firm.
In this way, you will get the cream that will stuff your strawberry tiramisu.
Serve it in single cups or in a single baking tray, from which you will then obtain the portions.
To prepare the strawberry tiramisu in a glass, spread a bit of the mixture into short tumbler glasses (alternatively, you can also use small cups).
Soak the ladyfingers biscuits in the strawberry juice by dipping them on both sides. Divide them in half, if the glass or the cup can not contain them whole.
Put them gently in the small cup and cover with other cream, put another layer of wet ladyfingers biscuits and then another layer of cream and your small cup will be ready. If you want, you can decorate it with small pieces of strawberry.
Put the strawberry tiramisu in the freezer for at least three hours and, when you want to serve it, remember to keep it out of the fridge for an hour or so in order to make it soften.
A strawberry tiramisu should be decorated with whole or cut strawberries placed on the surface of the dessert and a bit of whipped cream to create a contrast with the colors.
How to store and freeze Strawberry Tiramisu
Strawberry tiramisu can be frozen within one day of the preparation date, to prevent an excessive accumulation of bacteria inside the freezer. Cover it well with two rounds of transparent film, or place it in a hermetically sealed container and write the freezing date on it. You can preserve it up to a month.
To defrost it, place it at least four hours in a refrigerator and consume it within twelve hours of defrosting.
If the strawberries juice is not enough, you can add a bit of apple juice, strawberry juice or other similar delicate flavors.
In case you have opted for a whole dessert, I suggest you leave it out of the refrigerator just long enough to soften it and facilitate the portioning, then let rest out of the refrigerator only the portions that you will serve at the table.
A tasty alternative in the preparation of strawberry tiramisu is to blend strawberries with sugar in addition to a good part for decoration.
If you do not like them, in place of the ladyfingers biscuits you can use Italian Pavesini biscuits. The result will not be the same, but it will be equally tasty.
