Classic Tiramisu recipe in baking dish – Italian Cuisine


  • 1 Kg mascarpone
  • 400 g sugar
  • 12 pcs egg yolks
  • 20 cups of espresso coffee
  • 16 pcs large soft ladyfingers
  • bitter cocoa

For the classic pan-fried tiramisu recipe, whisk the egg yolks and sugar for at least 10 minutes with an electric whisk or planetary mixer until you get a very light and frothy mixture. Add the mascarpone and continue to whisk for no more than 5 minutes: at the beginning very slowly then slightly increasing the speed.
To make tiramisu: Spread a layer of mascarpone cream in a baking dish (35 × 28 cm). Wet the ladyfingers in unsweetened coffee. Squeeze them by pressing them carefully so as to remove the excess liquid. In order not to break them, use a scoop when lifting them from the coffee. Place 8 of them on the cream, side by side, so as to form the first layer. Cover them with cream, continue with 8 more ladyfingers dipped in coffee, finish with a generous layer of cream and sprinkle with bitter cocoa. Seal the pan with the plastic film and place it to cool in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

Sweet Honey Cornbread

Sweet Honey Cornbread

by Pam on December 11, 2012

This is seriously the very best cornbread I have EVER had. I found a recipe on The Gourmand Mom[1] for cornbread that is sweet, moist, and so delicious. I loved how quick and easy it was to make and how amazing it smelled while baking. My whole family gobbled up every last drop of this cornbread and my son told me that it was REALLY GOOD. I served this cornbread with the Black Bean Soup with Bacon[2] and the tossed salad with the Creamy Cilantro Dressing[3] for a comforting and tasty meal that my whole family enjoyed.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a small 8×8 baking dish with canola cooking spray.

In a bowl, mix the flour, corn meal, baking powder, sugar, and salt together until well combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, honey, melted butter, and beaten eggs. Pour the flour mixture into the egg mixture and mix until they are just combined. Do not over mix. Fold in the corn kernels. Pour into the prepared baking dish.

Place into the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, until a tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Allow the bread to cool for about 10 minutes before cutting and serving. Enjoy.
