one of my favourite desserts


beat the egg yolks in a bowl over a double boiler until light and fluffy. add the sugar and sweet wine and continue beating until it thickens. mash the mascarpone in a bowl until smooth add the zabaglione and mix well. in another bowl whip the cream until very light and then fold into the zabaglione mixture. in a small bowl put the expresso and rum in a small bowl and mix together. dip the ladys fingers in the mixture and then place into the tiramisu dish now layer the zabaglione and then do it again twice more. finally dust with a little cocoa powder to finish.
