Tiramisu Gelato (Ice Cream)
Anyone have an idea how I can make a tiramisu flavored gelato or ice cream to go with a birthday cake for an Italian themed dinner. It's a bit over-the-top, but I figure some might want just gelato and some both! TIA.
Use a vanilla ice cream recipe that calls for heavy cream, but substitute mascarpone for the cream, leave out the vanilla, and add some marsala.
Here's a translation of an Italian recipe:
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp sugar
1 shot of rum
20 grams dark chocolate chopped fine
20 grams toasted almonds chopped fine
100 grams mascarpone
Beat the egg and sugar together until creamy. Beat in the rum, chocolate, and almonds. Mix in the mascarpone. Freeze for two hours before serving.
If you're already making dessert and dinner, i wouldn't risk messing up something as great tiramisu gelato unless you're planning on practicing with different recipes. yum...i love me some tiramisu gelato! good luck!
