It is that time of the year when I need something to pick me up, cheer me up or just lift me up.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen I am talking about the one and only – TIRAMISU!

I or we need to make the tiramisu. Why?

Because it is Italian.(do I need to say more?) Of course, NOT.

But, still I will continue…

The tiramisu is a popular coffee-flavored dessert made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee,

layered with a whipped mixture of mascarpone cheese, whip cream and sugar.

If you are ready as I am…we can start our baking show.

In another bowl (bowl #2) sift 2 TBSP flour, 2 TBSP cocoa and 2 tsp baking powder.

Then add 2 cups ground hazelnuts and mix all dry ingredients together.

Using spatula fold dry ingredients into the eggs, in 3 additions. (slowly)

IMPORTANT: Be very gently when mixing with a spatula.

I will repeat, be very gently because you don’t want to upset the dough.

You want the dough to have the fluffiness. Even if you are a jerk you will have to control your anger and be gentle.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake at 350 F for about 30 minutes.

Use a toothpick to check if the cake is done.

Just stick a toothpick into the center of cake. If it comes out clean, your cake is done!

Once baked, leave in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

Once the cake is cool, slice it into two layers.

Making Filling

Mix 1 cup Mascarpone and 2 cups Nutella.

In another bowl mix 1 cup of whip cream.

Now add whipped cream to Nutella Mascarpone mixture.
