Divide eggs into two different bowls (one with the white, one with the yolks)
Add the sugar to the yolks and mix it strongly.
The white of the eggs should be beaten as much as you can (has to be thick).
Add the mascarpone to the yolk and sugar, and mix again until it gets uniform.
Then mix the whites of the eggs with the yolk sugar and mascarpone, very slowly from bottom to top, until you get a light and smooth creamy mix.
Dip the biscuit lightly in the coffee, not too much, and place it on the bottom of the ceramic dish then cover with one coat of the creamy mixture.
Alternate one layer of mixture with one layer of biscuit. Let it rest in the fridge for at least 5 or 6 hours.
Ready to serve – after you have decorated it with a little bit of cacao powder or liquid chocolate.

Caution: In Italy we say Tiramisu is a natural “Viagra”!
