Pumpkin, Nutella and Frangelico make this an extraordinary Tiramisu, this Nutella Pumpkin Tiramisu is the perfect dish for your fall party
Tiramisu is my jam, at a local restaurant, Roman Cucina, I almost always order it. It is one of my favorite desserts of all time.
Like most things, there is good tiramisu and bad tiramisu. I prefer to really taste the Mascarpone Cheese while lots of places seem to serve a more whipped cream filling. It’s all about the Mascarpone in my world.
I’ve come across Nutella Tiramisu numerous times. I am on a Nutella kick right now. And with it being Fall and all, you know pumpkin everything. This seemed like an obvious choice. And forget the Rum lets use Frangelico! Hazelnut liqueur! Sign me the hell up!
This is one of those perfect desserts for a party. Really anytime.
It takes all of 20 minutes to whip up. It’s the waiting part that’s hard. But it’s always so amazing waking up the next day and everything is already done. Some of my favorite things are made the day before like this and this.
I used the soft lady fingers, you could use hard just dip them a little longer than the soft.
In the bowl of an electric mixer combine the egg yolks and granulated sugar. Mix for 3-5 minutes, until the mixture is a very pale yellow. Mix in Frangelico, then pumpkin pie spice and salt. Then mix in mascarpone and pumpkin puree combine until no white streaks remain. Scoop batter into a larger bowl. Using the original bowl beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Then fold the whipped cream into the pumpkin mascarpone mixture.
In a piping bag fitted with a small round tip or a ziploc bag with the corner tip cut off fill with Nutella, set aside.
In a shallow large dish combine strong coffee with espresso powder and Frangelico, set aside.
Dip each lady finger for 1/2 second into the coffee mixture, be careful as you do not want the fingers to be soggy. Layer the lady fingers around the prepared pan in a single layer. Then scoop 1/3 of the pumpkin cream mixture and spread evenly on top of single layer of lady fingers. Drizzle Nutella in a zig zag or circular pattern to cover the majority of the top. Then dip more lady fingers and create a second layer topping with 1/3 of the pumpkin cream mixture and drizzle with Nutella again. Finally do the exact same for one more layer, finishing the Nutella layer as decorative as you would like.
Wrap the pan with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 6 hours preferably overnight.
