This is the 'new and improved' version of my original Tiramisu post. The difference between both recipes is a bit in the procedure and the addition of eggs. I can't tell you the difference using raw eggs in the 'zabione' mixture makes. I chose not to cook the eggs, because I wanted the flavor of the eggs, the creaminess and the binding factor without the labor of cooking it over the double-boiler. In this recipe, I also whipped together the marscapone and whole cream, then folded in the egg-white mixture thus together forming, a beautiful and light zabione. Being this is a typical Venetian dessert, I think we can all agree that several varieties exist out in the world. I wanted to make this dessert feel and taste as Italian as I could. Thus thinking like an Italian brought me to the winning finale. This was the best Tiramisu I've ever made! I'd try to make this dessert the day before and give it time to fuse and form in the fridge over-night. It serves better, and is more supported during the eating process. Give V2 a try. I'm sure, you'll be as thrilled as we were with this lovely bit of Venice.
