We made this Sunday & boy, was it an exercise in patience. It had to sit in the fridge for 8 excruciating hours. Needless to say, there were few thumb holes mysteriously poked into it before the 8 hours were up. I had no idea the seconds ticked by so slowly.
Why is it called Afghani Zaqi's (formerly Iraqi Zaqi) Tiramisu? Because Zach, my cousin in Afghanistan (doing IT not killing anybody), sent the recipe to me. We changed a couple of things. First, in a double boiler, we cooked the egg & sugar mixture for about 8 minutes, while stirring with a wisk. Also, instead of whipping egg whites we whipped whipping cream & folded it into the egg & sugar mixture.
This photo of sloppy seconds...well, more like sloppy 11ths, is dedicated to Afghani Zaqi...who is somewhere deep in the sandbox, eating shit.
When you get home bro', you know we will throw down & feast. Stay safe.Recipe (as written by Zach)
