Mix egg yellow with sugar in a bowl with electric mixer until smooth in consistency. Add 2 measures of Sambuca, Yellow colour and Vanilla essence. Then mix in Mascarpone Cheese until mixed thoroughly.
In a seperate bowl mix the egg whites until stiff (can turn bowl upside-down without the white falling out!). Fold the white into the yellow mixture with a wooden spoon. The mixture should be a lot lighter now in consistency.
Meanwhile mix 2 measures of Sambuca with the coffee and ensure it is cooled.
To prepare on in dish: Start with a layer of the mixture. One by one, dip the ladyfingers into the coffee and place start a layer of these on top of the mixture layer.
NOTE: Ensure you only dip ladyfigers into coffee for 3 seconds maximum and shake excess coffee before applying to layer. This ensures that your Tiramisu will keep a good pleasant consistency without getting soggy quickly.
Repeat layers, facing the lady fingers the opposite direction on second layer (example: if facing the length of the tray on layer one, face them sideways on next layer). Lastly, top off with a layer of the mixture.
Place in the fridge for about 4-5 hours to firm and cool.
To serve cut portions and place on a plate. With a sieve dust the top of each portion with chocolate powder.
