DIRECTIONS (my attempt - remember you can taste while preparing, and change the quantities to your taste) :

1. Add one egg yolk in a recipient large enough to let you use a whisk comfortably.
2. Add some vanilla essence, about half a teaspoon.
3. Add 2 tablespoons of sugar.

Mix with the whisk until combined.

4. Add 250 grams of mascarpone and try to mix with the rest.
5. If it's obvious that it's too hard to mix, add a little bit of milk (about 3 tablespoons) and try again.
6. Keep mixing and maybe adding more milk if needed, until the cream has the consistency you want. Once the mascarpone yields, mixing becomes very easy and the cream becomes very smooth.

For the coffee: Use some espresso if you have, I didn't have any espresso so I used regular coffee instead.

7. Get a kettle and add a cup of water. Add three heaping teaspoons of coffee, four if you want it stronger.
8. Place on low heat, keep there until the coffee starts boiling (the foam rises to the top). Remove from heat and pour the coffee in a small bowl.
9. Add Kahlua liqueur if you want to, about a tablespoon. I did not have any so I skipped this.
10. Add 1 tablespoon and a half of sugar to the coffee. Mix well, taste and add more sugar if you want.
11. Wait a bit until the coffee grounds set to the bottom of the bowl. Take one lady's finger, dip for a very short time in the coffee, place in serving dish. Cover with some of the mascarpone cream, repeat until done.

You can decorate with cocoa powder like in the video, or if you have some chocolate and a grater, or a potato peeler, try to grate/peel some chocolate onto the tiramisu. I used chocolate and it was lovely.

Whenever I buy Ladyfingers with the intention of making Tiramisu, I always eat them up before I get around to buying all the other ingredients. haha
This recipe looks great and I love the vanilla sugar. :))
