Tiramisu recipe – reseta di Tiramisu

Tiramisu meaning “lift me up”,  is a popular coffee-flavored Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavored with cocoa. The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of cakes and other desserts.

This recipe is easy to make and you don’t need a lot of ingredients. Let’s start baking!!
  • 5 egg Yolks
  • ¾ cup of sugar
  • 5 egg white
  • Pinch of salt
  • 455 gr. Mascarpone
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 ½ cup Decaf coffee
  • 400 gr. Ladyfingers
  • 2 table spoon cacao powder


    The Coffee mixture

    Combine the decaf coffee with the milk in a small bowl and set aside. 

    The filling
    • Beat the egg yolks and sugar with a mixer till a smooth cream.
    • Mix the mascarpone with the egg yolk mixture until well combined.
    • Beat the egg white and pinch of salt till stiff peaks
    • Fold half of the egg white into the egg yolk-mascarpone mixture, then the remaining half just until fully incorporated. Don’t beat otherwise you will lose all the air.

    Assemble Tiramisu

    • Dip the ladyfingers (per layer) very quickly into the coffee, and line in your bowl
    • Spread a layer of the mascarpone filling over the lady fingers and repeat this till you reach the top of the bowl ending with the mascarpone filling.
    • Dust the top with cocoa powder. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
    • When ready to serve, dust with extra cocoa powder. Leave out at room temperature about 20 minutes before serving.

      Important: Tiramisu can be chilled up to 2 days, but no longer or else the ladyfingers will break down too much.
