Tiramisu is a classic and timeless dessert that almost everybody loves. This recipe has a creamy consistency and a coffee taste.



Mascarpone mix

  1. Separate the egg yolks and whites into two large bowls. Add half of the sugar to the bowl with egg yolks. Mix with a hand mixer.
  2. Slowly add the mascarpone to the bowl. Continue to mix until it has become solid that it almost stays put when you turn the bowl upside down.
  3. Pour all the whipping cream into the bowl and slowly mix.
  4. Return to the other bowl with the egg whites. Squeeze in a few drops of lemon. Whisk with a hand mixer until the mixture becomes foamy.
  5. Gently pour the egg white mixture into the other bowl. Gently fold the two mixtures together with a dough scraper.


Coffee mix

  1. Pour the coffee into a deep plate. Make sure that the coffee is not too hot.
  2. Mix in the rest of the sugar and wine.


Assembling tiramisu

  1. Use a deep bowl or a cake tin about 20 cm wide. Layer with the mascarpone mix so the height is about 1 cm. Spread evenly.
  2. Take a few savoiardis (ladyfingers) and fully dip them in the coffee mix.
  3. Place the coffee-soaked savoiardis into the bowl or cake tin, so they lay beside each other and cover the whole surface.
  4. Continue adding the layers. Finish off with the mascarpone mix on top.
  5. Grate the chocolate on top of the cake, or drizzle with cocoa powder. You can use a sieve for the cocoa powder.


Serve right away or let it cool in the fridge for a few hours. Enjoy!
