Best ever Tiramisu'

traditional Tiramisu' recipe from my childhood days in Northern Italy.

  • Yield: 1 serving
  • Prep time:30 Minutes
  • Chilling time:3 Hours


  • 16 ounce(s) Mascarpone cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • sugar
  • 1 large box(es) ladyfingers (crunchy)
  • 1 tablespoon(s) cocoa
  • 1 cup(s) strong coffee or espresso
  • 1 tablespoon(s) Amaretto


- separate egg whites from yolks.

- mix egg yolks, mascarpone cheese and sugar (to taste, approximately 1/2 cup) in a bowl.

- beat egg whites and a tablespoon of sugar until they hold a soft peak.

- gently incorporate mascarpone mix with egg whites. Do not over-stir, the mix should remain frothy.

- mix the espresso (room temperature) with the Amaretto.

- In a large flat-bottomed serving dish, place a layer of ladyfingers and drizzle a couple of tablespoons of coffee and Amaretto mix. Cover with the mascarpone cream. Add another layer of ladyfingers, coffee/Amaretto mix and mascarpone cream.

- finish by dusting cocoa on the surface using a small strainer to achieve even coverage.

- cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours (ideally overnight).

Serve and enjoy!
