Servings 6


  • 2 mixing bowl
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 Rubber spatula
  • 1 shallow dish
  • 1 mold or rectangular dish


Mascarpone cream

  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup sugar (100 g)
  • 8.80 oz mascarpone cheese (250 g)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar (1 packet)

Espresso and liquor

  • 1 cup coffee (250 ml - strong)
  • 2 tbsp dark rum, marsala wine or amaretto


  • 24 ladyfinger cookies
  • unsweetened cocoa powder (for dusting)


Prepare the mascarpone cream

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until pale and creamy.
  • Gently fold in the softened mascarpone until well combined.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • Use a large rubber spatula to carefully fold the whites into the mascarpone mixture, until smooth.

Combine espresso and liquor

  • In a shallow dish, mix the brewed espresso and liquor of your choice (if using). Let it cool.

Assemble the layers

  • Dip each ladyfinger briefly into the espresso mixture, ensuring they are soaked but not overly saturated.
  • Arrange a layer of dipped ladyfingers at the bottom of a serving dish.
  • Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers, creating an even layer.
  • Repeat the layers: create another layer with dipped ladyfingers and top with the remaining mascarpone mixture.
  • Cover and refrigerate the tiramisu for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow flavors to meld.
