Get ready to indulge in the rich and decadent flavors of one of Italy's most beloved desserts: Tiramisù. With its layers of creamy mascarpone cheese, rich espresso-soaked ladyfingers, and a dusting of cocoa powder, this classic Italian dessert is a true feast for the senses.
Turns out it is easy to make at home! I can promise you will stop ordering this dessert in restaurants 😉

Ingredients

  • Egg yolks 5 pcs

  • Sugar 10 tablespoons

  • Mascarpone 750 gr

  • Savoiardi biscuits 24 pcs

  • Espresso 300 ml

  • Unswetened cocoa powder to sprinkle

  • Whisky tumblers or little glass bowls 8 pcs (depending on the size, you will have more or less portions in the end)

Directions

  • Prepare espressos, pour into a wide bowl and put in the fridge.
  • Put the yolks into a big bowl.
  • Add mascarpone cheese, sugar and beat wit a wire whisk or rotating beater till the cream becomes smooth and without any lump.
  • Build the first portion of tiramisu:
  • Dip one Savoiardi biscuit into coffee and make 4 half-turns very fast (0.5 sec per turn)
  • Break the biscuit into 2 halfs with hands and put it into the bowl
  • Add one spoon of mascarpone
  • Repeat this layer (biscuit + cream) another 2 times pushing every time the Savoiardi on the cream to let it adhere to the cream. In total, each serving would have 3 biscuits and 3 layers of mascarpone.
  • You can use a pastry bag with nozzles to decorate the last mascarpone layer.
  • Repeat the same for the remaining portions.
  • Put the tiramisù portions in the fridge for ~2 hours but never overnight!
  • When it's time to serve, sprinkle every tiramisù with cocoa powder. Serve cold.

Tips & Tricks

  • Do not leave tiramisù in the fridge overnight as the biscuits will soak too much liquid.
