Simple Tiramisu Recipe

Most known Italian dessert – Tiramisu. There are many variations of this dessert, some do it with brandy, others with rum, some do with sponge cake, others – ladyfinger biscuits. If you like you can make Tiramisu alcohol-fee. My tip: cook without a pause, if you leave mascarpone cheese and egg mixture for half an hour or longer it won’t get so stiff. Make Tiramisu in one go.

🕐Prep Time: 30min 🕐Cook Time: – min 🥄Serves: 9 cups or 1 big tray


  • 6 eggs
  • 70g of white sugar (for egg yolk)
  • 60g of white sugar (for egg white)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 0.5 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
  • 30-50g of cacao powder
  • 500g mascarpone cheese
  • 500g of ladyfinger biscuits
  • 7 espresso shots
  • 2 tablespoon of dark Rum/Brandy


  1. Prepare espresso, put Rome and mix (best to pour it in a bowl). Let it cool down.
  2. Separate egg yolks from the whites.
  3. In the bowl whisk egg whites with 60g of sugar and a pinch of salt. Whisk it until it becomes stiff. Put it in the fridge.
  4. In a separate bowl whisk egg yolks with sugar and vanilla till it becomes light color. Take the spatula, add mascarpone and gently mix by clockwise.
  5. In the mascarpone mixture add egg whites and again gently mix by clockwise.
  6. Prepare the tray where you will put tiramisu. Put some mascarpone mixture at the bottom and spread it. Start learning: soak ladyfingers biscuits one by one in the coffee mixture (flip 3 times in the coffee mixture) and cover the tray’s bottom, add mascarpone mixture on top, spread it evenly, sprinkle with cocoa and repeat again the process: lady fingers soaked in coffee – mascarpone – cacao. Usually 2-3 layers are enough (depend on the tray size).
  7. The top can be sprinkled with cacao (or you can sprinkle top before serving), covered with plastic wrap and put in the fridge for at least 5h (best – overnight).
