Today, I am so excited to share with you my Tiramisu’s recipe.


This Italian dessert is my favorite.  It’s wonderful for a special occasion. I always make it with my daughter.
It’s easy to make and so delicious. It’s an amazing recipe to impress your guests.
Ladyfingers are soaked in the coffee. Mascarpone is sweetened with sugar and vanilla sugar. This cake is a great combination between biscuits and Mascarpone. They are many ways to serve Tiramisu : square dish, rectangle dish. It would also make very nice individual servings in dessert glasses!
Serving : 10 -12

Ingredients :

  • 16 oz (450 g) mascarpone (check best before date)
  • 4 eggs
  • 7 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 envelope vanilla sugar (0.32 oz) ( easily found at any large grocery store, I use Dr.Oetker brand)
  • 17 oz (480 g) ladyfingers
  • 4 cups coffee
  • 3 tablespoons amaretto liquor
  • cocoa powder

Directions :

  1. Make coffee, add amaretto. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix mascarpone, egg yolks, sugar and vanilla sugar.
  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Add the egg white in the mixture mascarpone-egg yolk-sugar.
  4. Dip ladyfingers briefly in coffee and put them in a dish (sugar side under).  Spread half the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers. Repeat with remaining ladyfingers and mascarpone mixture.  Cover and chill overnight.
  5. The day after, dust with cocoa powder (not too much) just before serving.
