COOKS IN: 30 minutes plus chilling time



  • 4 medium eggs
  • 114 g sugar
  • 30 ml water
  • 250 g mascarpone cheese
  • 200 g whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon rum or amaretto


  • 250 g savoiardi (ladyfingers)
  • 4 cups espresso coffee
  • Cocoa for dusting


  1. Prepare the espresso coffee without sugar and after a few minutes on the room temperature put in the fridge to cool. 

  2. Whisk the egg yolks with electric mixer in a large bowl.

  3. In a small saucepan put the water and sugar and over low heat until you get a syrup. When the syrup is ready pour it over egg yolks and continue whisking with an electric whisk on the highest setting for about 5 minutes until the mixture is pale and fluffy. If you wish, add one tablespoon of rum, amaretto or any other liqueur. 

  4. First fold mascarpone cheese to the egg mixture and then whipped cream. The tiramisu mixture should be creamy and perfectly mixed.

  5. Dip briefly each ladyfinger in the coffee and make a single layer of them in the prepared serving dish, then spread the half of tiramisu cream over them. Add a new layer of ladyfingers soaked in coffee and put the remaining cream on the top of them.

  6. Finish with dusting the tiramisu with a cocoa. Chill until ready to serve, but for at least 4 hours.
