Authentic Tiramisu

Ingredients to make Authentic Tiramisu

  • 4 eggs, yolks and whites separated
  • 250 gm Mascarpone Cheese, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup Castor sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup Warm Espresso Coffee - Strong
  • 2 tbsp Liquor of your choice - Kalhua/Tia Maria/Chocolate liquor etc
  • 200 gm Savoiardi Biscuits / Lady Fingers (24 pc approx)
  • Cocoa, for dusting

How to make Authentic Tiramisu

  1. In a bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar with an electric blender until its stiff and pale in colour.
  2. Gently fold in mascarpone cheese and vanilla extract, until its well combined without any lumps in it.
  3. In another clean bowl, beat egg whites until very stiff. Gently fold it into the egg yolk - mascarpone mixture, and mix until incorporated.
  4. Mix coffee and liquor together. (optional - I didn't add any alcohol) Quickly dip the biscuits in coffee for just a second and line the bottom of the 8" square dish.
  5. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over it and then top it with another layer of coffee dipped lady finger biscuits.
  6. Spread the remaining cream. Cling wrap and refrigerate it for 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  7. Dust with cocoa powder or chocolate shavings, just before serving.
  8. Notes: I have used 3 tbsp of moccona freeze dried coffee powder to make 1 1/2 cup of strong coffee. I didn't use any liquor, but you can use Kalhua, Amaretto, Irish cream, Rum, Brandy etc.
  9. For the vegetarian version, skip eggs and use 2 cups of whipped cream + Sugar + mascarpone cheese mixture. And follow the recipe for the rest of the procedure.
  10. Do not dip the biscuits in coffee for more than a second or it will become soggy. Dust with cocoa powder only before serving or it gets soaked up in the cream pretty quickly.
  11. Its a very easy to make dessert, but just try to plan and make it a day before. As it tastes fantastic if chilled for 12-24 hrs.
  12. You can assemble Tiramisu in many ways - Fancy glasses, Square baking dish, Round or Rectangle Baking dish etc. I would suggest to assemble in a dish where you can see the layers.
  13. They also freeze beautifully. And can be defrost just the night before in a refrigerator.
