Every meal you serve to guests deserves a conversation piece. Since dessert is the most creative course -think Tiramisu – the ubiquitous Italian dessert, which means, “lift me up”.

Legends have it that Tiramisu was the go-to “lift me up” of Italian courtesans when they took a coffee break. It was thought to contain aphrodisiac properties.

As complicated as Tiramisu might seem, it’s an easy dish to prepare. However, its specialness is best reserved for those times you desire to impress your guests. Like when the boss comes to dinner…

Tiramisu Tips and Techniques

To prettify your presentation, put Tiramisu in chilled champagne glasses and serve on a silver tray. Be aware, that serving it to your circle of friends may ignite a friendly feud among them, with each creative cook trying to outshine the other’s culinary abilities!

Assembling Tiramisu is easy-peasy and a marvelous choice for summer months, as no baking, is required. However, it’s not a spur of the moment throw together. For the height of awesomeness, the ingredients must meld in the refrigerator covered, overnight if possible, or a minimum of 12 hours, the longer the better.

How to make tiramisu

About eggs. If you have a concern about incorporating raw eggs into a dish, substitute whipped cream. Either way, the final result is fantabulous.

Marsala wine is traditionally used in Tiramisu. If you want to express your creative side, substitute Kahlua, Sambuca, brandy or port wine. You may omit liqueur if serving this cake to kids or non-drinkers.

Tiramisu Cake Recipe

Texture, as they say, makes or breaks your Tiramisu. It should not be too hard or too soft, but just right. For a perfect consistency, don’t dip the Savoiardi, instead, lightly roll the ladyfingers in espresso mixture.

Authentic Italian chefs would cringe in horror, but if you really dislike coffee, you can substitute chocolate. A lotta chocolate.

Final Words:

Tiramisu Ingredients

Now you can have your Tiramisu and drink it too! Iced Tiramisu Lattes are refreshing on a hot day. When you fancy an alcoholic beverage, try Tiramisu martinis.

Of course, nothing beats the real thing – creamy, delicious and decadent – Tiramisu is truly one-size-fits-all for special occasions.

Ready in
12 hours, 30 minutes
  1. Beat yolks and sugar in stand mixer on medium high for 12 minutes (until white and thick).
  2. Add vanilla and mascarpone, beat until just combined. Transfer mixture to a bowl, set aside.
  3. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks and gradually fold the mascarpone/egg yolk mixture into egg whites and set aside. Put in the fridge for approx. 2 hours (this is optional but this makes the cream's consistency a bit thicker).
  4. Mix the espresso with the coffee liquor together and dip the lady fingers into the mixture just long enough to get them wet, do not soak them!
  5. Arrange the lady fingers in the bottom of a square baking dish.
  6. Spoon half the mascarpone cream filling over the lady fingers.
  7. Repeat process with another layer of lady fingers and add another layer of tiramisu cream.

  9. Dust with cocoa powder just before serving.
