Tiramisu` – Classic Italian dessert


Tiramisu` – Classic Italian dessert

Love Tiramisu`! This wonderfully easy to prepare dessert that leave you coming back for more. I prepared a large dish to enjoy with our Christmas dinner and now we have left over. And, yes, I do not mind having leftover tiramisu any days of the week.

From our table to your table, enjoy!!





14 ounces (400gr) Savoiardi cookies

14 ounces (400 gr) Mascarpone cheese

4 eggs

4 ounces (100 gr) sugar

2 small cups of very strong coffee

Powder Cocoa


Separate the eggs white and yolk and place them each on a separate bowl.

Work the egg yolks with the sugar until a cream is formed. Add the mascarpone to the mixture.

In a separate bowl beat the egg white until soft peaks are formed.

Fold the egg whites to the eggs-sugar mixture.

Dip the savoiardi in the coffee (not too soggy) and place in a plate which can hold two layers of cookies.

Cover the first layer of savoiardi with some of the mascarpone cream.

Alternate each layer with savoiardi and cream ending with the last layer to be the cream.

Refrigerate for a couple of hours. Dust the top with cocoa powder and enjoy.

    I’m happy to have discovered your blog through Conor. I like your recipe for tiramisu as it sounds very light with the beaten egg whites.

      Good Morning Karen,
      Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, I sincerely appreciate it and I would hope you will come back and read more of my posting.
      The tiramisu is indeed very light therefore guilt free, or so I like to think as I devour a huge portion.
      Happy New Year!!
