Home  >>  Desserts  >>  Tiramisu-A luxurious Traditional Italian dessert

It’s being 1 year since I started blogging & yesterday my blog turned ONE šŸ™‚ . It was such an awesome feeling šŸ™‚ . I was always interested in cooking but blogging was something I never thought of till I came to Canada. Then I realized that this is one thing I love the most, its my passion & I am obsessed with cooking, clicking & sharing šŸ™‚ And now this is a very important part of my life , I simply love it šŸ™‚ So to celebrate this new milestone I decided to make the most delectable Italian dessert Tiramisu.Ā One of lifeā€™s simpler pleasures had always been dessert, soĀ I thought to give it a try and makeĀ this super smooth silky dessert.Ā  That silky delicate cream overflowing with flavor, would offer that ā€œTaste of Heavenā€.


TiramisuĀ (meaning “pick me up” or “lift me up”) is a popular coffee-flavored Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers (Italian: Savoiardi,Ā dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavored with cocoa. Adding rum gives this recipe an Xtra xing šŸ™‚ and you are gonna love it. If you are not a great fan for alcohol just chuck it .This super-simple Italian dessert actually benefits from being made ahead, allowing all the lovely flavors to mingle.


It’s a super simple recipe & the only time you have to wait is when its inside the refrigerator šŸ˜‰ Also for people who don’t eat egg I have an Eggless version of this Tiramisu , hope you are gonna enjoy it as much as I did šŸ™‚

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla essence
  • 1Ā¼ cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1Ā¾ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 -7oz packages Italian Lady fingers
  • 2 cups cold espresso/coffee ( Check stageĀ 2)
  • 1 tbsp dark Rum ( optional)
  • Unsweetened Cocoa powder for dusting

Few Preparation Ā 

1. Make sure that theĀ mascarpone cheese is in room temp.
2. Keep a big bowl in the fridge for 10 min.
3. Separate the egg whites & egg yolks ( you can use the egg white to make scrambled eggs later )


So to make it simple & easy , lets divide the process into 5 stages:

StageĀ 1 :Ā 

  • Combine egg yolks and sugar in the top of a double boiler, over boiling water.
  • Reduce heat to low, and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • In between add 2 tbsp milk.
  • This is your sabayon, remove from the heat and whip yolks until thick and lemon colored.
  • Add Mascarpone to whipped yolks, gently mixĀ until combined.

StageĀ  2 : Preparing the coffeeĀ ConcentrationĀ with rum

  • Take 2 cupsĀ of boiling water and add 2 tsp of coffee powder Ā ( You can also use instantĀ espresso powder ,if you have it handy at home )
  • Lets the water sit for 10-15 min , onced cooled add 1 tbsp of Rum ( now adding Rum is totally optional , you can avoid if you don’t wanna use it )


StageĀ  3 : Ā Preparing the whipping creamĀ 

  • Take the cold vessel out of fridge & take the heavy whipping cream.
  • Whip cream to stiff peaks adding the vanilla essence. ( around 10-12 min in high speed using hand blender)


StageĀ  4 : Gently fold the whipped cream in the mascarpone sabayon mixture and set aside.

StageĀ  5 : Arranging the TiramisuĀ 

  • Take a 9 inch baking dish,Ā Ā Dip the lady fingers into the coffee-rum mixture just long enough to get them wet, do not soak them!
  • Arrange the lady fingers in the bottom of theĀ baking dish (or container similarly sized)
  • Spoon half the mascarpone cream filling over the lady fingers.
  • Repeat process with another layer of lady fingers and cream.
  • Dust the coco powder in between each layer.
  • Refrigerate 6 hours or overnight.
  • Dust with cocoa before serving too šŸ™‚ Enjoy ting !!!!!

Eggless versionĀ 


  • 8 ounceĀ of Mascarpone Cheese, softened
  • 1-Ā½ cup of Heavy Cream
  • 1/3 cup of Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla essence
  • 2 cups of Really Strong Coffee or Espresso, cooled
  • 1 Tbsp of Dark Rum
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 30 LadyfingersĀ 


  • Ā In a large bowl whip the heavy cream and set in the fridge until you are ready to use it (cream stays stiffer longer if kept cold) .
  • In a large bowl mixĀ together the mascarpone, vanilla and sugar, fold in half of the whipped cream into mascarpone mixture to lighten.
  • Fold in remaining whipped cream being careful not to over mix.
  • ToĀ assemble use the same process as above. šŸ™‚

            So true Chahat!! šŸ™‚

            No problem, pleasure was mine!

            I have a question – I have Mascarpone cheese left over. What other dish/dessert I could make so that I use it and don’t have to throw? My heart tears for throwing food just because it is expired and couldn’t be used. Please let me know.
