Original Tiramisu Cake

Updated: Mar 11

  • This is the original recipe of the Italian Tiramisu dessert. A creamy, bubbly cake that everyone loves, it's very easy to prepare and ready quickly. You will only need a few ingredients for this. The cake is phenomenal! Follow recipe.

Ingredients: simple, total time: 50 min.
  • 300 g Savoiardi /Ladyfingers

  • 500 g of Mascarpone

  • 4 medium eggs (about 220 g — without shells)

  • 100 g of sugar

  • 300 ml of coffee (better if espresso)

  • 2 Tablespoons of rum or Marsala (optional)

  • unsweetened cocoa powder

For this recipe, we opted for:
  1. A ceramic baking pan of 30 × 19 cm.

  2. An electric stand mixer really is a great help for making a perfect tiramisu.

  3. First, make the coffee. For a quick and delicious Italian coffee, I used an Espresso Machine.

  4. Now add 2 Tbsp of rum or Marsala wine (that’s optional. If you don’t like liqueurs, or you are making tiramisu for children, don’t use it) then set aside and let it cool.

  5. Separate egg whites from yolks and remember that in order to whip the egg whites pretty stiff, there should not be any trace of yolk.

  6. Take a bowl and whip the egg whites until stiff: you will get at it when the egg whites will not move if you turn the bowl over. When ready, set aside.

  7. Now in another bowl (or the clean same one) whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until pale and smooth, 3–5 minutes. When ready, add Mascarpone cheese.

  8. Whisk the cream slowly with the electric mixer. Now add stiffen egg whites.

  9. Mix with a wooden spoon, from bottom to top. Mix slowly until it’s smooth and creamy.

  10. Now dip quickly Savoiardi Ladyfingers into the coffee.

  11. Then place them in a ceramic or glass cooking pan.

  12. Spread the mascarpone cream on top of the Savoiardi.

  13. Add another layer of Savoiardi and then cover with more mascarpone cream.

  14. Finally, sprinkle with cocoa powder. Let rest 3 hours in the refrigerator before serving (even better if you make the tiramisu the day before, letting it rest all night long in the fridge). You can add chocolate flakes on top according to taste.

Buon appetito!

 NOTE: Cookies should not engage too much coffee, otherwise your Tiramisu will turn out too soggy.
