Tiramisu Recipe

This is a delicious Tiramisu recipe that isn’t too difficult to prepare, and makes you look like a real chef.  Make this the night ahead of time and refrigerate.



Prep Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 4-6 Servings


  • 6 Egg Yolks (use pasteurized eggs)
  • 3 T Sugar
  • 1 lb. Mascarpone Cheese
  • 1½ Cups Espresso (chilled)
  • 2 T Dark Rum
  • 2 T Coffee Liquer (i.e. kahlua)
  • 24 Lady Fingers (shop ahead for these...can sometimes be difficult to find)
  • ½ Cup Chocolate Shavings


  1. In a large bowl, whisk egg and sugar until thick and pale yellow (about 5 mins.).
  2. Add mascarpone and beat until smooth.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of the espresso and the 2 T of Kahlua, and mix until combined.
  4. In a shallow dish add the leftover espresso and rum (liquid should be about ¼" deep).
  5. Dip 12 lady fingers in for 2-5 seconds (one side only). Don't let them get soaked all the way through, as this could result in a liquidy tiramisu.
  6. Place the lady fingers, liquid side down, on bottom of a pan (this will be used as your serving dish). The pan should be sized to just fit 12 lady fingers.
  7. Spread half the cheese mixture over the lady fingers.
  8. Dip the leftover lady fingers in the espresso liquid for ~3 seconds on one side, and place these on top of the 1st layer of mascarpone, liquid side down.
  9. Spread the remaining mascarpone mixture on top of the second layer of lady fingers.
  10. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  11. When ready to serve, top with the chocolate shavings, and you're ready to go.
