Kitchen Tools and Equipment

To make this fabulous Italian dessert you need a ceramic baking pan. For 8 people you need one of about 30 x 19 cm (12 x 8 inch), like the one we used in this recipe. There are several types but have a look at this set of Ceramic Baking Dish. They are perfect casseroles even for lasagna.

You absolutely need an electric stand mixer that really is a great help for making a perfect tiramisu. We opted for the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5 Quart Stand Mixer but there are other very good brands. For example, another excellent and less expensive stand mixer is this 5.5-Quart Stand Mixer by Cuisinart.

You can also prepare tiramisu recipe with an electric hand mixer: try KitchenAid Speed Digital Hand Mixer with Turbo.

How to Make Tiramisu: Directions

authentic italian tiramisu step 1

Step 1) – First of all, make the coffee. For a quick and delicious Italian coffee, we used an Espresso Machine. Then add 2 tablespoons of Rum or Marsala wine.

This is optional. If you don’t like liqueurs or you are making Tiramisu for children, don’t use it. Your tiramisu is great all the same, even without liqueur. Set aside and let cool.

Step 2) – Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Set aside the yolks and whip the egg whites until stiff: you will get at it when the the egg whites will not move if you turn the bowl over.

Remember that to whip egg whites to stiff peaks, there should be no trace of yolk. Once ready, set aside.

Step 3) – Now, in a bowl, beat the egg yolks with sugar until light and smooth, 3 to 5 minutes.

Step 4) – In the meantime, pour the mascarpone cheese into a bowl and work it with a spoon to make it softer. Mascarpone cheese must be of excellent quality, creamy and thick. When the yolks are ready add the mascarpone cheese.

Step 5) – Using the flexible-edge k-beater, slowly whip the mascarpone cream for 2 to 3 minutes. Now add the stiffly beaten egg whites.

Step 7) – Now let’s prepare the layers of ladyfingers and mascarpone cream. You can make 2 or more layers, depending on the width and depth of your pan.

Dip the ladyfingers quickly (1 or 2 seconds) into the coffee. Then arrange the ladyfingers in the casserole of your liking.

IMPORTANT. The ladyfingers should not soak too much coffee, otherwise the tiramisu will be too rich in coffee and runny.

Step 8) – Arrange them so that they cover the bottom of the casserole. Then spread the mascarpone cream over the ladyfingers.

Step 9) – Add another layer of ladyfingers and then top with more mascarpone cream. If you are making the last layer, spread the mascarpone cream generously.

Step 10) – Finally, sprinkle with cocoa powder. You can even add dark chocolate chips, if you like.

Allow to rest 3 hours in the refrigerator before serving. Even better if you prepare the tiramisu the day before, letting it rest overnight.

How to Pasteurize Eggs For Tiramisu

Tiramisu in Italy has always been made with fresh eggs and it’s well known that it would be a good idea to pasteurize the eggs before using them in the preparation of this dessert. Below we are going to show you how to pasteurize yolks and egg whites using a hot syrup made with water and sugar.

How to Pasteurize the Yolks

pasteurized eggs step 1

Step 1) – First, place 50 g (¼ cup) of sugar with 25 ml (about 2 tablespoons) of water in a saucepan. Stir to dissolve the sugar as much as possible and then bring this syrup to a boil, stirring constantly.

The syrup will be ready when it reaches the temperature of 121 ° C (250 F).

It’s very important that the syrup does not exceed 121 ° C (250 F), temperature after which the sugar starts to caramelize (you will notice because it starts to darken). So measure the temperature with a kitchen thermometer. If you don’t have a thermometer, the syrup will be ready when small white bubbles form on the surface.

pasteurized eggs step 2

Step 2) – Meanwhile, start whipping the egg yolks with a mixer at full speed. When the syrup is hot and ready, drizzle it over the yolks while continuing to whisk.

Process the cream until completely cool (about 10 minutes). To tell if the cream is cool enough, simply place your hands on the bowl. When the bowl is cold, the cream is ready.

This is the famous pate à bombe, a fluid, clear cream made from eggs, sugar and water that is the basis of many pastry preparations.

Now it is time to add the mascarpone. But first let’s see how to pasteurize the egg whites.

How to Pasteurize the Egg Whites

pasteurized eggs step 3-min

Step 3) – As for the egg whites, prepare a syrup with 50 g (¼ cup) of sugar and 25 ml (about 2 tablespoons) of water. Meanwhile, start whipping the egg whites with the mixer at full speed.

When you see that they are whipping well, slowly add the hot syrup in a trickle. Continue whipping the egg whites until stiff for another 10 minutes.

Now the stiffly beaten pasteurized egg whites are ready. Add them to the mascarpone cream and continue following the tiramisu recipe.

How to Pasteurize Whole Eggs

With this simple procedure you pasteurized yolks and egg whites separately, obviously because the tiramisu recipe called for it. But be aware that you can pasteurize whole eggs as well. Here’s how to do it.

Proceed in the same way, preparing syrup with 100 g (1/2 cup) sugar and 50 ml (about 4 tablespoons) water per 4 medium whole eggs.

Beat the eggs with a mixer and slowly pour in the hot syrup in a trickle. Continue beating the eggs until the cream is cold (put your hands on the bowl: when the bowl is cold, the cream is ready).

Now the eggs are pasteurized, fresh and safe and you can safely use them for your fantastic recipes.

Individual Tiramisu Trifle

Suppose you have guests and want to serve authentic Italian tiramisu in very chic and elegant individual cups. First, you will need individual tiramisu trifles, whether they are glass or plastic. Then proceed to assemble the tiramisu by following the steps below.

individual tiramisu trifle step 1

Step 1) – Place a tablespoon or two of mascarpone cream in the bottom of the cup. Break a ladyfinger into 4 pieces and dunk them into the coffee.

Step 2) – Lay them on top of the cream. If necessary, use two ladyfinger cookies.

Tiramisu Recipe: some Tips and Variants

How to Replace Mascarpone Cheese for Tiramisu

When we talk about mascarpone, we are referring to a very famous cheese, especially in northern Italy. It differs from most other cheeses because it’s not made directly from milk but from its cream.

It has a color that is usually between snow white and straw yellow. In terms of flavor, however, it’s very delicate, slightly tending toward sweet.

As we mentioned, the traditional Italian tiramisu recipe is based on mascarpone. However, there are some variations of Tiramisu without mascarpone.

To prepare a delicious tiramisu without using mascarpone among the ingredients, it’s necessary to modify the cream recipe. In what way? Let’s see, you can use:

  • cream cheese;
  • fresh ricotta cheese;
  • heavy cream for desserts, vegetal or vaccine.

Using any of these ingredients, or combining them according to your preferences, you can prepare a cream for your tiramisu that is different from the traditional one but just as delicious.

For example, if you want to make a light but still tasty tiramisu, you can mix light cream cheese and ricotta cheese. For a softer, sweeter cream, use cream cheese and heavy whipped cream.

IMPORTANT. For 250 g (1/2 lb) of cream, use the same ingredients, but, after adding 2 tablespoons of sugar, taste to see if it’s sweet enough or not.

Chantilly Cream

Another alternative to mascarpone cheese could be the Chantilly cream, which you can make it very easily at home. Use heavy cream (cold, taken directly from the fridge) and icing sugar (even better if vanilla flavoured).

The acing sugar can be chosen, according to taste, in a dose that can vary between 125 g (1 cup) and 250 g (2 cups) per liter  (4 cups) of cream. Whip the cream with an electric mixer. Add the sugar and mix. Proceed by following the recipe above without adding 100 g of granulated sugar, because the chantilly cream is already sweet.

How to Replace Eggs for Tiramisu

Not everybody likes or can eat eggs, so if you want to make the tiramisu recipe without eggs, you can replace them with whipped cream. However, the dosage of the ingredients must be slightly modified and instead of the granulated sugar use icing sugar. Here’s how to make the cream for 6 people:

  • 350 g (about 12 oz) of mascarpone cheese
  • 300 ml (1 1/4 cup) of fresh whipping cream
  • 120 g (1 cup) of icing sugar

In a bowl, whip the cream together with half the icing sugar and put it in the refrigerator. In another bowl, whip the mascarpone with the remaining icing sugar. Then with a spatula incorporate the whipped cream with mascarpone cream. Now mascarpone cream without eggs for your tiramisu is ready! Soak the ladyfingers in the coffee and then proceed to make the layers as described in the recipe above.

If you transfer the mascaprone cream without eggs into a pastry bag with a 15 mm smooth nozzle and form round tufts on the layer of ladyfingers, instead of spreading it, your tiramisu will be not only good but also pretty stylish!

Tiramisu: How, How Long and Where to Store it

You can keep tiramisu a couple of days (at most) well covered in the refrigerator. It can be frozen and kept in the freezer for about 2 weeks.

Wines

Tiramisu and wines, an extraordinary blend of flavors that must be expertly balanced to enhance the right combination between this dessert and his drink.

The ideal pairing for this dessert is a passito wine, intense in aroma and taste. You can try:

Another interesting combination is with Marsala, a fortified wine often used in the preparation of tiramisu itself. We recommend Marco de Bartoli – Vigna la Miccia Marsala Superiore Oro

Origin of Tiramisu

The origins of Tiramisu are not certain. Piedmont, Tuscany, Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia are the Italian regions fighting for the paternity of this wonderful dessert.

We make our own the authoritative conclusions of the Tiramisu Academy

The Academy places the origins of this dessert in the Treviso area (a city in Veneto), between the second half of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century.

Tiramisù is certainly the evolution of a very simple dessert called “sbatutin” (beaten). It was a cream based on beaten egg yolks and sugar, served together with crumbly biscuits, specially prepared for children’s snacks.

For this reason, the use of liqueur does not appear in the official recipe.

Subsequently and gradually they began to add coffee, mascarpone and cocoa, giving rise to the wonderful dessert that we all know.

The people from Treviso who emigrated abroad were the first to export and spread the traditional Italian Tiramisu recipe to the world.

  1. Wow!
    I’ve made this recipe a few times. The only adjustment I did lately was to use cane sugar infused with some vanilla bean pods and 600g mascarpone instead of 500.
    I used a pyrex dish (9.5” wide x 7.5” deep x 2.75” high) and got three beautiful layers.

  2. Hi. This is the only tiramisu recipe I will ever use. I am super picky when it comes to a good tiramisu. And over and over again I have been told I make the best tiramisu in the world (thanks to you!!!!!!!!!)

    I also wanted to add, to the people who have ended up with a mixture too runny: pour the mixture into a larger bowl/baking dish. In a seperate bowl, whip up some double cream with icing sugar and gently fold it into the mascarpone until desired consistency. I usually 4x the tiramisu recipe, so I’d do 1l double cream if this happened to me (it did once because I used a bowl that was too deep and it deflated the egg whites when I folded them in). Yes it won’t taste as good, but it will probably still be the best tiramisu you’ve ever tried 😉

  3. Hello, so this was my very first time ever making a tiramisu. I even live in Italy (ha ha) with my italian partner and our 2 kids. I made this for his birthday recently using your recipe. I didn’t use any rum or wine and I swapped the coffee for orzo so the kids would sleep. Everyone enjoyed it even our friends. Easy to follow and good tips. The best tiramisu recipe I have ever tried! Thank you (grazie mille)

    • Hi Lucinda!
      When tiramisu comes out runny, it’s usually because there’s too much liquid in it. The liquid can be given by:
      Too many eggs – Eggs must be weighed accurately (see ingredients section)
      The egg white not whipped – It must be whipped very firmly
      Too much coffee
      Mascarpone too soft – Mascarpone cheese must be creamy but thick. When you put a spoon in the mascarpone, the spoon must remain standing.
      I have noticed that the most frequent problem concerns Mascarpone. Next time, if you have too soft mascarpone, don’t add the whipped egg whites. Make tiramisu with yolks only, doubling the doses of eggs and sugar.

    • I made this recipe 3 times so far. The first two times it came out so perfect i was taking pictures. The third time? Cream was runny, it didnt thicken. One out of 2 things couldve gone wrong, or both:
      1) i soaked the ladyfingers too much
      2) i shouldve folded the mascarpone with the yolks instead of mixing it with a mixer.

      If the ladyfingers are too soaked, they wont absorb any moisture from the cream. And Mascarpone will turn to liquid if mixed too much. This is my opinion on this problem.

      Reply
      • Nope, i was wrong. Here is the update: if you measure the yolks and whites, and make sure they are 220g, your cream will be perfect. The recipe here is perfect, someone just has to listen, and follow it 🙂

        I cracked 4 eggs into a measuring cup (the same organic eggs i always use), and the total was less than 220g. I added egg number 5 and there you go, exactly 220g. See that?

        Follow the recipe!

  5. Ok I see where you pasteurized your egg whites and yolk with sugar syrup. Do you still add the remaining sugar after you add the syrup to your yolk?

    Reply
    • Hi Tricia!
      So for 4 eggs you need 100 grams of sugar. If you want to pasteurize the eggs, use 50g + 25ml of water for the yolks and 50g + 25ml of water for the egg whites. You can also make tiramisu with just the yolks, without the whipped egg whites. The cream is thicker. In this case for 4 egg yolks add all the sugar, that is 100 g + 50 ml of water.

    • Hi Valerie,
      I would tell you to use 2/3 of the doses … Which in my opinion becomes complicated. After all, it is a little smaller than the one we used. I would keep the doses of this recipe. With what is left over, make small tiramisu in glasses. The ones you usually use for water. You can give them to some friends or eat them on sad evenings …;-)

  7. I made this recipe for Easter. My problem was that I dipped the lady fingers into the Expresso and Rum mixture very lightly. So what happened was that I really could not taste the Expresso mixture and I had a lot left over. Please tell me where I went wrong and what I should have done. Thank you.

    Reply
    • Hi Janine,
      Nothing wrong. It is true that when you dip the ladyfingers in coffee you have to do it quickly so as not to soak them too much, but at least give them time to soak … Next time try to do this: dip the cookie in the coffee on one side only, for 2 seconds. Then place it in the pan with the coffee-soaked side up. In this way the coffee gradually drops to wet the underside of the biscuit as well. Over time and a little more experience you will see that your tiramisu will be perfect! Ciao

      • Amore, thank you so much for the recipes! First of all, i used your recipe for savoiardi and they came out perfect! Then i did your tiramisu, and THAT came out perfect with your savoiardi. Absolutely perfect and to my own taste, and no problems at all, the ladyfingers absorbed the coffee and were not soggy but half brown half yellow. Youre amazing

    Reply
    • Hi Muskan,
      Usually the mascarpone cream turns out runny when the exact dosage of the eggs is not observed (about 220 g or 7,7 oz without shells) or (more likely) the mascarpone was too liquid. Mascapone cheese must be quite thick; if you put it in a bowl and put a spoon in the center of the cheese, the spoon remains standing upright.

      Thanks for your comment! In Italy the traditional tiramisu recipe is made with marsala. Some people use rum or brandy. Amaretto liqueur is used by very few. But more and more often the greatest Italian chefs don’t add liquor in tiramisu, so….I think it’s up to you now 😉

In some places it was perfect but mostly the cream just went down in bowl (we ate it from the bowl where it was ). Thank you so very much for this delicious recipe Barbara!

  20. Unfortunately that egg pasteurisation method does not work. My perfect tiramisu gave us bloaters and diarrhea, it might work if you add the eggs into the hot vessel but it does not by adding the hot sugar to the eggs. 4 egg whites is to much liquid I guess. Had made a lemon cream where you pasteurise the eggs by whipping them up on a benmari.Next time without eggs

    • Could be the mascarpone quality? Mascarpone has to be almost as thick as Philadelphia cheese. Maybe the doses? However let it rest in the fridge; the cold should make it more solid. Or add mascarpone, but the cold should be enough. And then enjoy your great Tiramisu! 😉

      • Hi Stephanie,
        it’s better if you make it the night before, so that with 24 hours of rest in the fridge all the flavors blend together perfectly, and the biscuits take the right humidity. But if you leave it in the fridge for several days, the egg whites start to release water, even if they have been whisked stiff.
