Tiramisu Easy Recipe
- 16 oz mascarpone (450 grams)
- 10 oz ladyfingers (300 grams)
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup espresso
- 1 cup rum
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
How To Make Tiramisu
- MEDIUM BOWL: whisk the eggs and sugar in a medium glass bowl or double boiler.
- Place the bowl over a pot with simmering water. Make sure the bowl does not touch the water underneath. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has thickened, around 8-9 minutes.
- LARGE BOWL: put the mascarpone in a large bowl, pour the mixture of eggs and sugar into the bowl, and whisk until combined.
- Whisk the cold heavy cream and vanilla extract in a stand mixer, or another large bowl, and use an electric handheld mixer with a whisk attachment. Start on low speed and slowly increase speed until you have stiff peaks.
- Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture.
- Dip (for just 1 second) the ladyfingers into the coffee that has been mixed with rum.
- Arrange the ladyfingers in a dish. I used an 8×8 dish, but you can use a 9×13 dish also.
- Top that layer with mascarpone and continue until the top.
- Dust with cocoa powder and chill in the refrigerator for a few hours. Enjoy!
What is Tiramisu made of?
Tiramisu is made of ladyfingers that have been soaked in coffee and arranged in between layers of mascarpone with heavy cream.
Is there always alcohol in Tiramisu?
Many tiramisu recipes include either rum or other liqueur, but you can definitely make this recipe without any alcohol, and it will delicious too.
Equipment I use to make Tiramisu
If you don’t have a stand mixer you can use an electric handheld mixer with a whisk attachment. To make this tiramisu recipe I used this immersion mixer that I’ve been a fan of for many years. It also helps me prepare quick morning smoothies, and my favorite butternut squash soup.
I used this 8×8 glass dish, but any similar dish will do. You can even use individual bowls.
And these are the glass mixing bowls that are essential for any kitchen. They are so great!
A final note!
To make gluten-free tiramisu, you can use Schar’s gluten-free ladyfingers which I purchased at the supermarket.
You can prepare tiramisu 1-2 days in advance, wrap the glass container with plastic wrap, and store it in the refrigerator.
