How To Make Tiramisu

Tiramisu is a famous Italian dessert that is made of coffee mixture, ladyfingers, and a layer of mascarpone cheese, sugar, and egg mixture. Tiramisu is an Italian word, which means “cheer me up.”


• 1 1/2 cups brewed espresso
• 2-3 tbsp coffee liqueur/marsala/brandy
• 5 large egg yolks
• 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp (125 grams) sugar
• 1 2/3 cups (400 ml) cold heavy cream
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 14 oz (425 grams) Mascarpone cheese (room temperature)
• 36-40 ladyfingers/Savoiardi biscuits
• Cacao for dusting


For the coffee mixture:
Mix brewed espresso and coffee liqueur/marsala/brandy.
Let it cool and set aside.

For the filling:
In a large heatproof bowl, add 5 egg yolks and sugar.
Put it over a pot with simmering water in it.
Make sure that the bowl does not touch the simmering water.
Whisk the ingredients continuously until the mixture thickens.
The egg yolk temperature should be at 68-70 C (this is optional).
Remove the bowl.
Let it cool.

Add mascarpone cheese and vanilla extract.
Whisk continuously until the mixture is smooth.

In a separate bowl, add cold heavy cream.
Whip to stiff peaks.
Fold 1/3 of this mixture and add to the mascarpone mixture.
Set aside the remaining cream.

For assembly:
Prepare a 9 x 13-inch dish.
Dip each ladyfinger/Savoiardi biscuit into the coffee mixture for 1-2 seconds.
Place and arrange in the bottom of the dish.
If needed, you can break the biscuit to fit in the dish.
Spread evenly half of the whipped cream over the biscuits.
Repeat with a second layer of soaked biscuits.
Spread the remaining whipped cream on top.
Cover with clear plastic.
Keep in the fridge for at least 6 hours.
Dust with cocoa powder on top.
Slice into servings.

Tips and ideas:

It’s totally fine to whisk raw egg yolks with sugar without putting it over the top of a pot of simmering water.

You can also use 4 egg whites as an alternative for cold heavy cream. Beat it to stiff peaks. Fold to the mascarpone mixture.

This is best served when cold.

This recipe takes about 7 hours to make. Serves 4 to 6.

• 2 cups of milk
• 2 tbsp green tea powder (matcha)
• 1 cup of heavy cream
• 6 egg yolks
• 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp sugar


Put green tea powder in a small bowl.
Pour 1/4 cup of milk into the bowl.
Whisk well to dissolve the green tea powder and until the mixture becomes a thick paste.
Pour rest of the milk into a saucepan and add the green tea paste.
Whisk until well combined.
Pour in half of the heavy cream and whisk well.
Cook over medium heat while stirring constantly.
Just before the mixture comes up to a boil, turn the heat off.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well blended.
Pour in the remaining heavy cream and whisk well.
Gradually pour in a ladle of the hot green tea mixture while whisking constantly.
Pour the egg and cream mixture gradually into the saucepan while whisking constantly.
Return the saucepan back to the stove.
Simmer over medium heat while stirring constantly using a wooden spoon.
When the mixture has thickened, turn the heat off.
Transfer the bowl to a large bowl with iced water to cool the mixture.
Once the green tea mixture has cooled completely, transfer to a container and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Pour the chilled green tea mixture into the tub of the ice cream maker and process in the ice cream maker for about 15 to 20 minutes.
At this point, the consistency of the mixture is soft-serve ice cream.
If you want the traditional hard ice cream, transfer the mixture to a container and freeze at least 3 hours before serving.

Ideas And Tips:

If you do not have an ice cream maker, you can still make hard ice cream in two ways. First is through the freeze and stir method. Pour the cooled green tea mixture in a shallow baking pan and freeze it for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove the pan from the freezer and stir the mixture using a whisk. You need to repeat this process 4 to 6 times to get hard ice cream. Second is through the plastic bag method. Put the cooled green tea mixture in a plastic bag and make sure it is completely sealed. Get a bigger plastic bag and fill it with ice and 4 tablespoons of ice cream salt or regular salt. Put the bag of the green tea mixture into the bag of ice. Seal and shake vigorously until the green tea mixture becomes thick. Transfer to a sealed container and freeze until it becomes hard ice cream.
