Italian tiramisu is a classic dessert that embodies the rich and indulgent flavors of Italy.


This delight consists of layers of coffee-soaked ladyfingers and a delicious mascarpone cream, all dusted with cocoa powder.




  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups strong brewed coffee, cooled
  • 1/4 cup coffee liqueur (optional)
  • 24-30 ladyfinger cookies
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting


In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until the mixture becomes thick and pale.

Add the mascarpone cheese to the egg yolk mixture and gently fold until well combined. Set aside.

In a shallow dish, combine the cooled brewed coffee and coffee liqueur, if using.

Dip each ladyfinger into the coffee mixture for a few seconds, ensuring they are soaked but not overly saturated.

Arrange a layer of soaked ladyfingers in the bottom of a 9×9 inch dish.

Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers.

Repeat with another layer of soaked ladyfingers and the remaining mascarpone mixture.

Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to meld.

Before serving, dust the top of the tiramisu with a generous layer of unsweetened cocoa powder.
