Tiramisu Recipe

Makes: 6 servings

A classic Italian dessert flavored with coffee and chocolate.

  • 2 eggs whites
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups mascarpone cheese
  • 7 ounces ladyfingers
  • 3/4 cup freshly brewed extra strong coffee, cooled
  • 7 ounces semisweet chocolate, grated
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting
  1. Stiffly whisk the egg whites in a grease-free bowl. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar in another bowl until pale and fluffy. Gently fold in the mascarpone, then the egg whites. Make a layer of ladyfingers on the base of a deep, rectangular serving dish and brush them evenly with coffee. Cover with a layer of the mascarpone cream and sprinkle with a little grated chocolate. Continue making layers until all the ingredients are used, ending with a layer of mascarpone cream. Dust with cocoa and chill in the refrigerator for about 3 hours.
