Tiramisu in Italian means "pick me up" or "lift me up", is a classic and quick to make Italian dessert. It is made with  lady's finger biscuits known as the Savoiardi dipped in a rich coffee decoction, layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone cheese, and flavored with Marsala wine and cocoa. I have adapted this recipe to avoid using the raw egg yolks and made it without them.

If you don't get the Marsala wine you can mix rum or brandy into the coffee decoction and it will taste just as delicious. You could avoid the alcohol altogether as well.

Serve this Tiramisu at your next dinner party dessert. Or serve it after a simple home meal of Baked Penne Pasta With Roasted Peppers In Marinara Sauce Recipe, Garlic bread

  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Coffee Decoction , strong, cooled

How to make Tiramisu Recipe - A Classic and Quick Italian Dessert

  1. To begin making the Tiramisu Recipe, in a large bowl of the stand mixer, whisk the mascarpone cheese along with the sugar and 1 tablespoon of coffee decoction until fluffy and soft peaks form. Take care not to over beat as the cheese can turn into buttery texture when over beaten.

  2. Arrange the lady's finger biscuits at the bottom of a 9 inch baking dish. Drizzle the coffee decoction over the biscuits, so they get soaked with it. Don't pour too much, that they become too soggy. 

  3. Spread half of the whisked mascarpone cheese over the soaked ladyfingers. Arrange another layer of ladyfingers and drizzle the coffee decoction over the fingers. This time, it should be of a less amount than you did for the bottom layer. Finally, spread the remaining mascarpone cheese mixture on the top.

  4. Cover the baking dish with tiramisu and refrigerate for at least 8 hours before you can serve it.

  5. When you are ready to serve the Italian Tiramisu, sift the cocoa powder evenly over on the top and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.

  6. Serve this Tiramisu at your next dinner party dessert. Or serve it after a simple home meal of Baked Penne Pasta With Roasted Peppers In Marinara Sauce RecipeGarlic bread.
