  • 6 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 24 ladyfingers
  • 1 1/2 cups strong brewed espresso or coffee, cooled
  • 1/4 cup coffee liqueur (e.g., Kahlua)
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting


  1. In a heatproof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until well combined and creamy.
  2. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Whisk constantly for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens and becomes pale yellow.
  3. Remove the bowl from heat and whisk in the milk. Let the mixture cool completely.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  5. Gently fold the mascarpone cheese into the cooled egg yolk mixture until well combined.
  6. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture until smooth and creamy.
  7. In a shallow dish, combine the brewed espresso and coffee liqueur.
  8. Dip each ladyfinger into the espresso mixture for a few seconds, allowing them to soak up the liquid without becoming too soggy. Arrange them in a single layer in a square or rectangular dish.
  9. Spread half of the mascarpone cream mixture over the ladyfingers.
  10. Repeat with another layer of soaked ladyfingers and top with the remaining mascarpone cream mixture.
  11. Dust the top generously with unsweetened cocoa powder.
  12. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to allow the flavors to meld together.
  13. Slice and serve the Tiramisu chilled. Buonissimo!

Tiramisu is a dessert that deserves a place of honor at any special occasion or intimate gathering.

The harmonious blend of coffee, mascarpone, and cocoa creates a symphony of flavors that will leave your guests craving for more. So, embrace the sweet indulgence, savor the delicate layers, and create memories that will linger long after the last bite. Buon appetito!
