Yields20 ServingsPrep Time15 minsTotal Time15 mins

I have been making this Tiramisu' for years, a lighter and creamy version of an Italian classic dessert. My recipe is easy, simple and done in minutes. Be aware it is addictive - ask the family members I caught stealing from a dish prepared for guests!

Step 4 cooked recipe tiramisu Italian italy dessert coffee mascarpone

 1 Package of Pavesini BiscuitsSavoiardi if you can't find them
 1 cup Coffee (Espresso)
 3 eggs
 3 tbsp Sugar
 500 g Mascarpone cheese
 1 pinch salt
 3 tbsp Cocoa powder

Make 1 cup of coffee, espresso would be the best choice and pour it in a bowl, big enough to dip the biscuits lengthwise.


Dip the biscuits in the coffee quickly with the long side and with the other and place them at the bottom and on the edges of your chosen form.


Separate the eggs, place 2 whites in one bowl and 3 yolks in another with 3 tbsp of sugar.
Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt until firm.
Whisk also the yolks until they change colour and are creamy.


Add the Mascarpone to the yolks and sugar cream, one or two spoons at once and amalgamate well before adding more.
Then add the firm egg whites, mixing carefully with a spatula as to not lose the air.


Pour half of the cream on the biscuits and spread it out evenly.


Make another layer of coffee dipped biscuits. My son did an amazing job here!
Finish with the leftover mascarpone cream.
Cover with plastic film and store in the fridge.


Before serving drizzle cocoa powder on the surface. Use a sieve to make it nice and fine.


Dig in and enjoy!
