  • 12 oz (350 gr) mascarpone cheese
  • 3/4 cup (90 gr) confections’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) sweet Marsala wine (see notes)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/4 cup (300 ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons (30 gr) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) freshly brew good espresso or very strong coffee
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) rum or cognac (see notes)
  • 25 - 30 eggless ladyfingers
  • 1/3 cup (33 gr) unsweetened cocoa powder


Make the Tiramisu Cream:

  • Place mascarpone cheese in a bowl and soften it with a spoon or spatula. Add confectioners’ sugar, wine, and salt and mix until everything is well incorporated and smooth. Set aside.
  • With a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed until medium peaks form, about 3-4 minutes. Add granulated sugar and vanilla extract and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold gently the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture. Set aside

Assemble the Tiramisu:

  • You need a large 9×13-inch baking pan/dish.
  • Whisk the coffee and rum together in a shallow bowl. Set aside.
  • Working one at a time, dip ladyfingers into the coffee mixture just long enough to get them wet, do not soak it! Arrange the dipped ladyfingers in the baking pan to make one solid layer. If needed, cut some ladyfingers to fill in any empty spaces.
  • Spoon half the mascarpone cream filling over the ladyfingers. If desired, dust some cocoa powder over the cream, this is optional, but I like the extra cocoa in my tiramisu.
  • Dip remaining ladyfingers into the remaining coffee mixture and arrange one-by-one on top of the mascarpone layer.
  • Spread the remaining mascarpone mixture evenly on top. Refrigerate for 2 hours, then dust with cocoa, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Overnight is best.
  • Using a sharp knife, slice chilled tiramisu into servings. Wipe knife clean between cuts. A small metal serving spatula is very helpful for removing the slices.


STORE: Tiramisu can be store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
FREEZE: To freeze tiramisu, place the first layer of plastic wrap directly against the cream surface (without cocoa) to prevent a skin from forming. Then, add an additional layer of plastic wrap and cover with foil. Freeze for up to 3 months. To defrost, let it sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes. After it has defrosted, add the layer of cocoa and serve.
MAKE AHEAD: You can make the tiramisu up to 2 days before you need it, just make sure it well covered so it doesn't pick up any stray odors and “flavors” from other foods in the refrigerator pick up any odor in the refrigerator.
SWEET MARSALA WINE can be substituted for Grand Marnier, Vinsanto, or Cherry.
NON-ALCOHOLIC VERSION: Just substitute alcohol for coffee when making the tiramisu cream and skip the alcohol in the coffee.
  • Take out the Mascarpone cheese from the refrigerator 15 minutes before you start making this recipe. That will help it mix together with the other ingredients more smoothly.
  • Fold the whipped cream gently into the mascarpone mixture, you want to keep as much of the air in the whipped cream intact, so the tiramisu cream is light and fluffy.
  • Soak the ladyfingers in the coffee mixture briefly. Don’t let them get soggy.
  • I highly recommend making the ladyfingers the day before and let them dried out at room temperature overnight, so they have the perfect texture to dip into the coffee.
