Tiramisu – A delightful treat for any occasion

tiramisu 6

Have u ever met anyone who doesn’t like Tiramisu? Well, I haven’t.

Long back, I had shared a recipe of Strawberry Tiramisu. There was no coffee in it, just filled with lots of juicy strawberries. Along with the recipe, I also shared how and where I had my first bite of Tiramisu. Ever since the first bite, I fell in love with this dessert and till date, I can never get enough of it.

It’s now my favorite dessert.

Tiramisu - A delightful treat for any occasion 1

Before I took the first attempt at making this classic delight, I used to think that it’s one of those treats that are too complicated to create at home.

I was wrong! It’s one of the easiest.. all you need is a little time in hand and of-course, the ingredients.

Tiramisu - A delightful treat for any occasion 2

 It’s one of my go to dessert for parties.. friends.. or any special occasion.

I had shared this recipe with some of my friends and it became there go to dessert. Every single time they made it, I would receive a call or email about how much they loved it and then, there would be a suggestion – ‘share it in your blog’!

Aren’t they sweet! I am so blessed to have such lovely friends in my life 🙂 And the funny part is that there is no special recipe for this tiramisu, its actually pretty basic!

Tiramisu - A delightful treat for any occasion 3

I never feel lazy to make Tiramisu and sometimes, I make it just for two of us to enjoy over a lazy weekend. All of those times, we would get so excited to eat it that doing some photo shoot sounded way too tiring.

After several pushes, I finally decided to make Tiramisu for the blog, which meant I needed double the patience. At first, wait for the Tiramisu to rest over night and then, some extra patience to finish the photo shoot before we could dig in.

Tiramisu - A delightful treat for any occasion 4

So, here you go my friends.. a simple, classic and basic Tiramisu for you to try 🙂

tiramisu 7 1

Tiramisu – A delightful treat for any occasion


  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 tbs mascarpone cheese
  • 24 lady fingers
  • 2 tbs coco powder plus extra for dusting
  • 1 cup strong espresso, cooled down to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup bitter-sweet chocolate shavings, for garnish


  1. Beat the egg yolks and sugar in an electric mixer or whisker until they are thick and pale. This should take about 5 minutes.
  2. Add mascarpone cheese and continue beating until smooth.
  3. Add 1 tbs of coco powder and mix until its thoroughly combined.
  4. Dip each ladyfinger into espresso for about a second and place on the bottom of the serving bowl (I placed 3 in each).
  5. Next, pour the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers.
  6. Now, arrange another layer of soaked ladyfingers and top with remaining mascarpone mixture.
  7. Cover the bowls with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (I keep it overnight).
  8. While serving, sprinkle some more coco powder with chocolate shavings.

    Your tiramisù is so gorgeous! I want to make one tonight (anyway, I don’t have mascarpone). I also make tiramisù very often and it is one of my favourite desserts. It’s funny, but all those who have never prepared it think it’s very difficult 😉
    I am so glad I don’t see any cream in your recipe (I hate tiramisù with whipped cream: it loses its sophistication and lightness!).

  • Cristina

    Also! If you can you should try making the recipe with a different cookie…called pavesini. It’s what I used when I was taught in Florence. I can actually find the brand in a specialty shop near me (I live in NY). It’s significantly lighter than the dense lady fingers which I find really lets the other ingredients shine.

    hey this looks beautiful, i tried a not so good Tiramisu at a restaurant in Hyderabad and have ever since been on the lookout for good Tiramisu. I have two questions. 1. Do we eat raw egg yolks, no problem? 2. What are lady fingers, i feel stupid as everyone else seems to know 🙁

    Tiramisu is one of those things I think I like, and have always wanted to try making, but I just never do. But your photos and description of how easy this is to make have inspired me to actually try it, not keep putting it off and making excuses. It looks absolutely delicious! Question, do you buy your lady fingers or do you make them yourself?

    This looks so light and full of flavor. I have eaten this so many times but have never made it at home. you should get brownie points for making this at home.
