Tiramisù recipe, the best Italian dessert! (Addictive)

My Dad makes the best Tiramisù in the world. Be ready because it’s pretty addicted!

Tiramisu ( or how we say in Italy tiramisù) which literally means “pull me up”, is one of the most popular Italian cakes.
It is made of biscuits (usually savoiardi) dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone, and flavored with cocoa.


500 gr mascarpone
6 eggs
6 tbs sugar
250 gr savoiardi (you can also use other kind of biscotti, light, finger-sized sponge cakes, commonly known as ladyfingers in the United States)
3 or 4 espresso coffee o coffee made with moka
unsweetened cocoa

Use two large bowl. In the first mix together yolks and sugar,and use the second to beat the egg whites until stiff. Then add mascarpone and egg whites to the first bowl, mixing slowly until creamy. (At this point you can also add some liquor if you like).

Put the unsweetened coffee in a soup bowl and dip the savoiardi.

Line them in a glass container and cover them with the cream. Repeat until the container is full. Sprinkle everything with unsweetened cocoa and put in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.

Enjoy! Buon appetito!
