Our top 3 of 27 Tiramisu recipes
This can be left in the fridge for several hours before serving, and even overnight, so it is a good dessert for making in advance. The longer you soak the biscuits for, the softer they will be, and the stronger the coffee flavour. Just leave for a minute if you prefer them crunchy.

- 2 Eggs
- 75 g Caster sugar (normal or golden)
- 250 g Mascarpone
- 2 tbsp Marsala wine or almond liqueur or sherry (optional)
- 150 - 200 ml Freshly made espresso (or small cup strong instant coffee)
- 100 g Amaretti biscuits
- 1 tbsp Cocoa powder for dusting (or use grated dark chocolate)
- Make the coffee and pour into a shallow dish along with the Marsala, or similar, if using. Add the amaretti biscuits and leave to soak for a couple of minutes.
- Separate the eggs. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar on a high speed until pale and creamy, and a ribbon trail is left when you pull the whisk away. Add the mascarpone and beat again until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites to firm peaks. Fold into the mascarpone mixture 1/3 at a time.
- Put half of the amaretti biscuits into a serving dish, or 4 individual dishes or ramekins. Cover with half of the creamy mixture. Put the rest of the amaretti on top, and cover with the rest of the creamy mixture. Dust with cocoa powder and leave in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. If using dark chocolate shavings instead, sprinkle over just before serving.
- 2 cups espresso (or really strong) coffee
- 4 egg yolks (large)
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup marsala wine
- 450g marscapone
- 1 cup double cream
- 285g savoiardi (lady fingers)
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1. Prepare a strong espresso coffee, about 2 cups. Let the coffee cool at room temperature.
- 2. Beat the egg yolks until they become light and fluffy. Then beat in the sugar and marsala.
- 3. Transfer the bowl to a pan of simmering water, and whisk until the mixture becomes thick. The zabaglione will thicken just before it boils.
- 4. Cream the mascarpone - this is easier if you have taken the marscapone out of the fridge and left at room temperature for a while.
- 5. Add the zabaglione to the mascarpone, beat to mix very well.
- 6. Whip the cream and then fold the cream into the zabaglione–marscapone mixture until smooth.
- 7. Now for the fun bit....Lightly soak the savoiardi in the coffee, one at a time. Place them in one layer in a container of approx (30 x 20 cm), approximately 4 cm deep). Spoon half of the zabaglione cream over the ladyfingers then repeat the step with a second layer of ladyfingers, and top with the rest of the cream.
- Right there is a difference of opinion here
- 8a. Sprinkle with the cocoa powder and refrigerate for about 3 – 4 hours.
- 8b. Sprinkle with cocoa prior to serving.
- I prefer 8a :-)
