Amaretti Tiramisu

by Love Baking

    I really like Tiramisu. I love it made with Amaretti instead of sponge fingers! Thanks for the tip mum!


    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites to firm peaks. Fold into the mascarpone mixture 1/3 at a time.
    4. 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.


    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.

      The name Tiramisu is from Italian and means "pick me up" (Tirami su) but can be translated figuratively as "make me less sad/happier".


      1. 1. Prepare a strong espresso coffee, about 2 cups. Let the coffee cool at room temperature.

      2. 2. Beat the egg yolks until they become light and fluffy. Then beat in the sugar and marsala.

      3. 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. 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. 5. Add the zabaglione to the mascarpone, beat to mix very well.

      6. 6. Whip the cream and then fold the cream into the zabaglione–marscapone mixture until smooth.

      7. 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.

      8. *********************************************
      9. Right there is a difference of opinion here

      10. 8a. Sprinkle with the cocoa powder and refrigerate for about 3 – 4 hours.

      11. OR

      12. 8b. Sprinkle with cocoa prior to serving.

      13. I prefer 8a :-)

        Hmmm - low fat tirimisu....

        I dont think greek yogurt would work as its not going to have the consistency. Low fat cream cheese i think howeverwould be a more feasible alternative.Something like Quark would also work i think and its fat-free I Think.

        My post christmas plan is soup centered :)

        Me again! Also do you think low fat cream cheese instead of mascapone would work?? Got to be worth a try don't you think?!

        Hi Watchman - to save on calories do you think you could substitute the cream with greek yoghurt? Would really cut down on the fat content (trying to shed the winter/Christmas pounds!!!)

        Hmmm well given the amount of digestives that I have dunked in my coffee and lost they certainly seem to be able to absorb the liquid and go soggy so i'd say so long as there are enough then maybe - it would make a sweeter dessert, and not sure how the texture would be (grainly???) - but if you dont like the lady fingers why not give it a go....

        Do you think I can replace lady fingers by digestives biscuits?

        Delicious after dinner desert. My sister made it for me when she began learning to cook... I'd like to dedicate it to my sister.


        1. Mix the condensed milk, custard and mascarapone cheese and stir until completely mixed

        2. Pour into a glass casserole dish and make a layer

        3. Dip the biscuits in the warm coffee but without making biscuit too soggy. Place a layer of these in casserole to make 2nd layer.

        4. Create a 3rd layer on top of the biscuits with the dairy mixture

        5. Create 4th layer of coffee biscuits

        6. Add 5th later mixture.

        7. Spread crumbled chocolate flakes on top of 6th layer.

        8. Leave to cool in fridge for few hours. For best results, leave overnight.

        9. Eat and enjoy as a desert treat! Yum! :)

          A traditional Italian dessert Made without eggs so the only cooking required is the syrup Very Yummy


          1. For the syrup, combine water and sugar and coffee in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally to dissolve sugar.
          2. Remove from heat, cool and add Amaretto Make sure it is cooled or you will cook of alcohol Optionally if you don’t want to get your kids drunk add amaretto while cooking syrup.

          3. For the filling, whip cream with sugar vanilla and amaretto until soft peaks form slowly incorporate softened mascarpone until just combined.

          4. To assemble, place a layer of half the ladyfingers in the bottom of a shallow 2-quart Baking dish or gratin dish.

          5. pour in half the syrup make sure all the lady fingers are covered with syrup.
          6. Spread with half the whip cream filling evenly.
          7. Repeat with remaining Lady Fingers, syrup and filling, spreading the top smooth, using a spatula.
          8. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 to 24 hours before serving.
          9. Immediately before serving place cocoa in a fine strainer and shake a light coating on surface.
