Recipe for Tiramisu

Our very nice teachers at Lingua in Corso decided it would be good fun if we experienced some Italian things other than grammar! Yeah.

So the first thing we do is make tiramisu.  She had all of the ingredients ready for us and the recipe as well.

There were 4 of us making this.  Each person made a dish for 4-5 people.
Here is the recipe.
3 egg whites
250 gr. of mascarpone
3 egg yolks
4 tables spoons of sugar
"cacao amaro" in powder form
400 gr. of pavesini or savoiardi lady fingers
6 cups of Italian coffee

Mix the marscapone with the egg yolks, add in the sugar, mix and stir very well.
Whip the eggs whites until they form peaks.(We used big glass measuring cups which worked great!)  Fold into the egg yolk and sugar combination.
Dip the lady fingers in coffee..don't soak..shake off any extra liquid.

In an 8X8 pan, put down some of the marscopne cream, just a little.  Then put down a layer of the lady fingers, pressed next to each other. Alternate soaked lady fingers and the cream. End with the cream on the top. Shake the cocoa powder over it. Put in the fridge for 4 hours before serving.

Our teacher said 3 layers is the best. It was delicious and easy! Even I did one.

We had 2 batches, so we gave one batch to the Babucci family.  They ate it all and said it was delicious! Remarkable.  We got them to eat something.


  1. I will try that. I used to think it was so complicated but now see it is not. Thanks for that!

    1. Let me know when you try it. It was so easy. Just make sure to have the coffee ready and in a bowl before you start.
