The best Tiramisu ever!

Do you like Tiramisu? Oh, I love it!
But now there is Tiramisu and there is tiramisu
I do not want to brag, no, but believe me I make one of the best Tiramisu there is!
I got this recipe from my dear cousin years ago and I made it ever since lots of times.


Today I will share it with you!
Try it, it is real easy to make!

What do you need,


3 fresh egg yolks
4 soup spoons of sugar
1 tray of mascarpone (250 gram)
250 ml fresh whipped cream
1 little bag of vanilla sugar (8 gram)
2 cups of strong coffee
A considerably dash of coffee liqueur (Tia Maria)
2 packs of biscuits I don’t know the word in English but they are the same as you use for a ‘charlotte’ here we call them ‘Lange vingers' = long fingers (maybe ‘sponge fingers’ is the right name)

To make the mass,
Mix the 3 egg yolks with 3 spoons of sugar. Put the mixer in the highest level and mix until the egg yolk mass is airy and has a light yellow color.

Mix the Mascarpone a bit airy (doe er een scheutje advocaat bij, ad a little egg..)
Mix the fresh cream with 1 spoon of sugar and the vanilla sugar.


Now scoop all three (egg mass, mascarpone and whipped cream) together. Do not mix but scoop carefully!

Finish the Tiramisu,
Make 2 cups off very strong coffee and put it in a bowl and pour in the dash of liqueur.
Dip each biscuit quickly in the coffee and cover the bottom of the dish or baking tin until it is completely covered.


Now scoop half of the mass on top of the biscuit layer and repeat this ones more till you have four layers. (biscuits-mass-biscuits-mass)


At last you take a sieve and put in the cacao. Sieve until the whole top is covered with a layer of cacao.


The Tiramisu is finished! Please do not eat it right away becouse it will taste So much better after a night in the refrigerator!!
Before you serve make sure there’s a fresh layer of cacao on top!
You have to make this! It can’t go wrong! Goodluck!

While we enjoy my Tiramisu and a cup off coffee,

I look at this great giftEileen send me.Thanks Eileen!
When my sister and I receive a bloggift or swap we climb in the phone and make time for a coffee visit with a cookie and a sweet burning candle on the table. So when Eileen send me this great gift My sister came over and we sat down. Than a few things happened so quickly…..
The phone rang, I was on the phone and meanwhile pointing to my sister to open the gift,
‘oh, great fabrics’ I heard her say, ‘lucky you, Oh Heleen, Fire!’ The wrapping paper was laying in the candle…
I took the paper and threw it in the sink. Pfff yes lucky me. Then again ‘Heleen fire!
The paper was still burning! Big flame this time! so water splashing and towel covering till it was really put out.
I was still on the phone ……and yes lucky me, lucky kitchen, lucky fabrics!

Tiramisu is my favorite dessert. I always order it at one of our favorite restaurants. But I know I could never make it successfully.. all the proper ingredients would be too hard for me to find. We do have those "Lady Fingers". But I'm not sure where to find vanilla sugar. Your dessert looks so delicious!
I'm glad no one got hurt with the burning tissue paper! That is scary. You are so welcome to the fabric.. I am just happy to be able to share my stash with someone who I know will appreciate it.. and who is so kind to send me little gifts too.

'Sponge fingers' is correct, at least here in Australia.(I looked it up on google. hahaha!) I do love your roll of materials. I can just imagine unrolling it and going 'ooh' and 'aah'. Cherrie

YUM...and as Eileen said we call them Lady Fingers in the US. What a wonderful bunch of fabric from Eileen. She has such a terrific fabric collection.

LOVE the pink and red dishes in the background.

It is one of my favorite desserts, I love it. I haven't made it so it is something I order when I dine out, whenever possible.

Toevallig zeg, ik had het vanmiddag nog over die hele speciale Tiramisu die ik op een terrasje in Verona heb gegeten. Zo lekker! Ik geniet nu drie jaar later nog na bij de herinnering. Maar die van jou ziet er ook goed uit, ga ik zeker eens proberen.
Gelukkig is het met het vuur goed gegaan!

Heidi said...

I make tiramisu so much as it is our favorite too! Loved the story about the burning wrapping!

Hugs en groetjes ~

Hello, I am just reading the recipe now for the first time, sounds most wonderful. I have an Italian girlfriend and she makes hers very similar. Except perhaps she keeps express coffee and adds a bit in. Also, if she runs out of mascarpone cheese, she has used cream cheese in a pinch, not the same but also good. In Canada we have the Italian biscuits in almost all grocery stores, just look for lady fingers, the right ones would be light and airy. The vanilla sugar is a small packet (German brand in the international food section) one can substitute a bit of vanilla and sugar separately. Thanks for the recipe. Greetings from across the pond, Canada, Susanne xoxo means hugs and kisses.
