The Best Tiramisu Recipe - Really!

Recipe by Wendelina
READY IN: 30mins




  • To start I chill the bowl I will be whipping the cream in***
  • Combine egg yolks and sugar in the top of a double boiler. I do this over boiling water.
  • Reduce heat to low.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes and don't go anywhere! Stir it constantly.
  • Remove the mixture from heat and whip the yolks until its thick.
  • Add the mascarpone to the whipped yolks.
  • Beat until combined.
  • Pull your chilled bowl out of fridge and whip the cream until the stiff peaks are formed.
  • Gently fold into yolk mixture and set aside.
  • Split the lady fingers in half. (Here's my Ladyfingers Recipe).
  • Line the bottom and sides of your serving bowl with the ladyfingers.
  • Brush the lady fingers with the Kahlua or your substitution.
  • Spoon half of the cream filling over the lady fingers.
  • Now you are going to layer - using ladyfingers, brushed Kahlua and filling.
  • Keep going till you run out of lady fingers.
  • The top layer of filling is finished off with cocoa or chocolate curls.(Or both!)
  • BIG SUCCESS HINT: "Ya gotta refrigerate several hours or overnight to get the flavors to mingle! ".
