An Italian sweet treat – tiramisu for me and you

The Italian dessert, tiramisu, is known all over the world for its delicious, creamy texture. Interestingly enough, the word “tiramisu” translates to “pick-me-up” in English – something that we all definitely need from time to time. As simple as this pudding is to make, it is also very easy to mess up. We have sourced a splendidly easy recipe for an enchanting tiramisu.


-          Six large eggs, separated

-          40 sponge finger biscuits

-          200 grams of castor sugar

-          250 grams of mascarpone cheese

-          250 millilitres of cream

-          170 millilitres of marsala wine

-          250 millilitres of espresso coffee

-          Some cocoa powder to decorate.


-          Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together with an electric whisk and then combine with the mascarpone cheese.

-           Whip the cream in a separate bowl with an electric whisk as well. Then take a metal spoon and fold the cream into the cheese, sugar and egg mixture.

-          In another bowl, whip the egg whites until they are stiff, and then fold them into the rest of the mixture.

-          Layer some of the mixture at the bottom of the pudding dish.

-          Mix the marsala wine and the espresso coffee together, and then dip the biscuits into the mixture before placing half of them on top of the mascarpone cheese layer you have at the bottom of the dish.

-          Cover the biscuits with the mascarpone mixture and then layer the rest of the dipped biscuits on top of that.

-          Finally, empty the rest of the mascarpone, egg and sugar mixture over the top of the final layer of biscuits.

-          Dust the top of the dessert with thin layer of cocoa powder.

Allow the tiramisu to chill in the fridge over night before serving. Enjoy!
