This no-bake Italian dessest is the best tiramisu recipe which teaches you how to make tiramisu dessert using mascarpone cheese and lady finger biscuits


Coffee Mixture

  • 1 ½ tablespoon strong instant coffee 7.5 grams
  • 2 tablespoon castor sugar 30 grams
  • 1 ½ cup hot water 350 ml
  • 1 tablespoon golden rum 15 ml

Tiramisu batter

  • 3 egg yolks
  • ¼ cup castor sugar 60 grams
  • 1 cup mascarpone cream cheese 200 grams
  • 2 tablespoon golden rum 30 ml
  • 1 cup sweetened heavy cream 200 ml
  • 18-20 lady finger biscuits
  • 2 tsps cocoa powder, for garnishing (optional)


For the coffee mixture:

  • In a bowl, combine the coffee powder, castor sugar, rum and hot water together. Mix well until the sugar melts and set this aside

For the tiramisu batter:

  • Take a bowl, add the egg yolks and castor sugar to it. Place this bowl on a double boiler on medium heat and keep stirring constantly until the sugar in it has dissolved. The mixture should turn creamy and fluffy in texture
  • Take it off the double boiler and whisk in the mascarpone cheese, making it a smooth batter. Add in the rum and continue whisking
  • In another bowl, whisk the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Do not overbeat
  • Combine the egg yolk batter along with the whipped heavy cream. Mix until well combined and smooth

Assembling the tiramisu

  • Take any dish of your choice. I used a rectangular glass dish (32cms *18cms)
  • Dip the lady finger biscuits in the coffee mixture (make sure you do this step quick) do not soak it too long as it will loose its shape. Place a layer of the finger biscuits in the glass dish and pour half of the tiramisu batter over it. Smoothen the top using a spatula
  • Repeat the step by placing one more layer of soaked lady finger biscuits and top it up with the remaining tiramisu batter. Smoothen the top and cover the dish with cling wrap. Refrigerate the tiramisu for 8 to 12 hours
  • Before serving, dust the tiramisu with cocoa powder on the top. Cut slices and serve chilled
