I am a HUGE tiramisu fan.

I love it.

I have sampled many a tiramisu only to be disappointed (especially when it’s some prepackaged mess that a restaurant is selling for dessert). There have been few tiramisu’s out there that are up to par, and if you are a tiramisu snob like me then you will not be disappointed by this recipe.

This is also one of the {very} few homemade recipes that is worthy of 5 stars. I guess that would make sense since an actual chef made it for me 🙂 We all know and love her simply as Yvonne.

Disclaimer: This was the picture given to me with the recipe. I have seen it on another website, so I can’t give origin credit.


6 egg yolks

3 T sugar

1-1/2 cups Espresso, cooled

2 T Kaluha

24 pack Ladyfingers

1/2 cup shaved chocolate, for garnish

1 lb Mascarpone cheese

1. In large bowl beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale. Add mascarp0ne cheese and beat until smooth. Add 1 T of espresso and mix.

2. In shallow dish add remaining espresso and Kaluha. Dip ladyfingers into the mixture. Do not let soak for long or the ladyfingers will get too soggy and fall apart.

3. Place the soaked ladyfingers in bottom of a 13×9-inch pan. Break the ladyfingers if necessary to fit the pan.

4. Spread 1/2 of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers. Repeat the layers (ladyfingers then cheese) one more time.

5. Cover top with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

6. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings right before serving.

Serves 6-8
