Tiramisu by a sweet baker on
Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup plus 1 Tbsp. sugar, 1 Tbsp. is reserved for the whipping cream
  • 2 cups mascarpone cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup coffee liqueur
  • 30-35 store-bought giant ladyfingers, you can use regular, you'll just need more
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • cocoa powder
  • milk chocolate


  1. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and the 1 cup of sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in mascarpone cheese until incorporated.
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold in beaten egg whites into mascarpone cheese mixture.
  3. In a small bowl combine coffee and coffee liqueur. Dip ladyfingers into coffee-liqueur mixture and lay in rows in the bottom of a 9X13-inch dish. Spread half of the mascarpone cream on top. Repeat with dipped lady fingers and spread the remaining mascarpone cream mixture on top.
  4. In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat heavy cream and tablespoon of sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream on top.
  5. Dust with cocoa powder and garnish with grated and/or shaved milk chocolate. Refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours, or preferably overnight to allow lady fingers to soak up coffee-liqueur mixture.
  6. Enjoy!
