It is perhaps the most famous Italian dessert: Tiramisu. Tirami sù is Italian for “Pull me up” or “lift me up”. This name is derived from the energy-rich ingredients that this Italian delicacy contains: eggs, coffee, sugar and mascarpone. Where the dish comes from exactly is unclear to this day. For decades there has been a debate between the Italian regions of Friuli and Veneto about the origin of this delicious dessert.

Preparation time: 30 min

Cooling time: 4 hours (not necessary, but then the tiramisu will be best)


Preparation method


  • Brew 2 strong cups of coffee and let it cool down

  • Bring the mascarpone to room temperature

Step 1: Prepare the mascarpone mixture

  • Separate the egg yolks from the egg white (Note! Do not throw away the egg white, you will need this later)

  • Mix the sugar with the egg yolk until smooth

  • Add the mascarpone and 2 tablespoons of whipped cream and mix briefly

  • Beat the egg whites in another bowl until stiff (see tip)

  • Immediately fold the beaten egg white into the mascarpone mixture

  • Add 2 tablespoons of rum

Tip: if even a little bit of fat gets into the protein mixture, it will not become stiff. To prevent this, you can rub your baking utensils with lemon juice and pat dry with a paper towel. The ultimate test: turn the bowl upside down. If the egg white does not move, you have succeeded!

Step 2: Prepare the tiramisu in the baking dish

  • Grate the dark chocolate

  • Dip the lady fingers briefly in the cooled coffee

  • Cover the bottom of the baking dish with the lady fingers

  • Add a layer of the mascarpone mixture

  • Cover with the chocolate grater

  • Repeat this 1 or 2 times (the amount of layers depends on the size of your baking dish) and make sure to finish with a layer of chocolate grater.

  • To stiffen the tiramisu and make it extra tasty, keep the tiramisu in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

Buon appetito! ('Enjoy your meal')
