Who doesn’t love to order this dessert from a fancy restaurant? The Italian that came up with this combination of Marscapone cheese and coffee was a genius. Tiramisu is one of my favourite desserts, not just to eat but it’s also perfect to make a family style bowl that’s perfect for a large gathering. Also, it is very elegant. This is not authentic, but my version of Tiramisu, and I love to lighten it up with the addition of whipped cream.



6 egg yolks

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup Marscapone cheese

1 cup whipping cream

Savoiardi Lady fingers – 2 – 3 packages

1 cup expresso- add sugar

Coffee liquer (optional)

1/2 cup shaved dark chocolate



Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together

Place them over a double boiler till the sugar melts whisking aggressively so the eggs do not cook

Remove and set aside

Whisk the cream till stiff and set aside

Add the Marscapone to the mixing bowl and whip till smooth
