Classic Tiramisu Recipe (Without Alcohol)

  • Author: Mortadella Head
  • Total Time: 320
  • Yield: 8 1x


Units Scale

32 ladyfinger biscuits

4 fresh eggs

2 cups of mascarpone cheese or hand-whipped cream.

1 cup sugar

1 cup espresso coffee (or barley coffee, if you want it to be caffeine-free for your kids)

unsweetened cocoa powder to taste (or, alternatively, chocolate shavings)


  1. Make an espresso coffee and set it aside to cool down.
  2. Use an electric mixer to beat the egg whites until they become firm, slowly adding half the amount of sugar. Check the peaks that form on the whisk attachment/beaters to know when to stop. For a creamy tiramisu cake, you want to see stiff, pointy peaks.
  3. Now, let’s move on to the egg yolk mixture. Whisk the raw egg yolks with an electric mixer, then add the mascarpone cheese and the rest of the sugar.
  4. With a large spoon, incorporate the whipped egg whites into the egg yolk and mascarpone mixture. Add one spoonful at a time, stirring from bottom to top.
  5. Soak the ladyfinger biscuits in the coffee you made before, then use them to form a layer on the bottom of a baking dish.
  6. Add half of the cream.
  7. Make another layer of biscuits, and add the rest of the cream.
  8. Top with unsweetened cocoa powder or chocolate shavings.
  9. Cover in plastic wrap and let everything cool in the fridge for about 5 hours.
  10. Enjoy!
