My Home-made Tiramisu' - Italian Traditional Recipe

in food •  2 years ago

Today I prepared the Italian Tiramisù.
This is an italian cake, a quite recent recipe, because it was created in the 1960s, probably in Tuscany, or Veneto or Friuli Venezia-Giulia (three regions in the north-center of Italy).
It's basically a variation of the "Zuppa Inglese" recipe, or "Trifle".

This is a collaboration post with @audegritt and @andrew0, all STEEM and SBD earned with this post will be equally shared with them!


  • 6 fresh eggs
  • sugar (150 gr.)
  • mascarpone (400gr.)
  • one small glass of liquor (I used Rum)
  • 8 cups of italian espresso coffee
  • Savoiardi buiscuits (400 gr.)
  • unsweetened cocoa powder (20 gr.)
  • sweetened cocoa powder (20 gr.)


  • separate the eggs' reds from the whites of the eggs and put them in two bowls
  • whip the eggs' reds and add 70gr. sugar, little by little. After having added all the sugar, start gradually adding the mascarpone to the mix while whipping, until you get a creamy mix
  • whip the eggs' whites in the other bowl until stiff, gradually adding 70 gr. sugar to it: be careful, first whip the eggs' whites for a while, then start adding sugar very gradually, otherwise the mix will not be stiff enough
  • gradually add the stiff eggs' whites to the reds, trying to keep the mix airy and soft, this will be your final cream!
  • prepare the coffee adding about the liquor and 10 gr. of sugar to it and putting it into a large soup plate
  • take a baking tray or another square container and start creating a first layer of cream
  • dunk the Savoiardi one by one into the soup plate with the coffee and then put them over the cream, until you don't cover it entirely
  • add another layer of cream, then put a very thin layer of cocoa powder over it
  • create a new layer with dunken Savoiardi, then cream and another layer with cocoa powder
  • cover the baking tray and keep it in fridge for 6 hours before eating it (if you are able to resist so much time before eating it) :)
