How to make tiramisu cake roll, a delicious tiramisu made with sponge cake instead of savoiardi.

Combine 3 egg yolks, 1 Tbsp. espresso, sugar and cognac in large mixing bowl. Beat 2-3 minutes. Add Mascarpone and beat 3-5 minutes until smooth.

In another bowl, combine 3 egg whites and a pinch of sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into Mascarpone mixture. (*If using egg substitute, skip Step 2 and beat until fluffy.)

Dip one side of each ladyfinger into remaining espresso and layer on bottom of small serving dish. Spread Mascarpone mixture and sprinkle with cocoa. Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.

Instructions to make authentic tiramisu recipe

  • Start by mixing the sugar and egg yolks until the sugar is fully dissolved and they turn creamy and white. With a grinder, it will take hardly 2-3minutes to mix.
  • Add the mascarpone and whisk them at a medium-low speed for one minute or until it turns creamy and smooth.
  • Use mascarpone just taking it out from the fridge when you are about to mix the mixture of egg yolks and don’t overmix the mascarpone mixture.
  • The consistency of the mixture should be creamy and smooth, it should not be fluffy like whipped cream.
  • Soak about 10-12 ladyfingers in espresso and set them out in a baking dish and cover them up. It depends on the quantity of the dish and how many ladyfingers you need to dip.
  • Spread about 1/3 rd of the mascarpone mixture on top and cover them well with the mascarpone mixture, you can evenly spread the mixture with a spatula.
  • Repeat the process of soaking the ladyfingers, set them out in a baking dish, and spread mascarpone on top in two more layers.
  • Cover the baking dish with plastic and chill them in the fridge for 8-12hours. Before serving garnish the dessert with cocoa.

For the additional decoration before garnishing with cocoa you can layer your chilled authentic tiramisu recipe with whipped cream.

Important tips

  • Always use a large bowl to mix up the mascarpone because this will prevent the mascarpone to overmix.
  • It would be good to use fresh eggs.
  • Don’t soak the ladyfingers in coffee for a longer period as it will make the desert watery.
  • Wrap the baking dish tightly so that no air or smell can get into the tiramisu.
  • It is best to eat on the next day because when you keep it in the fridge overnight the taste will get better and it will be a more creamy consistency.

To add rum in the authentic Italian tiramisu recipe is not traditional but it’s common to add rum in the desert. You can add Amaretto liqueur or brandy.

You can store the leftover dessert in the refrigerator for 3days but make sure to wrap the baking dish tightly, so that no smell from the fridge can transfer inside the desert.


Sponge Cake

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Using an electric mixer on low speed, beat egg whites in a large bowl until just combined. Slowly add ½ cup sugar, gradually increasing the speed to medium, and beat until a stiff meringue forms. Transfer to a medium bowl chill until ready to use.

Step 3

Whip egg yolks, 2 Tbsp. water, and remaining ½ cup sugar in the still-messy bowl you used for the meringue on high speed until a fluffy, ribbony mixture forms. Using a rubber spatula, gently add reserved meringue and fold until just combined. (Be nice. Streaks are fine. The less you manipulate this, the fluffier it will be later.)

Step 4

Sift flour, cornstarch, and salt into a medium bowl. Gently fold into egg mixture until no dry spots remain. Carefully transfer batter to prepared pan with spatula.

Step 5

Bake cake until top is golden brown and still soft to the touch, 7–10 minutes. Let cake cool completely in pan. Run a knife around sides of pan to release cake. Place a cutting board on top of pan. Invert cake onto board remove pan and carefully peel away parchment. Using a serrated knife, cut cake in half crosswise.

Mascarpone Cream and Assembly

Step 6

Using an electric mixer on low speed, beat mascarpone, sugar, egg yolks, rum, heavy cream, and salt in a large bowl. Gradually increase the speed to medium as mixture becomes stable and beat until soft peaks form, but don’t over-whip.

Step 7

Spread a thin layer of mascarpone cream in a shallow serving dish. Place one half of sponge cake on top. Using a squirt bottle or spoon, soak cake with ¼ cup espresso. Spread with half of remaining mascarpone cream, place second cake half on top, and soak again with remaining ¼ cup espresso. Don’t be stingy with the espresso, okay? Top with remaining mascarpone cream.

Step 8

Spoon cocoa powder into a double-layer of cheesecloth, pull together ends tightly to form a ball, and gently shake cocoa onto tiramisu until fully blanketed (alternately, place cocoa powder in a fine-mesh sieve and dust over tiramisu).

Step 9

Do Ahead: Cover tiramisu and store in refrigerator for up to 8 hours.

How would you rate Del Posto's Tiramisu?

This was delicious just as written. Thank you!

I ran into a couple minor issues while making this, but overall, what a straightforward yet delicious recipe. I don't think I'll ever go back to using lady fingers when there's this easy recipe for sponge available. Suggestions: 1) Keep cream of tartar handy just in case your meringue isn't peaking. Mine might have had issues due to cold eggs, but adding this helped out immensely. 2) Rotate your sponge halfway through. I looked at mine at about 8 minutes and one side was browning while the other was barely cooked. Probably an issue with my oven's heat distribution, but most people have issues with their oven's heat distribution. Just don't stick it in and wait ten minutes. 3) My sponge filled a Nordic Ware 11.25 x 16.25 baking sheet, and it took about 11-12 minutes to cook, with a couple quick openings of the oven near the end.

I've made this twice for work potlucks and it's been an absolute hit! One of my co-workers came to work only because this tiramisu would be there. Two others who normally hate tiramisu also loved it. My boyfriend and I eat the mascarpone mixture in spoonfuls and index fingerfuls and find things to dip in it (leftover cake, miso pumpkin cookies, animal crackers, Pan di Stella cookies) because it's so, so good. The only change I make is in adding 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract to the mascarpone I feel like it speaks well with the rum in there.

I made this tonight and I'm letting it sit overnight in the fridge so all the flavors can combine, so I haven't actually tasted the finished product yet. But the cream component and the cake component each tasted phenomenal. I used a double shot of Illy espresso that I bought at a coffee shop which was probably about a quarter cup, and enough for only one layer. So I had to use instant Medaglia D'Oro for the second layer - so I'm a little nervous about how the final product will taste. But that's not the recipe's fault. I followed each step to a T and it was easy to prepare. Like the other reviewer mentioned, my marscapone layer was stiffer than Chef's was in the video, but it was still very easy to work with. The recipe for the cake layer filled a quarter sheet tray (9x12). Just don't make the same mistake I did, and have enough quality espresso on hand.

After much research, I chose this recipe to make for a NYE party, and it was very good. It has a nice balanced flavor, and the structure is between sliceable and scoopable. Overall, very good recipe! Some notes to clarify the recipe: -My sponge cake baked in 12 minutes (on a rimmed half sheet pan 13"x19"). I used an offset spatula to spread the cake batter evenly. -My mascarpone cream was a bit stiffer, not as drippy, as in the video. Iɽ also advise on room temp mascarpone. I had some lumps in the cream that I could out using a silicone spatula against the side of the bowl, but could have been prevented. Perhaps also whipping the mascarpone first to smooth out, before adding the other ingredients, would prevent mascarpone lumps. -It yields a pretty full 13x19 pyrex dish, using all the cake and cream.

Made this yesterday and it was a HUGE hit! Made it for a few tiramisu lovers and was worried about their critique. but it was seriously delicious!! Thank you Del Posto and Bon Appétit!! Btw I cut the recipe in half since it was a small dinner party and got 4 very generous servings out of it. To bake the sponge cake, I used a standard size baking sheet pan about 10”x15” and I didn’t spread it out all the way, because I didn’t want it too thin. I used about 3/4 of the tray and was able to get 2 layers out of it. If I used the full recipe it would probably fill up a 11”x17” sheet pan. The video helped fill in those small details :-) I will definitely make this again!!

What is Tiramisu?

Tiramisu (from the Italian language, spelled tiramisù, (tiramiˈsu), meaning “pick me up” or “cheer me up”) is a coffee-flavored Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers (savoiardi) dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar and mascarpone cheese, dusted with cocoa. The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of cakes and other desserts. Its origins are often from Italian regions .

It is one of those fancy desserts that you would never think to make at home , but trust me, making a good tiramisu at home isn’t really that difficult. It is always a big hit with my family! When I tried it for the first time, few years ago, it turned out so much better than I expected, and since then I’ve made it many times .

I prepare them ahead of time or the previous night, and leave it in the refrigerator to set. Made them mostly for my husband or sister’s birthday , so used a round cake pan to layer the tiramisu ( todays recipe is also a round cake shape). But usually it is made in a square / rectangular cake pans, so it is easy to cut the square shape , like how they serve it in the restaurants.

What are ladyfingers and where can I buy them ?

Ladyfingers, or in British English sponge fingers (sometimes known by their Italian name savoiardi [savoˈjardi] or their French one boudoirs [budwaʁ]), are low density, dry, egg-based, sweet sponge biscuits roughly shaped like a large finger. These are a main ingredient in many dessert recipes. They are typically soaked in a sugar syrup or liqueur, or in coffee or espresso for the dessert tiramisu.

Ladyfingers are sold in some grocery stores, and I have found them at few Trader Joes, World Market , and it’s easy to get ladyfingers online @Amazon. ( I used a brand name Marini Savoiardi Italian Ladyfingers from amazon , but you can use other brands as well).

What is Mascarpone and where can I buy them?

Mascarpone is an Italian soft cheese made from cream and resembling cream cheese, that is coagulated by the addition of acidic substances such as lemon juice, vinegar, or citric acid. It is recognized in Italy as a prodotto agroalimentare tradizionale.

They are sold in grocery stores in the refrigerated section , like Walmart , target , trader joes or online. I used a brand name Belgioioso Mascarpone , but you can use other brands too.

If adding rum or Cognac ?

Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of alcohol with the freshly brewed coffee. Then dip the ladyfingers in the coffee – alcohol mixture.

How to store the tiramisu?

Store any leftover in the refrigerator for up to two to three days in a air tight container. After that point, the ladyfingers continue to soften from the moment you start to assemble the dessert , they begin to break down, and the it will become mushy. I’ve not freezed it , so I’m not sure if it work.

Step by step pictures of how to make the Tiramisu

Measure the ingredients and keep it ready – ladyfingers cookies , mascarpone cheese, freshly brewed strong coffee , heavy whipping cream, white granulated sugar ( Divide sugar into 50 grams + 50 grams ), unsweetened cocoa powder, Egg Yolks ( separate egg yolks from white ).

Make the mascarpone and yolk cream

In a bowl , add egg yolks, and one portion of the sugar ( 50 grams) , using a electric mixer with whisk attachment , beat until it triples in volume ( approximately 5 minutes in medium – high speed ). Mixture will turn pale yellow color , and when you lift the whisk , slight ribbon like consistency should fall.

In a separate new bowl , add heavy cream and remaining portion of sugar ( 50 grams), and beat until medium peaks are formed ( peaks will be slightly less stiff and will not stand straight up )( approximately 5 minutes in medium – high speed).

Now add mascarpone cheese and continue to whip until spreadable consistency ( this will take less time , approximately 1 to 2 minutes) .

Slowly cut and fold mascarpone – cream mixture ( little by little) into egg yolks mixture until well combined.

Assemble the tiramisu layers

In a bowl , pour the brewed coffee , and set aside. This is optional – Dust the cake pan ( if using) with cocoa powder using a sifter or use any other flat bottomed container to set / layer the tiramisu. I used 8 inch round cake pan ( It made three layers, you could also use rectangular / square pans too) . Now take each ladyfingers cookie and “quickly” dip it in the coffee ( don’t leave the cookie too long in the coffee , it will break), and place them in the cake pan .

Repeat until you form the base cookie layer. Spread evenly the prepared mascarpone – egg mixture over the ladyfingers .

Arrange second layer of soaked ladyfingers, and top it with mascarpone mixture, repeat the same with the third layer ( spread the top layer evenly with the cream).

Sprinkle the top layer fully with cocoa powder. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 to 6 hours, or until set (or leave it over night ).

How to Make Classic Tiramisu

Tiramisu is kind of like the cool, older Italian cousin of an American icebox cake. They’re both essentially desserts of layered cookies with a light creamy filling.

Tiramisu, however, has a few signature components that set it apart. The filling starts with a zabaglione — which is a fancy name for egg yolks whisked with sugar and marsala wine (or rum, in our case) over a double-boiler until light, pale and foamy. This zabaglione establishes the flavor of the whole dish.

To stabilize the zabaglione and give it some body, I whip the mascarpone and the heavy cream together (a trick learned from Zoe Francois, who in turn picked it from Joanne Chang's Flour cookbook). I then fold the whipped cream into the cooled zabaglione.

Incorporating the mascarpone with the whipped cream, rather than stirring it into the zabaglione as is traditional, also seems to help prevent the mixture from separating and becoming grainy, which is a common problem many people run into with tiramisu.

The result is a sweet and silky – and slightly boozy! – cream filling. Once that part is done, the rest of the tiramisu is just an assembly job, followed by a long chill in the fridge.

My Christmas Tiramisu ended up being a hit, which was great since I overcooked our prime rib! The tiramisu set up beautifully, sliced easily (so much better than I expected), and definitely made our first Christmas feel extra special.

Finish with a layer of cream and cover it with a good sprinkling of unsweetened cocoa powder.

Useful tips and interesting facts

The region of Piedmont, with its truffles and hazelnuts, can boast the best tiramisu of all Italy. This simple recipe requires no cooking but its ingredients need to be of prime quality. The original recipe calls for savoiardi, a dry biscuit, similar to trifle sponges, which traditionally comes from Sardinia. The eggs need to be extremely fresh and so does the mascarpone, a fresh cheese whose flavour is delicate and mouth-filling. To whisk the egg whites into stiff peaks, they must contain no trace of egg yolk at all. As for the coffee, it is common knowledge that this is a serious topic in Italy. It is preferable to use coffee made with a mocha pot and, if you like its naturally bitter flavour, do not add any sugar. Place the tiramisu in the fridge for at least 3 hours before you need it, covered with cling film, and add the cocoa powder just one moment before serving.

There are numerous variations to the traditional tiramisu recipe, starting from the use of dry biscuits other than trifle sponges. You may also replace the coffee with alchermes, a liqueur that recalls another famous Italian dessert: zuppa inglese (somewhat similar to trifle). As an extra treat, add chocolate drops to the cream or berry fruits for a more summery version.
