  • 4 large size eggs
  • 100 grams icing sugar
  • 500 grams mascarpone cheese (Galbani)
  • 1 tablespoon rum


  • 2 cups black coffee
  • 16 Savoiardi lady fingers


  • Prepare two cups of long black coffee and pour it into a deep dish. Set aside.


  • Separate four egg yolks from four egg whites in two different bowls.
  • Weigh 100 grams of icing sugar.
  • Beat the egg yolks with a hand held mixer and add 50 grams of icing sugar. Keep beating until the mixture gets foamy, pale yellow and the sugar has dissolved.
  • Wash the wire beaters thoroughly and beat the egg whites until stiff. Once they are stiff, add in 50 grams of icing sugar little by little while whisking.
  • Add the mascarpone cheese to the egg yolks. Whisk with the hand held mixer on low speed.
  • Add the meringue little by little into the yolk mixture. Mix both mixtures with a spatula with folding movements until combined. Then, pour in a tablespoon of rum and keep making folding movements from bottom to top until inegrated.

Lady Fingers Base

  • Dip the Savoiardi biscuits in the cold coffee for about 4/5 seconds and place them in a Pyrex dish.


  • Once the base is created, pour the cream and spread it evenly with the spatula.
  • Store it in the fridge covered with cling film and leave it overnight.
  • Sift cocoa powder on top of the tiramisu before serving. Et voilà.. you have a delicious tiramisu ready to be tasted!
