Tiramisu is my favourite dessert and it's really easy to make. This is a base recipe, you can try different liqueurs or even fruit.


Serves: 12 

  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 500g mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) strong brewed coffee, room temperature
  • 30 sponge finger biscuits
  • 250g finely chopped dark chocolate

  1. In large mixing bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar with electric mixer until light yellow, 1 minute. Beat in mascarpone, brandy and vanilla until smooth. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Fold egg whites into mascarpone mixture.
  2. Quickly dip sponge fingers, one at a time, in cooled coffee and arrange them in a 20x30cm baking dish. Use 15 biscuits to cover the bottom of the dish. Spread half the mascarpone mixture over the biscuits and sprinkle the chocolate on top. Repeat the soaked biscuit and cheese layers.
  3. Cover tightly with cling wrap and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight before serving.
