Make an classic Italy Tiramisu on Dessert.S 意式提拉米苏

A Classic Italian Dessert- 【Tiramisu】, means "Pull Me Up" in English

This week, I am going  to make a classic Italian Dessert - Tiramisufor you.

Tiramisu in English, literally means "Pull Me Up". It is just exactly the phrase that I have been thinking over again and again in these days. I hope someone could pull me up into the sky and let me feel the free of flying , someone could pull me up from the stress, let me feel the ease of life, someone could pull me up and bring me back to the childhood for enjoying the  pure pleasure. Unfortunately, some of my 'wishes' couldn't  immediately come true. But there is one thing that could pull myself up, which is to immersing  myself into the pure enjoyment of making a rich and indulgent Tiramisu for myself and my friends.

To make a classic  and delicious Tiramisu is not that difficult as you might think before, conversely,  it is really simple and only takes you 15 min to prepare and finish all the process. I bet all of you could finally make a piece of indulgent cake by yourself. Have you decide to have a try on it and Why not?

There are three core ingredients in making this classic dessert- Lady/Sponge Fingers (They are called savoiardi in Italian), Mascarphone Cheese and a flavour with liquor and Strong Espresso.

Now, follow me and to make a unique  Tiramisu for yourself and hopefully it will pull you up !~


1. Whip the Heavy Cream until evenly Blended: Put the Heavy Cream in a large bowl, whisk the cream until evenly blended.

2. Add Egg Yolk and Sugar into the Heavy Cream mixture. Whisk until they are thoroughly combined as Heavy Cream Mixture.

3. Quick Stir the 250g Mascarpone cheese in another bowl to loosen it up.

4. Add the Heavy Cream Mixture and Mascarpone Cheese together. Whisk until two mixtures completely combined and looks thick and creamy.   (Mascarpone Mixture)

5. Make a cup of strong Espresso (50ml) and let it cool.

6. Dip some  Lady Fingers into the Espresso and use them to line the base of four serving glasses (breaking them into shorter lengths to fit the glasses). Put the coffee into a shallow dish and dip in a few sponge fingers at a time, dipping for few seconds  until they are nicely soaked, but not soggy.

7. Spoon or pipe over a layer of the Mascarpone Mixture on the soaked lady fingers.

8. Repeat layering the dipped Lady Fingers and Mascarpone Mixture until you reach the top of the glasses and finishing with the creamy layer.

Decorate it: You can decorate it to be your own style,  I pour yoghurt at the bottom and add some strawberries and blueberries in the middle layer to decorate my Tiramisu, as it could bring fresh into the dessert.

9. Cover and Leave it in your Refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight and Dust with sifted Coca Powder on the top to Serve. This can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days.



  1. 将120ML淡奶油打发均匀
  2. 将蛋黄和糖加入淡奶油中,打发,使其打发成奶糊状即可。
  3. 把250g马斯卡彭芝士放入另一碗中,用搅拌器打至松发。
  4. 把3中的马斯卡彭芝士和2中的淡奶油奶糊,均匀搅拌在一起,制成提拉米苏的芝士馅。(Mascarpone Mixture)
  5. 冲一杯50ml的意式浓缩咖啡,放凉 (Sarah本来想用illy的Espresso,不过忘了去Sainsbury’s买了,就用了Starbucks的Colombia Medium的instant coffee代替)
  6. 取几根手指饼干,在咖啡中快速浸泡下,然后铺入玻璃杯(容器)底部
  7. 在底部放有手指饼干的玻璃杯(容器)中,倒入一部分4中的芝士馅。
  8. 再在芝士馅上铺上一层被咖啡浸泡过的手指饼干,再倒上芝士馅,至装满,抹平。
  9. 放入冰箱冷藏2-4个小时以上。吃之前撒上些可可粉即可。

You could find more recipes of “Tiramisu” from the Image links I given below, or click“Recipes Resources” links at the right column of the“Dessert.S” .

Have a try on making your own simple Classic Italian Tiramisu. To make a simple and lighter version, I didn't  add any alcohol in my recipe as I want to have a taste of very original rich and indulgent  flavour of itself. Normally, some Tiramisu Recipes would add  Masarla Wine (or Brandy or Rum or Tia Maria) to give its richer flavour.


(如果没有‘Mascarphone Cheese'的童鞋,没有关系,可以用’Cream Cheese‘代替,具体方法可以参看最下面来自Chinese Blogger-Junzhi的做法。)

很多制作Tiramisu的Recipes中会加上另一个很重要的材料-朗姆酒,Sarah在这里没有加,大家可以去买Masarla Wine,Rum,Brandy加到配方中,与咖啡混合,制作出口感更丰富浓郁的提拉米苏。

你可以在边栏的“Recipes Resources”或“Blog Roll”找到更多的制作方法。
