The Tiramisu


The tiramisu is an Italian dessert that means literally pick me up or lift me up, so if you need to sheer up take fifteen minutes  and try this recipe :)

I keep the weights of the ingredients in grams to avoid rounding them and giving you wrong measures,  I suggest you to use a scale that indicates the weight in grams.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 box Speculoos
  • 100g  sugar
  • 250g mascarpone
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla
  • One cup of coffee
  • cocoa powder


  • start by separating the egg whites from the egg yolks.
  •  In a mixing bowl, whip the egg whites until it becomes thick.
  • In a large bowl mix the egg yolks, the sugar and the vanilla, then start adding the mascarpone while mixing.
  •  Incorporate the egg whites gently to the previous mixture.(you should have a smooth cream).
  • Soak the speculoos pieces in the coffee and place them as a first layer in ramekins, add the cream and then another speculoos layer, finally cover until  the top with cream.
  • Keep in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Sprinkle the cocoa before serving.

note: you can use  ladyfingers instead the speculoos.

  1. This looks amazing! Makes me a little sad that I’ve never had tiramisu before – maybe I’ll have to try this one.
