I love tiramisu! It is also one of my family’s favorite desserts. There is nothing better than homemade tiramisu, super-simple recipe for the Italian classic.

Ingredients:
Cake Layers:
8 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla extract
 
Syrup:
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 cups strong brewed coffee
2 Tbsp. Heavy Cream
3 Tbsp. coffee liqueur
 
Filling:
2 (8 ounce) container mascarpone cheese
2 cups powder sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
3 cups heavy cream
             
Topping:
2 cups grated semisweet chocolate
2-3 Tbsp. cocoa powder for dusting
 
Direction:
Cake layers:
Preheat oven to 350F (175 degrees C). Grease 3 (9 inch) pans.
In a mixer whip eggs and 1 1/2 cups sugar until thick and pale in color.
In separate bowl combine flour and cornstarch; sift into the separate bowl.
Gently using rubber spatula fold in flour mixture. Divide batter between 3 pans.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool completely.
Filling:
Combine mascarpone, powder sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. With electric mixer whisk together until completely smooth, scraping the bottom of the bowl to remove any lumps. Slowly whisk in the heavy cream. Whip until soft peaks form.
Syrup:
Stir together sugar, heavy cream, coffee and coffee liqueur until sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
Assembling the cake:
Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spray with coffee mixture over cake until it’s well soaked, and then spread 1/6 of the filling mixture (about 1.5 cups), sprinkle with 3 table spoons of grated chocolate; top with another layer; spray with coffee mixture over cake until it’s soaked, then spread 1/6 of the filling mixture; sprinkle with 3 table spoons of grated chocolate and top with the last cake layer; spray with coffee mixture over cake until it’s soaked.

    Hi Inessa,
    Tiramisu is one of my favorites. I prefer desserts that are not too sweet. I make it with a sponge cake as well and its one of the fastest cakes I make.

    Nice! I will try this except i usually add cream cheese instead of mascarpone. Where do you get mascarpone cheese?

      Thanks Elen :), I get my mascarpone from Trader Joe’s but most of the fine Grocery Stores has it.
      Cream cheese will work too but mascarpone makes this cake more silky and special.
