My mom's tiramisu

For years and years and years my sister and I kept hearing from our family that our mom's tiramisu was the best they'd ever tried. And in all those years and years, guess who hadn't tried it once? Yes, that was us. So after some begging and begging she finally made us one. And I, as a good blogger, obviously photographed the whole process so I could share the recipe with you.


  • 1 cup of coffee
  • 1 shot of amaretto
  • 6 tablespoons of sugar
  • 250g of mascarpone
  • 3 eggs: we will be using the egg whites and the yolks separately
  • 3 layers of spongecake
  • Chocolate

First, we mixed the cup of coffee, with a shot glass of amaretto and 3 tablespoons of coffee. And we set this aside.

We then mixed the mascarpone, with the 3 egg yolks and the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar. Again, we left this aside.

And finally we my dad beat the egg whites to form peaks.

Now, you can mix the mascarpone with the egg whites, but you have to do this very slowly or else the eggs will go down.

We now have everything ready to start building our tiramisu. Start by pouring some coffee in top of a layer of spongecake.

Add a layer of the mascarpone mix.

And then comes the chocolate!

But you will need to grate it.

Doesn't our first layer looks amazing?

And repeat with all the remaining layers...

  5. Tiramisu from scratch?? I'm jealous! It looks so yummy, and it was so smart of you to photograph the process. When I try, it's difficult to juggle too many things at once!
