Classic Tiramisu

with Espresso and Yogurt

Classic Tiramisu

When I think of Italy, the first thing that comes to my mind is good food and great wine. And what should not be missing at the end of a good meal? For me definitely coffee and something sweet. Not surprising that tiramisu – combining both – is one of my favorite desserts.
One of my friends has Italian roots and her mom was so kind to share her tiramisu recipe with me. I changed a few things over time and this is my favorite version. To make it a lighter, I usually mix the cream with plain yogurt. In summer, I also like to add some fresh strawberries.

You need

  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Strong Coffee or Espresso
  • 1 Pck. Ladyfingers
  • Vanilla Extract
  • 2 TBSP Sugar
  • 50 g Plain Yogurt
  • 250 g Mascarpone
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Strawberries optional

Here’s how to do it

  • First, make a cup of strong coffee or espresso and let it cool completely.
  • Separate the eggs and mix the yolk with the sugar. Then, add the mascarpone, yogurt and some vanilla extract.
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff and mix into the mascarpone cream.
  • Optionally, cut the strawberries into small pieces and add to the mixture.
  • Cut the lady fingers lengthwise.
  • Lay out a layer of ladyfingers on the bottom of a casserole form and carefully cover with the coffee. This is best done either with a brush or a teaspoon – just make sure that the ladyfingers are not completely soaked.
  • Next, spread a layer of mascarpone cream over the ladyfingers base and repeat both steps until you used up ladyfingers and cream.
  • Finally, sprinkle with cocoa powder and place in the refrigerator for about 6-8 hours before serving.
