Homemade Tiramisu

There is nothing better than homemade tiramisu - this recipe is amazing!

I love tiramisu! It is also one of my husband’s favorite desserts. I decided to make this for him as a test run for Valentine’s Day. There is nothing better than homemade tiramisu! I thought it would be harder to make that what it was. Of course if you made your own ladyfingers it would be. I was able to enjoy this 100% gluten free too! I used Schar Gluten Free Ladyfingers.

The most expensive ingredient was the mascarpone cheese, I purchased it for $5.89 for an 8 oz tub and then the lady fingers which were around $5.00. I had everything else so the price per serving was $1.82 each (large servings). I have seen this dessert as much as $10 per serving in nice Italian restaurants. You could even create this in the shape of a heart or decorate it with the cocoa in the shape of a heart. I may try that for Valentine’s Day. There is nothing better than homemade tiramisu - this recipe is amazing!

Cook Time:6 hours
Total Time:6 hours 30 minutes


  • 3 egg yolks large eggs
  • 3 egg whites large eggs
  • If you don't want to use raw eggs then you can substitute 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream instead
  • 4 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Rum or you can use 1/2 tsp - 1 tsp. rum extract
  • 5.3 oz package Ladyfingers
  • 1 1/4 10 oz cups brewed coffee or espresso
  • 2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder


  • Soak the ladyfingers well in coffee.
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff.
  • In a separate bowl beat 3 egg yolks with sugar, then add the mascarpone cheese and rum (or rum extract).
  • (If you are not using eggs when you beat the whipping cream with the sugar and add to the mascarpone cheese with rum or rum extract)
  • Carefully fold egg whites into the cream mixture. Do not overmix.
  • Arrange the soaked lady fingers in a shallow glass pan (I used a 9x9 pan).
  • Cover them with 1/2 of the cream mixture.
  • Add another layer of lady fingers.
  • Cover with a layer of cream mixture.
  • Sprinkle with cocoa powder and refrigerate for 6 hours.
  • I used a pampered chef shaker to lightly dust or a sifter or sieve would work.
  • I used Schar Gluten Free Lady Fingers to make this a gluten free recipe.
