How To Make Heavenly Tiramisu
Servings: 8-12 | Prep Time: 25 mins | Ready In: 8 hrs
How to make tiramisu that's to die for! A heavenly Italian dessert with alternating layers of rich mascarpone and ladyfingers dipped in espresso, laced with rum. Top it off with cocoa powder and what more could you want? This is a luscious tiramisu made with generous mascarpone, bold espresso, and noticeable dark rum flavors, not a light perfectly stiff tiramisu full of whipped air and barely there flavors.
For quality tiramisu, use quality ingredients— get authentic mascarpone and ladyfingers, marked "Made in Italy." You can find both at Whole Foods. Our tests using various mascarpone cheeses made outside of Italy just didn't cut it, including ones made in perfectly nice parts of the USA. For the ladyfingers, we tried Trader Joe's and Whole Foods brands, but again, they didn't measure up to the Italian brand made in Italy. See photo below. Also, make a good quality espresso or simply buy it from a local coffee shop. The result is worth the effort.
Our rich, moist recipe for tiramisu is sinful but oh-so-good. So tempting, you'll hear yourself saying... Must. Have. More.
