The tiramisu recipe I concocted for a special, out of the blue bakery order. This does include a raw egg, so be warned.


  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tbsp custard powder
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup kahlua
  • 1/4 cup 4% milk
  • 16 oz. mascarpone cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 9 oz packaged ladyfingers (3 standard packages)
  • 1 cup espresso


  • Line the bottom of a 10" springform pan with parchment paper.
  • Whisk together egg yolk, custard powder, 1/3 cup powdered sugar, kahlua and milk in a double boiler over simmering water until thick. Put it in the fridge to cool.
  • Cream together mascarpone and remaining sugar with electric beaters until smooth.
  • Add heavy cream, and beat until it looks almost overbeaten (small curdles).
  • Add cold custard to cheese mixture, and fold in.
  • Place in fridge while the ladyfingers are prepared.
  • Trim the base of enough ladyfingers to allow them to stand upright around the edge of the 10" pan. Do not soak these in espresso.
  • Soak whole ladyfingers in the espresso for a few seconds, until they are about half wet and half dry. Fill the base of the pan.
  • Add less than 1/2 of the cheese mixture. It should seal against every single upright ladyfinger and cover the bottom evenly.
  • Soak remaining ladyfingers in coffee until about half-wet and make an even layer on top of the cheese mixture.
  • Add the remaining cheese mixture on top. Chill minimum 48 hours.
