Why I Love This Recipe

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

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
