Tiramisu with ricotta and mascarpone, is a classic Italian dessert that is easily assembled. I also have a recipe to make the lady fingers from scratch if you like. Coffee, chocolate and rum, yum yum!

tiramisu recipe


  • 5 eggs
  • 8 oz. ricotta
  • 8 oz. mascarpone
  • 2 Tbsp. rum
  • 3 oz. grated chocolate
  • 24 lady fingers
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 cup expresso coffee- sweetened


Mix coffee with rum.

Mix ricotta, mascarpone, sugar, and eggs together. Spoon a layer of cheese mixture into an oblong dish. Dip ladyfingers in coffee/rum mixture and layer bottom of the pan. I use two layers of ladyfingers at a time if they are my homemade ones. Add a layer of cheese and sprinkle with cocoa. Continue with another layer, finishing with cocoa.

Refrigerate 2 hours before serving.
