Heading out tonight to a dinner party with some co-workers, we have been asked to bring dessert.  We have not seen Rodney and Jocelyn for a number of weeks so I wanted to make something special.  I am so excited to bring over a super simple, easy, but truly delicious tiramisu!


  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 14 oz mascarpone cheese
  • 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 6 egg yolks
  • lady fingers
  • espresso
  • cocoa powder

Prepare the espresso on the stove top.  When ready, pour espresso into a medium size bowl and set aside. In a mixer, combine 1/4 cup of sugar, three yolks, two teaspoons of vanilla, 8 oz of mascarpone cheese and blend on high until smooth and a little whipped looking (takes approx. 4-5minute). This mixture makes the first layer of the cream. In an 8×8 dish (or really any shallow dish you like) dip the lady fingers in espresso and place along the bottom of the dish. Pour mixture over the ladyfingers and smooth evenly across. Repeat this for a second time.  When you have two layers of ladyfingers and cream, sprinkle with cocoa powder. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    1. Oh that is great! The key is whipping up the cream at a high velocity for at least 4-5 minutes and then immediately putting it in the refrigerator to set. Let me know how it goes 😉
