How to make Tiramisu

Incorporate the mascarpone cheese, stirring gently and with upward movements.

Step 4
Arrange the ladyfingers in an oval or round bowl, then slowly pour the coffee over them, until the ladyfingers are well soaked.

Step 5
Collect the cream in a piping bag and spread over several tufts. You can decide to do one or two layers.

Step 6
Transfer the tiramisu to the fridge and let sit for at least an hour. Once firm, sprinkle it with a little bitter cocoa powder.

Step 7
Your tiramisu is ready to be served.

How to Store Tiramisu

Your tiramisu can be kept for 3-4 days in the refrigerator, placed in an airtight container with an airtight seal or covered on the surface with a sheet of transparent film. It is also possible to freeze tiramisu without bitter cocoa powder in plastic wrap
