EQUIPMENT

  • Medium size rectangular baking dish
  • Piping bag with a round tip

INGREDIENTS
 

Ladyfingers:

  • 5 large eggs
  • cup/130 grams granulated sugar
  • 1 cup/140 grams all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons/30 grams cornstarch
  • ½ cup/80 grams powdered sugar
  • 2 cups/480 ml milk for soaking the biscuits

Cream:

  • 7 ounces/200 grams mascarpone cheese
  • 1⅔ cups/400 ml heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding

Topping:

  • 5.3 ounces/150 grams milk jam
  • 1.8 ounces/50 grams butter, at room temperature
  • 3.5 ounces/100 grams sliced almonds

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 355 F (180 C) in the turbo setting.

Ladyfingers:

  • Separate the egg yolks and whites into two bowls. In the mixing bowl with egg whites, add a pinch of salt and whisk, gradually adding half of the granulated sugar for about 7 seconds until stiff peaks form.
  • Add the remaining sugar to the bowl with the egg yolks and beat vigorously for a few seconds until you get a pale and fluffy mixture.
  • Combine the egg mixtures using gentle folding motions until you get a smooth batter. Add the flour and cornstarch and fold until fully incorporated.
  • Transfer the batter to a piping bag with a round tip and pipe ladyfingers, about 4 mm long, onto a baking sheet. Dust generously with powdered sugar and bake for about 12 minutes. Remove and let them cool on a wire rack.

Cream:

  • In a mixing bowl, place mascarpone cheese, heavy cream, and granulated sugar. Beat until you achieve a creamy texture. Add the vanilla instant pudding and continue to beat until fully combined.

Assembly:

  • Prepare a bowl with milk and dip the ladyfingers. Arrange them in a medium size rectangular dish and create a uniform layer. Spread half of the cream mixture on top and even it out. Dip the remaining ladyfingers in milk and arrange them beside each other. Cover with the remaining cream mixture, smoothing it out. Refrigerate for an hour.

Topping:

  • Preheat the oven to 355℉ (180℃). Place the sliced almonds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool on the parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, melt the butter and add milk jam. Stir well, then add the toasted almonds. Pour over the tiramisu and spread it evenly using a spatula. Refrigerate the tiramisu for at least 3 hours to let it set before serving. Enjoy!

What is Tiramisu?

Tiramisu, originating from Italy’s Veneto region, is a beloved dessert celebrated for its delightful combination of flavors and textures. The classic version of the cake consists of layers of delicate ladyfingers, briefly soaked in espresso or coffee liqueur, and a luscious mixture of mascarpone cheese, eggs, sugar, and a hint of liquor. Topped with a dusting of cocoa powder, it offers a harmonious contrast between the coffee-soaked base and the creamy, sweet filling. Tiramisu is known for its elegant presentation and has become a global favorite, cherished for its balance of bitter and sweet, making it a perfect finale to any meal or special occasion.

Are there variations of Tiramisu?

Indeed, there are numerous delightful variations of Tiramisu to cater to diverse palates and occasions, like this milk jam Tiramisu recipe 🙂

Fruit Tiramisu incorporates fresh berries or fruits, adding a refreshing twist to the classic recipe. Chocolate Tiramisu features layers of chocolate shavings or cocoa powder for a rich, indulgent experience. Additionally, creative interpretations like lemon, pistachio, or even savory Tiramisu with ingredients like smoked salmon showcase the dessert’s adaptability.

Can this milk jam Tiramisu be made ahead of time?

Absolutely, Tiramisu can be made in advance, and it often benefits from a little extra time in the refrigerator. In fact, allowing it to chill for several hours or overnight enhances the melding of flavors and the dessert’s overall consistency.

Can I freeze this milk jam Tiramisu?

Tiramisu is generally not recommended for freezing due to its complex texture and sensitivity to temperature changes. Freezing can alter its creamy consistency, potentially resulting in a less desirable texture when thawed. It’s best enjoyed fresh or refrigerated to preserve its delightful layers and flavors. While freezing is possible, it may not yield the same luscious Tiramisu experience as serving it fresh or chilled from the fridge.

How should Tiramisu be stored?

Tiramisu should be stored in a refrigerator to maintain its freshness and safety. Cover it with plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container to prevent it from absorbing other odors in the fridge. Storing Tiramisu at a cool temperature helps preserve its creamy texture and delicious flavors. It’s best enjoyed when chilled and taken out just before serving for the ultimate Tiramisu experience.

Is Tiramisu gluten free?

Traditional Tiramisu is not gluten free because it contains ladyfingers made from wheat flour. However, gluten free ladyfingers can be bought in store, or you can make it yourself by substituting wheat flour with all-purpose gluten free flour.
