To make a tiramisu, you will need two layers of biscuits and the other two of mascarpone. At first, you whisk Grand Marnier and espresso together to create a dipping sauce. Then, you soak the ladyfingers in this sauce and arrange the dipped lady fingers in the baking pan. Please keep in mind that you quickly dip these biscuits to avoid tasting soggy.

You also fulfill the space in the baking pan with smaller pieces of ladyfingers. The remaining ladyfingers and espresso mixture for the 2nd layer later. 

2. Prepare the mascarpone cream 

After making the 1st layer of the dipped biscuits, you can go to the next step, preparing the mascarpone cream. You can use either a handheld or a stand mixer with a paddle to beat rum and mascarpone together.

When completing to blend this mixture well, you set it aside and go to the third step.

3. Use heavy cream to make whipping cream

Using the same handheld or stand mixer, you blend heavy cream with vanilla extract at medium-high speed in 3-4 minutes. An ideal consistency of the tiramisu cream will form medium peaks. 

After that, you add the whipped cream into the mascarpone and blend until smooth.

4. Steam the egg yolks

It’s perfect to have a double boiler for this step to steam the egg yolks. If you don’t own anyone, you can replace it by a bowl over a small pot. Don’t forget to watch the water not to touch the bowl.  

Please note that you keep the heat at a medium-low level. It would be best if you use a whisk to beat the egg yolks. Then you add 50g of granulated sugar and mix them in 5 minutes until foamy. Finally, you remove the combination from the heat and add it to the mascarpone mixture.    

5. Beat the egg whites

Now, you increase the speed of whisking and pour 50g of sugar into this mixture. You keep beating it in 4-5 minutes until it forms stiff peaks. Note in this step is not to over whisk the egg whites as they will become too dry.

You fold it into the mascarpone cream and blend well. After that, you can start spreading the cream over the 1st layer of ladyfingers. By using an offset spatula, you can spread the cream evenly. 

6. Make the 2nd layer of the ladyfingers 

Layering the cream

You use the remaining ladyfingers and dip into the expresso mixture to make the last layer. Please note to press down this layer gently to help the biscuits neat and compact. 

One more time, the offset spatula will be helpful for you to spread the mascarpone mixture on the top. Ultimately, you put the baking pan with layers of ladyfingers and cream into a fridge for 2-3 hours. 

Spread the last layer of the mascarpone cream. 

7. Add the cocoa layer, then chill 

You use the cocoa powder to sprinkle the chilled tiramisu. The process will leave cocoa powder in the rim of the baking pan, so you should wipe it to clean. Then, you put the baking pan back into the fridge for 8 hours or up to 1 day. 

8. Serve

After hours of cooling in the refrigerator, you can serve the final tiramisu. It would help if you use a sharp knife, then cut the chilled tiramisu into portions. A cup of tea can be perfect to taste with your homemade tiramisu.
