The basic ingredients are ladyfingers , which must be of excellent quality like all the other raw materials: mascarpone, eggs, cream and sugar. An excellent espresso and bitter cocoa cannot be missing, to dampen the sweetness of the dessert.

This recipe was presented on Youtube by the Maestro, in the company of rapper (and, on that occasion, student) Fedez . So let's discover together Maestro Massari's tricks for preparing tiramisu, adapted in a simple key by Primo Chef!

How to prepare tiramisu with Iginio Massari's recipe

  1. First, prepare the espresso coffee and, when it is still hot, add 40 grams of sugar and 10 grams of unsweetened cocoa .
  2. Leave to cool and in the meantime prepare the mascarpone cream.
  3. Beat the yolks (in this recipe the use of egg whites is not foreseen, which are replaced by whipped cream) with the mascarpone , using an electric whisk.
  4. Still working the mixture with the whisk, add the liquid cream .
  5. Then add the remaining sugar and the Marsala wine and finally the whipped cream in two batches, stirring gently so that the mixture does not fall apart.
  6. Now that all the preparations are ready, all that remains is to assemble the tiramisu. In a baking dish or serving dish, spread a thin layer of mascarpone cream . Soak the ladyfingers in the syrup and form a first layer which you will cover with about half of the cream .
  7. Form a second layer of soaked biscuits and complete with the remaining cream .
  8. Sprinkle with bitter cocoa and leave in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours before serving.

Also try the vegan tiramisu ( light , but delicious like the original) and Carlo Cracco's apple pie : priceless!


Once this delicious dessert has been prepared, it would be a real shame not to finish it all right away. However, if you have any leftover portions, you can keep it for about 1-2 days in the refrigerator in a container with an airtight lid. We do not recommend freezing.
