Tiramisu Recipe

This tiramisu recipe is one that I’ve used many, many times. It’s always a great hit whenever I bring it to parties. Last week, I made these tiramisu in disposable tubs as gifts for my coworkers and friends for Christamas.

Personal size Tiramisu

I think the original recipe was from a Chinese magazine, but I only have a scribbled version on paper. Now I finally have a chance to type it up and translate it.


  • 2 cups of coffee
  • 4 tablespoons of rum
  • 20-30 pieces of ladyfingers (depending on the size of your dish/pan)
  • 475g Mascarpone cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups of whipped cream
  • A pinch of cocoa powder

Yields: about 8 pieces of personal size tubs of Tiramisu or 1 Tiramisu in a 8 x 8 glass container
