How to make Tiramisu for Two

Tiramisu has been one of my favorite desserts of all time, I would give any food for just a piece of tiramisu. I didn’t have the chance to eat as much of this dessert as I wanted, maybe that’s why I loved it so much. With this recipe, you will have Tiramisu for Two.

When I was younger I thought that tiramisu is very hard to make and not everyone knows how to make it, but I realized that is quite easy.

I learned to make tiramisu from my mother-in-law, who would make it very often for my brother-in-law who was obsessed with tiramisu. That’s when I noticed that it’s easy to make. You need just a few ingredients for maximum flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 150 g of mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 200 ml of cold strong coffee
  • 1 tablespoon of Amaretto or Rum
  • approx. 5 lady fingers
  • cacao powder

Prepare 2 bowls, crack the egg and separate it. In the bowl with the egg yolk add 3 tablespoons of coconut sugar and in the bowl with the whites, add a pinch of salt.

Make some strong coffee, let it cool completely and add 1 tablespoon of Amaretto or Rum to it.

With a hand mixer whisk the egg yolk and sugar until creamy. Meanwhile, boil 300 ml of water into a pot and put the bowl over the pot. Make sure the bowl is heatproof. Over low heat cook the egg yolk stirring constantly, for approx. 10 minutes.

    1. We (my husband and I) are not so much into sweets, so when I’m making sommething sweet, I make just for the two of us, this way, I don’t have to finish an entire dish.

  1. I still remember the best tiramisu I ever had. It was in a little restaurant in Italy, opened 100 years before my birth, after my mother and I had already finished eating our primo, secundo and pasta…. And yet we somehow found room for a few bites of the most luscious, rich, melt-in-your-mouth dessert you could imagine. I love how simple your tiramisu is, and how it stays true to the beautiful original. Great work!

    1. Beautiful story! Thanks for sharing it :). That what I love about tiramisu, it’s so rich, and melts in your mouth.
