Author's Notes

If you don’t have a barista setup at home, you can get freshly brewed espresso from a local coffee shop, or use strongly brewed coffee. If you don’t have Kahlua, you can substitute with rum; add a little sugar into the coffee depending on how sweet you like. Can also skip the liquor if not preferred. Or alternatively, use rum extract for flavor.

Use commercially made ladyfingers because they are thicker, crisp in texture, and very absorbent, and the shape keeps well even after being dipped in the coffee soaking syrup. Also saves time instead of making your own.

When soaking the ladyfingers in the coffee mixture, lightly dip the ladyfinger once on each side so they are just moist. Do not drench the ladyfingers. You want the center to be a bit dry as it will absorb the moisture from the cream custard. If they are too soft, the cake will collapse.

This tiramisu can be made 2 to 3 days in advance and can be kept frozen.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Pour Milk (1 3/4 cups) and Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup) in a saucepan. Cook the milk mixture over medium heat and bring the milk to just boiling, stirring constantly.
step 2
Meanwhile, whisk together the Farmhouse Eggs® Large Brown Eggs (6), Milk (1/4 cup), Granulated Sugar (1/4 cup), and All-Purpose Flour (1/4 cup) in a heat proof bowl.
step 3
When the milk mixture comes to a boil, gradually whisk into the egg yolk mixture. Then transfer into a clean saucepan.
step 4
Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring continuously until it comes to a boil. Continue to stir for another minute until it really thickens up before removing from heat.
step 5
Using a strainer, strain the custard into a large bowl. This is to ensure a smooth custard and remove any lumps that may have formed.
step 6
Whisk in the Vanilla Extract (1/2 Tbsp), Butter (3 Tbsp), and Dark Rum (1/4 cup) until well incorporated.
step 7
Immediately cover the surface of the custard with cling wrap to prevent a crust from forming. Leave aside to room temperature and refrigerate overnight, or at least 6 hours till the custard turns thick and cold.
step 8
Remove from refrigerator once the custard has cooled sufficiently.
step 9
Place the Mascarpone Cheese (1 cup) in a bowl and beat till soft and smooth. Then gently fold in the cold custard into the mascarpone cheese and mix till smooth, and we are done with the custard filling. Next, prepare the coffee mixture.
step 10
Combine Espresso (1 cup) and Kahlua (1/3 cup), then pour into a large shallow bowl for ease of dipping the ladyfingers.
step 11
Line a loaf pan with cling wrap. Make sure the cling wrap extends over the sides of the pan. Also, have ready the ladyfingers on the side. We can now assemble the tiramisu.
step 12
First, dip the Ladyfingers (32) one at a time in the coffee mixture. Arrange soaked ladyfingers on the bottom of the loaf pan, side by side, in a single layer till the whole bottom is covered.
step 13
Spoon custard filling over the ladyfingers to cover them completely. Repeat twice, with two more alternating layers of soaked ladyfingers and custard filling. Finish with a final layer of soaked ladyfingers and cover with cling wrap. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
step 14
After chilled, remove the cling wrap from the top of the tiramisu. Place a serving plate over the tiramisu and gently invert from the loaf pan. Then remove the whole cling wrap.
step 15
Sieve Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (2 Tbsp) over the top of tiramisu and it's ready to be served. Cut into smaller slices before serving. Enjoy!
