• 6 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee, cooled
  • 2 tablespoons rum (optional)
  • 24 ladyfingers
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until well combined and slightly thickened.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it begins to simmer. Remove from heat.
  3. Slowly pour the hot milk into the egg yolk mixture while continuously whisking.
  4. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  6. Gently fold the mascarpone cheese into the cooled egg yolk mixture, then fold in the whipped cream until well combined.
  7. In a shallow dish, combine the brewed coffee and rum.
  8. Dip each ladyfinger into the coffee mixture, allowing it to soak for a few seconds on each side. Place them in a single layer in a rectangular serving dish.
  9. Spread half of the mascarpone cream mixture over the ladyfingers.
  10. Repeat the process with another layer of dipped ladyfingers and the remaining cream mixture.
  11. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  12. Before serving, dust the top of the tiramisu with cocoa powder.
