    Do all the ingredients need to be at room temp? Probably a silly question but I don’t want to mess it up.

    • Emma Christensen

      Hi, Sana! The mascarpone and the whipping cream should be cold from the fridge. For the rest of the ingredients, it’s not a big deal. (The yolks, for instance, can be cold from the fridge or room temperature.) Enjoy!

        Thanks Emma!!
        Tried the recipe today and it was delicious!! I substituted the alcohol for Martinelli’s apple juice. The recipe is simple enough. The only thing that took too long was the zabaglione but other than that

    Compliments because you really do it as we make it in Italy, I follow Simply recipes and like the way it works. The only thing I don’t do is to whisk over hot water (I will try it too) and I use 3 eggs for 500 grs of mascarpone… thank you for your work

    Is it easy to double?

    Do you have any suggestions for a kid-friendly tiramisu? I absolutely adore this dessert, but cannot really make or order it because of my young kids who cannot have neither alcohol nor coffee.
    Thank you!

    • Emma Christensen

      Hi, Ala! We haven’t tested it, but you might try subbing apple cider or juice for the alcohol and cocoa (mixed with water) for the coffee. Let us know how it turns out if you try it!

    Yay! A recipe that doesn’t have raw eggs in it!

    Looks like a delicious recipe. The coffee flavor has always held me back from trying this recipe. Would you recommend a substitute for the espresso liquid?

    • Emma Christensen

      Hi, Norma! I think the roasted flavor and bitterness from the espresso is key to this dessert — it helps cut the sweetness of the other ingredients. But I think another liquid with similar flavors might work. What about some cocoa, made with water and no milk?

    Real Tiramisù recipe doesn’t have cream. Also eggs are not cooked. Just whipp egg yolks with sugar add mascarpone add ruhm add whipped egg whites.

    Many thanks for your wonderful recipe… I’ve been waiting for so long. Finally tiramisu in my kitchen.
    I tried tiramisu with egg whites and in my opinion its lighter and fluffier.

    Emma! Will definitely try it this weekend and let you know. Thanks!!

    Is there anyway to skip the booze or a non alcoholic substitute that I could possibly use?

    • Emma Christensen

      Hi Sana! You might try subbing 2-3 teaspoons of alcohol-free vanilla extract or rum extract, or a mix of the two. I’ve also heard of people subbing some apple juice or cider, since that has a similar fruity flavor as Marsala wine. Let us know if you try it!

      Hi Sana. Please do let us know what substitute you used and how it turns out. Thanks!

    A slightly different recipe than the one I use. I think mine is a little less complicated. I wisk the yolks with the sugar at room temperature until almost white and double the volume, then I incorporate the mascarpone and booze. Instead of the whipped cream I fold in the eggs’ whites whipped to hard peacks. The rest is exactly the same. I know the raw eggs can put some off, but it’s absolutely delicious and is the only cake my husband will accept for his birthday.

    I’ve never made tiramisu, but like your mum absolutely adore it. Having been fortunate to have had it made for me by my wonderful Italian friend, yours looks absolutely authentic. A delicious recipe that has been saved. Thank you.
