There are traditional ways to make tiramisu and then there is the True Modern Way. The same amazing taste, but half a step.

Some Simple Tiramisu Ingredients.
There are traditional ways to make tiramisu and then there are Modern Proper methods. The same amazing taste, but half a step. We have stepped a little beyond tradition, but the end result is no less delicious than a tiramisu that spends all day. Compare the list of ingredients - You can say that our list is simplified, but in accordance with the spirit of the original recipe:

  • Egg yolk
  • Sugar
  • Milk
  • Mascarpone cheese
  • Espresso or super strong coffee
  • Italian Ladyfingers (savoiardi)
  • Cocoa powder
  • Liquor, like brandy or cognac

Confused How to Make Tiramisu?
We mixed this recipe a little and made a number of shortcuts, but there is one thing that cannot be ignored. The key to this recipe - and more! —Tiramisu is good coffee. Strong coffee. We recently used OXO's Pour-Over Coffee Maker with Water Tanks for all our small batches and we can't say enough about it. The water tank has a small hole pattern that automatically distributes hot water evenly, mimicking how you would do traditional pouring of coffee drops. This amazing coffee maker makes it easy to make super-strong coffee because it has all the sizes you need writing there on the machine. That means you get the perfect cup, every time.

After you brew a cup of strong coffee that is very important and ready to use, this tiramisu is quite simple. Here's how to make tiramisu:

  • Shake the heavy whipped cream until the top is stiff.
  • Mix mascarpone, maple, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  • Dip the store-bought finger cakes in coffee and lay them - side by side - on a plate.
  • Apply half the beaten cream mixture to the coffee-soaked cake. Repeat.
  • Refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  • Dust with cocoa powder and cinnamon until finished. Then serve!

Where are all my Tiramisu fans?
This cream dessert must be one of the best out there. The contrast in texture and taste is second to none, but maybe I'm biased because I like almost everything Italian. So much so that I may or may not claim to be a little Italian myself now and then (although I don't have evidence to support that claim).

Whatever it is, Italian food or not, there is no reason that the most famous dessert in Italy is truly delicious.

How do you make original Tiramisu?
Authentic Tiramisu requires liquor and beaten eggs, but we have decided to ignore technical matters and use thick cream with mascarpone folded into it. This heavenly mixture is layered between toes soaked in coffee, and as a result, all the satisfaction of tiramisu becomes half the time and with half the chaos. I know, I know, this is brilliant.

The most challenging part about this recipe is to resist the urge to get into the plate with a fork when it is cold in the refrigerator overnight. However, your patience will be appreciated, once you enjoy the first soft bite that is perfectly layered. What you need to make this moment truly perfect is a delicious cup of coffee to enjoy with the tiramisu, and I have a feeling that OXO Pour-Over Coffee Maker can help with that too.


  • 1 glass Heavy whip cream
  • 1 glass Mascarpone, soft
  • 1/4 cup Pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 cups Very strong coffee made in pour oxo on top of the coffee maker
  • 1 Lady's finger pack
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder


  1. In a standing mixer, with an electric mixer hand or by hand, shake heavy whipped cream to form a rigid peak. Put aside.
  2. Mix mascarpone, maple, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and vanilla until mixed. Add whipped cream and shake again until smooth.
  3. Dip each woman's finger in coffee. Don't soak cookies or they will get too wet. Cover a 9 × 9 square pan with a layer of women's fingers.
  4. Spread half of the whip cream mixture on the cake. Repeat dipping the coffee with the remaining female fingers to form another layer. Fill again with the remaining cream and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  5. Clean with cocoa powder and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon before serving.
