Strawberry Tiramisu Recipe

Strawberry Tiramisu Recipe

Tiramisù is a classic dessert of Italian cuisine, with a soft and creamy consistency, made of layers of Savoiardi soaked in coffee alternating with mascarpone cream and covered with cocoa.

Among the many variations of this famous dessert, the most popular and widespread is certainly the Strawberry Tiramisu.

There are different interpretations of the Strawberry Tiramisu: many use whipped cream instead of mascarpone cream and sponge cake instead of ladyfingers.

In this recipe the coffee is mixed with strawberry syrup; the traditional mascarpone cream is enriched with small pieces of strawberries and dark chocolate chips; the biscuits are ladyfingers, in accordance with tradition.

The result is a creamy dessert with a fresh flavor, perfect for the whole family and ideal to serve at celebrations. Beautiful to look at thanks to the strawberries, this spoon dessert is also simple to prepare and will color your spring tables.


Strawberry Tiramisu Recipe: Kitchen Tools and Equipment

For this recipe we opted for:

  • a ceramic baking pan of 30 x 19 cm (12 x 8 inch). If you want something more elegant look it here.
  • An electric stand mixer that really is a great help for making a perfect tiramisu. We opted for the KitchenAid but there are other really great brands.
  • You can also make tiramisu recipe with an electric hand mixer or with a whisk and lots of muscles (why sweating? We are not sure…)

Step 1) – First prepare the strawberries. So wash them carefully then cut them into very small pieces. Set aside 6 or 8 strawberries and cut them into thin slices. The latter serve as decoration.

Step 2) – Then prepare the syrup to soak the ladyfingers. Pour the strawberry syrup into the coffee and mix well. If you prefer a stronger taste, you can use a liqueur instead of syrup. For example Alchermes or Limoncello.

Step 3) – Now separate the egg whites from the yolks and remember that to whip the whites firm enough there must be no trace of yolk. Take a bowl and whip the egg whites until stiff: you will get at it when the egg whites will not move if you turn the bowl over. When ready, set aside. Now in another bowl (or the clean same one) whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until pale and smooth, 3 to 5 minutes.

Step 4) – When ready add mascarpone cheese. Whisk the cream slowly with the electric mixer.

Step 5) – Now add stiffen egg whites. Mix with a wooden spoon, from bottom to top. Mix slowly until it’s smooth and creamy. Mascarpone cream for tiramisu is ready.

Step 6) – Now quickly dip Savoiardi in the coffee with the strawberry syrup. IMPORTANT! The biscuits should not take too much liquid, otherwise the tiramisu will be too soggy. Then put them in a ceramic or glass pan.

Step 7) – Spread 4/5 tablespoons of mascarpone cream on the biscuits surface. Add chopped strawberries and some chocolate chips.

Step 8) – Add another layer of Savoiardi and then cover with more mascarpone cream, strawberries and chocolate chips and so on until the container is full.

Step 9) – Finally decorate your Strawberry Tiramisu with strawberries cut into thin slices and if you want with other chocolate chips. For decoration step, let your imagination run wild! Let it rest for 3 hours in the fridge before serving (even better if you make the tiramisu the day before, letting it rest overnight in the fridge).
