Decisive Cravings Tiramisu inside slice

Tiramisu is a very special dish in my family which Mum only whips up for special celebrations. After a fair bit of begging Mum finally agreed to share her recipe. Being a true ‘Home Chef’ this Tiramisu is just one of many signature meals she makes expertly, so stay tuned for more recipes in time. Please enjoy and share with your family and friends too, this is a must make!

Tiramisu by Antonia Curcio.

Serves 8


4 egg yolks

8 tablespoons of caster sugar (adjust to taste)

500gms mascarpone

2 cups of strong black coffee (must be cold)

20 Savoiardi (sometimes I alternate layers of Savoiardi and sponge)

2-3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder (we love this one)



30 gms of soft goats cheese. This gives the mascarpone layer an incredible flavour that is still quite subtle. We love Aldi’s Emporium Selection Natural Goats Cheese.

3-4 tablespoons of liqueur – like Galliano Espresso, Amaretto, Kahlua, etc.

Fold in Mascarpone and gently mix well with a wooden spoon.


Combine coffee, and if you are making your Tiramisu with liqueur then add it here.


Decisive Cravings Tiramisu savoiardi


Dip the Savoiardi in the coffee and place a layer in a deep pan.


Spread the Mascarpone mixture over the Savoardi.


Repeat the above two steps until the Savoiardi and Mascarpone have been used (you may need an extra bowl if there is surplus). Always place the Mascarpone as the final layer.

Dust the top with cocoa powder and once covered place the Tiramisu in the fridge for a minimum of 5 hours (overnight is best if possible).

Notes: Once you develop your style making Tiramisu you can experiment with the amount of goats cheese, different liqueurs and sponge (sometimes we use left over Pandoro or Panettone around Christmas time).
