This is a lighter way of the traditional Italian postre. It gives about one casserole with dishes for 6 – 8 persons.


  • 3/8 l of strong espresso
  • 1 lemon
  • 500 g mascarpone ( or 250 g mascarpone and 250 g curd)
  • 100 ml milk
  • 80 g sugar
  • 2 packages (~3 TS) vanilla sugar
  • 150 – 200 g ladyfingers
  • 2 TS grappa or amaretto
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa
  • cinnamon


  1. Make the espresso and let it cool down.
  2. Wash the lemon and press the juice into a glass.
  3. Mix the mascarpone (& curd), milk, sugar and vanilla sugar and stir well. Add the lemon juice.
  4. Mix the espresso and the grappa (or amaretto), put one layer of ladyfingers into a casserole (or sth. similar) and drizzle the espresso/grappa mix over the ladyfingers.
  5. Cover the ladyfingers with ca. 1/3 of the cream.
  6. Again put a layer of ladyfingers into the casserole and dirzzle the espresso. Continue until nothing is left. (About 3 or 4 layers.)
  7. Mix the cocoa with the cinnamon and sprinkle the mix over the tiramisù.
  8. Put it in the fridge for at least 8 hours.

This goes wonderfully after a nice dinner.
