Limoncello Tiramisu


Tiramisu is a classic Italian dessert loved by many. This variation with Limoncello adds a refreshing citrus twist to the traditional Tiramisu. Here’s how to prepare it:


250g Mascarpone cheese

250ml heavy cream

3 egg yolks

100g sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

250ml strong brewed espresso, cooled

3 tbsp Limoncello liqueur

24 ladyfingers

Lemon zest, for garnish

Fresh berries (e.g., strawberries or raspberries), for garnish (optional)



Mix egg yolks and sugar:


In a bowl, mix the egg yolks with the sugar until the mixture becomes pale and creamy.

2. Add Mascarpone:


Add the Mascarpone cheese and vanilla extract to the egg yolk-sugar mixture and mix well until you get a smooth cream.

3. Whip the cream:


In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks.

4. Fold in the cream:


Gently fold the whipped cream into the Mascarpone mixture until well combined. Be careful not to overmix to keep the mixture airy.

5. Prepare espresso and Limoncello:


Prepare the espresso and let it cool. Then, stir the Limoncello into the espresso.

6. Soak the ladyfingers:


Briefly dip the ladyfingers into the espresso-Limoncello mixture, ensuring they’re lightly soaked but not too long to avoid making them too soft.

7. Layer:


In a serving dish or individual glasses, layer soaked ladyfingers, a layer of Mascarpone cream, and optionally a layer of berries (if using), alternating until you’ve used all the ingredients. Start and end with a layer of Mascarpone cream.

8. Chill:


Refrigerate the Limoncello Tiramisu for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow it to set and the flavors to meld.

9. Serve:


Before serving, sprinkle with lemon zest and garnish with fresh berries if desired.

This refreshing Limoncello Tiramisu is a delightful twist on the classic Tiramisu, perfect for warm days or special occasions. Enjoy the citrusy notes and creamy texture of this dessert. Bon appétit!
