  • 300g (10.5 oz) fresh raspberries
  • 200g (7 oz) ladyfingers (Savoiardi)
  • 500g (17.5 oz) mascarpone cheese
  • 250ml (1 cup) heavy cream
  • 100g (3.5 oz) granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp raspberry liqueur (optional)
  • 250ml (1 cup) freshly brewed coffee, cooled
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish

Method of Preparation

  1. Brew a cup of coffee and let it cool to room temperature. Add the raspberry liqueur if using and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream with 50g (1.75 oz) of sugar and vanilla extract until soft peaks form.
  3. In another bowl, mix the mascarpone cheese with the remaining 50g (1.75 oz) of sugar until smooth.
  4. Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture until fully combined.
  5. Dip each ladyfinger briefly into the cooled coffee and arrange a single layer in the bottom of a 9x9-inch (23x23 cm) baking dish.
  6. Spread half of the mascarpone cream over the ladyfingers.
  7. Sprinkle half of the fresh raspberries evenly over the mascarpone layer.
  8. Repeat with another layer of coffee-dipped ladyfingers, the remaining mascarpone cream, and the remaining raspberries.
  9. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results.
  10. Before serving, dust the top with cocoa powder and garnish with fresh mint leaves.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • For a more intense raspberry flavor, lightly mash some of the raspberries before adding them to the layers.
  • Make sure the coffee is cooled to room temperature before dipping the ladyfingers to prevent them from becoming too soggy.
  • Allow the tiramisu to chill for at least 4 hours to let the flavors meld together beautifully.
