A traditional Italian dessert, tiramisu, is a world-famous dessert. The main ingredients of tiramisu are espresso and mascarpone cheese. It is prepared in 40–45 minutes on average. The tiramisu cake, which is a very delicious dessert, is prepared with ladyfinger biscuits. Using pasteurized milk instead of UHT milk will improve the quality of the product. At the same time, the quality of the granulated coffee you will use is among the factors that determine the most important flavor criteria of tiramisu. When you plate the tiramisu, you can prepare a stylish presentation by spreading a pinch of cocoa on the base of the plate. At the same time, you can present it with strawberries.

Serving Suggestions
  • Tiramisu is among the desserts that suit every season. If you consume it in the winter, a hot Americano; in the summer, a filter coffee will help you cool off.
  • Vanilla ice cream is a great choice with tiramisu.
  • Rooibos tea is also an accompaniment to tiramisu.
  • Strawberry lemonade can be served with tiramisu in the summer.
  • Homemade kefir ice cream. Kefir ice cream is very high in probiotics and is one of the flavors that will go well with tiramisu. In addition, if you are someone who cannot consume kefir, kefir ice cream facilitates the consumption of kefir and makes you feel other flavors besides kefir.
Expert Tips
  • Mascarpone cheese must be used when making tiramisu.
  • To get the consistency of the cream right, make sure to use cold and fresh eggs.
  • To pasteurize the eggs, add the boiled sugar and water mixture to both the egg whites and yolks.
  • It is very important to whisk the ingredients until they are completely thickened.
  • All tools and equipment used in pastry products must be completely free of water. The product in contact with water prevents the pastry products from rising and negatively affects the formation of the desired consistency. For this reason, all tools and equipment should be thoroughly dried before being prepared for use.
  • It is very important to mix flour, sugar, and milk in the first place. It should be whipped well to avoid lumps during mixing.
  • After the cream is cooled, it should be whipped occasionally to prevent it from drying out, and a piece of butter will both glisten the cream and increase its flavor. 
  • At the last stage, wait for the surface to cool so that the cocoa you will pour on the tiramisu does not soak into the tiramisu.
  • As with most patisserie products, tiramisu will become even more delicious when consumed a day after it is made. Keeping it in the refrigerator for a day will allow all the flavors to marinate.
