The Strawberries Tiramisu is a variation of Tiramisù (yes the Italian original word for it is Tiramisù with an accent on the u) that I love very much, more than the original version. But if you are traditionalist, don’t worry: here you can read my post about the classic Italian tiramisu recipe.
I tasted this Tiramisu version about 16 years ago, at a friend’s house. I never knew that Tiramisu could be different. Since that day I only knew the traditional one with coffee and cocoa powder. I was astonished. Styrawberries Tiramisu charmed me and I often prepare it during strawberries season. Sadly it is not a long time! I find that the combination of mascarpone cheese and strawberries is a perfect match. When I’m in need of comfort food, this recipe is the perfect solution.
Strawberries Tiramisu Recipe
Strawberries Tiramisu Ingredients (about 4 servings)
- 500 g Mascarpone cheese

Strawberries Tiramisu Preparation
- Rinse and chop the strawberries.
- Whip the egg yolks with the sugar until the mixture is white and fluffy.
- With a wooden spoon, mix the mascarpone until it becomes a smooth cream without lumps.
