Strawberries Tiramisu: My Favourite Tiramisù version


Last Updated on November 11, 2023 by Laura Teso

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.

My Strawberries Tiramisu Recipe

Strawberries Tiramisu Ingredients (about 4 servings)

  • 500 g Mascarpone cheese
  • 1 kg strawberries
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 4 egg whites
  • 200 g sugar
  • 400 g ladyfingers biscuits
  • 400 ml milk
  • 50 ml Marsala or other fortified wine

Tiramisu Preparation

  1. Rinse and chop the strawberries.
  2. Whip the egg yolks with the sugar until the mixture is white and fluffy.
  3. With a wooden spoon, mix the mascarpone until it becomes a smooth cream without lumps.
  4. Unite the mascarpone to mixture of eggs and sugar, stirring well.
  5. Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt and gently add them to the egg-mascarpone cream.
  6. Unite the strawberries with the cream and stir gently.
  7. Mix Marsala with milk.
  8. Take a casserole. Dip quickly the ladyfingers in the marsala + milk liquid: the cookies must be well soaked, but not completely.
  9. Cover the bottom of the casserole with the soaked biscuits.
  10. Spread generously the strawberried mascarpone cream over the cookies.
  11. Form multiple layers with cookies & cream.
  12. Cover with plastic wrap and keep in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
