American Tiramisu Tips and Tricks

Don’t have an espresso maker?

You can purchase espresso at a local coffee shop and refrigerate it until ready to use. Or you can use powdered “instant” espresso coffee and water to make the espresso for this recipe.

Don’t have a double boiler?

Okay. You can place a small pot with 1 inch of water on the stovetop. Then put a glass bowl on top. The steam will heat the glass bowl like the crock of a double boiler.

Finding ladyfinger

There are two types of ladyfingers… Savoyardi-style is the type to be sought! They are as crunchy as little cookies, and will soften over time. The other cake-like variety is too soft to work with.
cutting tips

Want very clean sides on each piece of tiramisu?

Be sure to wipe the knife blade with a damp paper towel between each cut. Also, be sure to make deep cuts, and run the knife through the bottom of the pan, so that the pieces come completely out of the pan.

individual part

Instead of making our recipe for American tiramisu in one large baking dish, you can layer it in individual ramekins.

Chocolate Shavings

Most American classic tiramisu recipes use unsweetened cocoa powder on top. However, if you’re looking for a way to make the top look more elegant, you can use a dark chocolate bar and a vegetable peeler to shave off the chocolate swirls on top.

Is American Tiramisu Gluten-Free?

Classic Ladyfinger Cookies are not gluten free. However, you can find gluten-free ladyfingers at specialty stores. If you use these instead of the traditional okra, the recipe is completely gluten-free!

Best Tiramisu Recipe FAQ

Can You Serve Tiramisu Immediately? Or is it just really cool and relaxing?

Yes and no. The actual cooking and preparation time for our Best Tiramisu Recipe totals 30 minutes. However, it is recommended that you refrigerate it for at least 4 hours for best results. (Overnight is even better!) This allows the mascarpone cream to harden and set, so it’s easier to take it out of the pan. It also gives time for the ladyfingers to soften all the way so they have a saturated cake texture.

However, if you just can’t wait, this tiramisu will still taste amazing! You may have to struggle to cut the pieces cleanly, and there may be a touch of crunch somewhere in between. However, even an hour of refrigeration will make a difference.
My tiramisu recipe is running out… what did I do wrong?

Most likely, you didn’t cook your sabayon long enough, or you didn’t whip the whipped cream enough. It is very important that both the ingredients are very coarse and firm before assembling.
My ladyfinger layers are soupy… what happened?

You let the ladyfingers soak in the espresso. They’ll absorb the espresso and rum pretty quickly, so just drop, flip, and remove!

Can I Make the American Tiramisu Ahead of Time?

Yes! You can make our tiramisu recipe up to 3 days ahead of time.
Leftovers: How Long Can You Keep Tiramisu in the Refrigerator?

Personally, I find that the taste really gets better after a day or two. You can store leftover tiramisu covered in the refrigerator for up to a week after making. You can even freeze it!
