To make lady finger biscuit -

  • The first step is to cream the butter and sugar together until its nice and fluffy.

  • Now add milk and vanilla essence. Whisk them well.

  • Add all purpose flour/ Maida to this. Fold the batter to get a thick consistency.

  • Take a piping bag and fill this batter in it.

  • Pipe it into cylindrical shape in a tray.

  • Bake it in a preheated oven at 200 degrees C for 15-20 mins or until brown.

For the mascarpone cream-

  • Take 200gms mascarpone cheese and whisk it to make it smooth. Do not over beat it.

  • Add powdered sugar and whisk again. Over beating may lead to curdling of cheese.

  • Now take whipping cream in a mixing bowl and beat it till stiff peaks.

  • Add vanilla essence and the mascarpone sugar mixture. Fold it well. Do not overmix.


  • Take 1/2 cup water and bring it to boil. Add 2 tsp coffee powder. Mix and keep it aside.


To assemble the tiramisu-

  • Layer your serving dish with a very thin layer of mascarpone cream.

  • Dip lady finger biscuits into coffee. Place them in this arrangement. After arranging pour two spoons of coffee on top evenly.

  • Now spread half of the cream on top evenly. Reserve some to pipe it on top.

  • Now pipe small rounds on the whole dish.

  • Dust it with cocoa parad powder evenly.

  • Refrigerate it for 4 hours or more.
