100% Homemade Tiramisu

100% Homemade Tiramisu by Ng @ Whats for Dinner? The February 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen and Deeba of Passionate About Baking. They chose Tiramisu as the challenge for the month. Their challenge recipe is based on recipes from The Washington Post, Cordon Bleu at Home and Baking Obsession.

Making 100% Homemade Tiramisu was a big challenge and took a few weeks for me to complete. We had to make all of the ingredients from scratch: Mascarpone Cheese, Zabaglione, Pastry Cream and the Savoiardi or Ladyfingers. Did I say WOW!

100% Homemade Tiramisu by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?The results were very tasty. Saeid couldn't believe that I made this myself. Every bit was an explosion of flavor. But was it worth the work, NO WAY!!!! I would make Tiramisu, but I will be buying the ladyfingers but I will still be making my own zabaglione and pastry cream. Or maybe I'll forget about the tiramisu and just eat the zabaglione right out of the bowl!!!!


  1. it takes a couple of days to make a 100% homemade one but it worth it. I had this one and it was so good. It melts nicely in the mouth ....
