  • 6 egg yolks
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 300ml pot double cream
  • 2 x 250g tubs mascarpone
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 150ml marsala or sweet wine
  • 24 sponge fingers
  • 350g raspberry



    A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many…

  • icing sugar, to dust


  1. Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water with the egg yolks and the sugar in, whisk until pale, creamy and doubled in volume. Remove from the heat and whisk for another 1 min until cool.

  2. In another bowl beat the cream, mascarpone and vanilla until combined, thick and creamy. Fold or very gently whisk this mixture into the creamy yolks.

  3. Dip half the sponge fingers into the marsala and arrange over the bottom of a serving dish. Pour over half of the creamy mixture, then top with most of the raspberries. Repeat the layers, then finish by dotting over the remaining raspberries. Cover and chill for at least 2 hrs.

  4. Dust the tiramisu with icing sugar just before serving in big bowls.

Please tell me where I went wrong. Followed recipe to the letter but the creamy layer was pure liquid!!!!

My regular go to family favourite/dinner party dessert which everyone loves. Original recipe from Good Food Magazine included orange juice for soaking sponge fingers in, and I substitute the marsala for Tesco finest curacao orange triple sec.

Went down a treat!!!! Even my brother in law who has an aversion to sweet things came back for more. For those who are not inclined in using alcohol then the marsala can be substituted with orange juice.

I didn't have Marsala or sweet wine so rooted through drinks cupboard.. used Cassis to soak sponge fingers in! It was delicious and went down very well with my guests.

Oh my goodness, this is truly amazing!! Made for a big party and there wasn't even a scraping left in the bowl. Even the non dessert eater came back for more. Only changes I made was I used some chocolate & vanilla sponge fingers, amaretto rather than masala and I used a mix of mini strawberries and raspberries. Yum!!

This was really easy to make and tasted delicious! It takes no more than 20 minutes to prep and assemble and it a sure fire dinner hit! I would perhaps make the sponges a little more boozy and think perhaps a liquor or sherry would do the trick. I also added white chocolate with strawberries (50p a bar from asda) which added another lovely dimension to it!

lovely!!! I would increase the quantities of spong and raspberries as I seemed to have rather a lot of the custard mixture but it was lovely. I made it for a garden party and it went down a storm!

This didn't work for me but I think it was my fault as I used too big a dish. I had problems with the sponge fingers floating upwards to the top of the 'custard' so the appearance of the dessert was not good. Next time I think I would use a trifle dish and would put the sponge fingers at the bottom with a deep layer of raspberries on top of them to weigh then down, so when the 'custard' is added the fingers will not rise. I like lostkat's idea of using the raspberry liqueur and will do the same next time.

Made this on Easter Sunday for the family and it went down a storm. Didn't leave long enough for it to set, but whacked it in the freezer for half an hour, which sorted it out. I also used Crème de Framboise (raspberry liqueur) & orange juice mixed together instead of marsala, which was lovely.

I. Made this today as my family were coming to lunch was short of time so used ready made custard mixed with the mascarpone and sweet sherry to soak the biscuits, it tasted rather good

Thanks for your question. Yes you can make it the day before. We'd suggest decorating with the final raspberries and dusting with icing sugar just before serving.

What size serving bowl have you used to make the tiramisu in (mentioned in step 3). I can't make the size out from the picture.

Thanks for your question. The size doesn't need to be exact which is why we haven't listed one but you can use one roughly 20 - 25cm in diameter. We hope that helps.

Thanks for your question. You can use frozen raspberries as an alternative. We'd suggest defrosting them beforehand.
