One of the first things that my husband cooked made for me shortly after we met was Tiramisù!

It made sense therefore that in preparing recipes for the Lavazza UK Wimbledon challenge, that he show me how to make it for Bambina. Her very first, very own tasty Tiramisù!

Lavazza is one of the proud sponsors of Wimbledon and will be serving up little cups of quality and aroma throughout the Wimbledon Championships.

In Italy there are versions of this dessert for children, usually made by dunking the sponge fingers into chocolatey milk. For Bambina’s Tiramisù I used decaffeinated Lavazza coffee.

What you need:

500g of Mascarpone cheese

4 fresh eggs

400g of Savoiardi biscuits

120g of sugar

Cocoa powder

6 coffee cups of Lavazza Decaffeinato

What you do:

Pour the coffee into a bowl and let it cool down (I like the coffee without sugar so that the Tiramisù is not too sweet, but you can sweeten it if you like)

Separate the egg yolks and whites and then mix the yolks with the sugar until a stiff creamy consistency

Mix the egg whites until they become firm

Add the Mascarpone cheese to the egg yolks and mix until smooth

Add the egg white to the Mascarpone mix, whisk until smooth

Dunk the Savoiardi biscuits in the coffee (wet them well without soaking them) and layer them inside the bowl

Pour the Tiramisu’ cream on top of your soaked Savoiardi biscuits and level it out with a spatula

Add a sprinkling of angel dust, urh, I mean, chocolate cocoa using a sieve

Add another layerer of soaked Savoiardi biscuits and Tiramisu’ cream until the bowl is almost full

Cover by sprinkling angel dust, urh, I mean cocoa

Chuck your Tiramisu’ in the fridge for a couple of hours so that its sets


All you need to polish off a beautiful dessert is a beautiful daughter!

Buon appetito Bambina!
