Red fruit tiramisu

A while back I shared a recipe for salted caramel tiramisu from Laura Zavan's book 'Tiramis├╣', a collection of the most delicious variations of the Italian dessert. Now I'm sharing my favorite one: tiramisu with red fruits. Contrary to the classic version, here the ladyfingers are dipped into a strawberry sauce instead of coffee and sweet wine is mixed under the mascarpone cream. It's a wonderfully light dessert that, to be honest, I've wanted to share for quite a while but simply couldn't find a way to properly photograph. Then I found these super cute jam jars at Dille & Kamille and knew it was meant to be. Let's get started!


  • 500g mascarpone
  • 5 eggs
  • 120g + 2tbsp sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 10cl sweet wine
  • 500g strawberries
  • 100g raspberries
  • 100g blackberries
  • 2 oranges
  • ± 30 ladyfingers

How to make the mascarpone cream:

  1. Separate the eggs.
  2. Beat the egg yolks and the sugar into a foamy mixture.
  3. Add the mascarpone and the sweet wine and whip until you get a thick cream.
  4. In another bowl, whip the egg whites with a pinch of salt.
  5. Gently fold the egg whites into the mascarpone mixture.
  6. Put the mascarpone cream in the fridge while you make the strawberry sauce.

How to make the strawberry sauce:

  1. Mix or blend the strawberries with 2 tablespoons of sugar (add more if needed)
  2. Squeeze the oranges with a juice press
  3. Add the orange juice to the strawberries and stir

How to put it all together:

Honestly when it comes to the layering, it's just like lasagna. You can do it any way you want, it will still end up tasting fabulous. The technique largely depends on the medium you use to present the tiramisu in. For my jam jar versions I did the following:
  1. Start with a layer of mascarpone cream
  2. Dip a ladyfinger into the strawberry sauce, crack it in two and put it on top of the cream
  3. Add a raspberry, blackberry & strawberry (Tip: if they're large ones, I choose to cut them up first)
  4. Repeat this until the jar is full and finish with a nice layer of cream and red fruits on top
  5. Refrigerate for about an hour and enjoy!

Have you ever experimented with ways to make tiramisu? If you give this recipe a go, be sure to share your thoughts on it!
