Eggnog Tiramisu

Well! Happy belated New Year! I had the most amazing Christmas break – in my native country, Madagascar. Just got back from the hot and humid Island and ready to brave the cold Alberta winter – in the kitchen, of course. I will make sure to share my most delicious adventures in my next posts. Until I get all my photos sorted out, I hope you can try this surprisingly light and fluffy tiramisu. The secret’s in the eggnog!!!

The recipe is inspired from the Epicurious recipe, without having to make your own eggnog. Bon Appétit!


1 pound mascarpone cheese

1 cup eggnog

1 ounce dark rum

2 teaspoons grated nutmeg

1 cup whipping cream

1 cup strong espresso coffee

30 ladyfinger cookies

1 cup chocolate shavings

1. In a large bowl, mix mascarpone cheese, eggnog, nutmeg and 1 tablespoon of rum.

2. In another bowl, whip the cream until forming soft peaks.

3. Gently fold the cream into the cheese mixture.

4. Prepare the hot espresso.

5. To assemble, dip the ladyfingers in the hot coffee and layer at the bottom of a serving dish.

6. Sprinkle with rum and chocolate shavings.

7. Spoon some mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers.

8. Repeat with one or two more layers of cookies, rum, chocolate shavings.

9. Finish with one layer of cheese covered with chocolate shavings.

10. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 6 hrs.
