Massimo’s Leftover Tiramisu Recipe

Egg whites are always in demand and can be whipped into anything from meringues to dishes to even cocktails. But, egg yolks tend to get chucked aside. Here's a special Tiramisu recipe from Massimo Bottura to save them from waste in a delicious way.

100g egg yolk
150g white sugar
500g mascarpone
1 vanilla stick
Half cup of coconut rum
Half cup of espresso
A few slices of ladyfingers
Cocoa powder


Separate the beans from the stick. Using the Grundig hand mixer at high speed, whisk the egg yolk and sugar together for 3 minutes.

Add in the mascarpone and slowly mix it in. After adding the entire mascarpone, whisk until it turns into a creamy texture for about 5 or 6 minutes.

Mix the rum and espresso in a bowl.

Separate the ladyfingers into two pieces, horizontally. Soak them in a mixture of rum and espresso, and then line the bottom of the dish you chose to start layering for your tiramisu.

Coat the base with mascarpone and continue to layer ladyfingers and mascarpone until the mix is finished.

Finally, pour the cocoa powder on top and leave it in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Enjoy!
