Green Tea Tiramisu
October 29th, 2009 by sovicki


  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 16 oz (room temp) Mascarpone cheese
  • 2 cups brewed strong green tea, cooled (the Japanese Green Tea from Costco works well for this)
  • 1/2 pint heavy cream
  • 1 package Crunchy Lady fingers
  • 3 tbsp green tea liquor (optional)


  1. Combine 4 egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and whisk over a pot of simmering water to create a double boiler. Whisk until mixture reaches the ribbon stage WITHOUT making scrambled eggs.
  2. Whisk or beat heavy cream until very thick and stiff, set aside.
  3. Whisk or beat the egg whites until you have semi-stiff peaks, set aside.
  4. Whisk Mascarpone cheese and heavy cream into egg and sugar mixture until well combined. Slowly fold in the egg whites to create an airy mixture, set aside.
  5. Add green tea liquor to the strong cooled green tea then carefully and quickly soak each lady finger then arrange one layer in your serving dish. Note: don’t soak it for too long
  6. Top with some of the cream mixture. Add second layer of lady fingers, top with more cream mixture.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours before serving. Preferably overnight.
  8. Dust with powdered green tea just before serving. (Green tea powder will change color when it soak up the moisture from the cream)

This makes 2 8X8 baking dish.
