For the Amarula cream

  • 4 extra-large egg yolks
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 500 g (1lb) cold mascarpone
  • 1/3 cup Amarula Vanilla Spice

For the cookie layer

  • 400 g (14oz) lady fingers (biscuits/cookies)
  • ¾ cup strong coffee cooled
  • ¼ cup Amarula Vanilla Spice
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder


  • Whip the egg yolks and sugar until white and voluminous.
  • Add the cold mascarpone and Amarula and whip for 2-3 minutes until pale and thick.
  • Combine the coffee and Amarula in a bowl.
  • Dip the lady fingers into the coffee mixture (do not soak as this will result in a very wet Tiramisu) then place a single layer in small glasses or a serving dish of your choice.
  • Top with some of the mascarpone mixture then repeat. Finish with a layer of the cream then dust with unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Place in the fridge and allow to chill for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight before serving.
