Tiramisù alle fragole

Tiramisu with fresh strawberries: you like tiramisu but you don't look like a sweet cool enough and springy? Try the tiramisu with fresh strawberries and a wet made with strawberry puree. Is’ easy to prepare and will please everyone, big and small. The tiramisu is a sweet beloved spoon, but in hot weather is a bit’ too heavy: the one with strawberries is much more fresh and delicate. And if you want a recipe with strawberries even lighter, try the TIRAMISU’ WITH STRAWBERRIES AND RICOTTA, without eggs and creamy.

In fact, among all DESSERT SPOON Tiramisu is one of the most versatile and easily customizable. I prepare it in so many ways, mostly unconventional, from that LEMON to that OF RICOTTA WITHOUT EGGS. And you find them all among my Recipes TIRAMISU’.

I garnished with a strawberry jelly, but you can simplify everything using only fresh strawberries sliced. Is’ a variation very easy to prepare the Classic Tiramisu, because the cream is the same, except for the Marsala, that I did not use, preferring vanilla. You want to try it? Do it quickly because spring gives way to summer in the blink of an eye and strawberries end quickly. And then, have a look at all my RECIPES WITH STRAWBERRIES, from tarts to Sicilian frost. Have a good day!

600 grams mascarpone

150 grams of egg yolks

240 grams of egg whites

300 grams caster sugar

Bourbon vanilla extract


250 grams of fresh strawberries

4 grams of gelatin (2 sheets)

30-50 grams of sugar depending on the sweetness of strawberries


50 milliliters of mineral water

50 grams of sugar

200 grams of fresh strawberries

30 milliliters of Alkermes

Sponge fingers

fresh strawberries for garnish


For the cream tiramisu: work in a bowl with an electric mixer the reds with 280 grams of sugar until the mixture triples in volume and becomes foamy and whitish. Add the mascarpone, always working with an electric mixer or in a food processor to obtain a homogeneous mixture, then stir in the vanilla and refrigerate. Whip until stiff egg whites and remaining sugar and incorporate them gradually to the egg mixture and mascarpone cheese with a spatula, doing a movement from top to bottom. Cover the cream with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use it.

For the syrup to strawberries: blend fresh strawberries. Pour the water and sugar into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook until the liquid is reduced by half, then add the Alchermes and add the liquid to the strawberry puree. Allow to cool.

For strawberry jelly: put the gelatine in cold water for 15 minutes, blend the strawberries and pass the mixture through a sieve to remove the seeds. Heat a part of puree and add gelatin well squeezed, then embed the strawberries with the jelly to the rest of the compound. Allow to cool.

Slicing fresh strawberries.

Composition of strawberry tiramisu: moisten well the biscuits with Strawberry Syrup and arrange first layer in a baking dish (I recommend a clear Pyrex dish, so that the layers see well), pour a little tiramisu cream over the savoyards. Then cover with fresh strawberries and a little more cream. Make another layer of ladyfingers, cake soaked with strawberries, and continue until all the ingredients are. Arrived at the last layer of cream, pour over Strawberry jelly, now just lukewarm, and put everything in the refrigerator for at least six hours. If you didn't take the jelly but only to garnish with fresh strawberries, keep the tiramisu in the refrigerator and garnish with strawberries cut into pieces just before serving. Bon appétit!

Hi Ada,
how many eggs you are needed more or less to get the dose of the recipe? I want to try this heresy that inspires me a lot!

Ciao Marta, are about seven medium egg yolks. But it is very much, you may also halve. It's a fairly old recipe and you should prepare it in pan in layers like an ordinary tiramisu, It is much easier. Let me know, ADA.

Dear Ada, allow me to yell at you: no liquor is allowed in tiramisu, but only few and essential ingredients: eggs, sugar, Mascarpone, biscuits and coffee.
Extraordinary mixture of arrogance that brings me back to my childhood, divided between Veneto and Piedmont.
The Marsala no and no!! :-(
The strawberries…Oh well by…you step.
But just because we are in season :-)

a hug

Hello Simona! Then, I take the scolding but I confess (don't kill me) that not only am I always tiramisu made with Marsala wine, but my whole family does so and I had many, also in the restaurant, throughout Italy, made with Marsala. To tell you the truth even recipes of several known, most pastry chefs and chefs bring him back among the ingredients. It is true that there has long been a dispute about the original recipe, or rather on the presence or absence in tiramisu liquor. Before you answer that I documented extensively in network and in my book of pastry and I'm coming to Cape… Sometimes there is sometimes no, always in tiny quantities. That being said, will that I'm used so, will that Marsala is Sicilians like the lagoon in Venice, but I like it so much… Thanks for the interest subsidy on strawberries, It's just a little variation. After all I am going to publish a recipe where I even the Sicilian cannoli… :-) I love you too.

Ha ha ha!!
I can't wait to read it!
Then I'll tell you something in your ear.
While we're in the mood for gastronomic heresies…(in a good way), try using pavesini for tiramisu, and instead of coffee uses a good Moscato Asti retainer… over the last layer of cream to amaretti crumble (If you have those of Mombaruzzo respect you forever).
And tell me if not great.
Hello from Piedmont dear Ada! :-)

Ada Parisi June 16, 2015 - 14:45

So sometimes you give yourself to the tiramisu heretic!! I will try your version, I promise. Moscato Asti catch I, for the macaroons I tool. I embrace you, ADA
