  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tbsp matcha green tea powder
  • 4oz white chocolate
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp rum extract
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 7oz mascarpone cheese
  • 1 package ladyfingers


  • Whisker
  • Kitchen spatula
  • Heavy-bottomed pan
  • Small saucepan
  • Mixing bowls


  • First, prepare the white chocolate mixture. In a small, heavy-bottomed pan combine together ¼ cup of the milk and sifted matcha. Vigorously whisk for a couple of minutes to remove all the lumps. Set over low heat and gently bring to a boil.

  • Add the white chocolate and cook until completely melted, whisking constantly. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  • Now, you will have to make the zabaglione for your tiramisu. In a separate saucepan, combine together egg yolks and sugar. Place the saucepan over a pot of boiling water and gently simmer for 7-8 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the rum extract and continue to cook for a couple of minutes more or until the mixture is thick enough to leave a ribbon trail when lifted. Remove from the heat and let it sit at the room temperature for another 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, prepare the whipped cream. In a medium bowl, combine together heavy cream, powdered sugar, and a pinch of salt. Whisk together until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

  • Now, place the mascarpone into a separate bowl and smooth out with a spatula. Add the chocolate mixture and chilled zabaglione. Vigorously mix for 1-2 minutes or until completely combined. Optionally, taste the mixture and add some more sugar, matcha, or a few drops of vanilla extract. Mix well again and set aside.

  • Finally, assemble the tiramisu. Divide half of the cream mixture between two serving glasses (or more depending on the size). Break ladyfingers into 2-3 pieces and dip each piece in the remaining milk. Place dipped pieces over the cream and add the remaining cream mixture. Finish with a couple of ladyfingers and optionally sprinkle with some more matcha powder. Refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours before serving.

Matcha Tiramisu


Matcha green tea is definitely the best addition to some of your favorite dessert recipes. It gives a wonderful green color, a specific flavor, and lots of antioxidants.

This fantastic powder can be transformed into a lovely cup of tea, latte, ice cream, or any other dessert you have in mind.


This time, I have decided to prepare one of my favorites – classic tiramisu with matcha green tea powder. This tiramisu has the creamiest texture you can possibly imagine and truly tastes like a dream.

As for the ladyfingers, I only like to soak them for a moment before adding them to the cream. This way, I can keep a moderate dose of crispiness in otherwise creamy dessert.


Also, the cookie-cream ratio completely depends on you. You can play around for a while until you have discovered a perfect flavor. Have fun!
