Tiramisu Semifreddo Recipe

This tiramisu semifreddo can be your perfect choice for the spring-summer season, especially if you are a tiramisu fan or you like coffee desserts. You will need 30 minutes to make it plus several hours to set. It is easy to make, creamy-cold, and refreshing. Here is the recipe:

Servings 12


  • 4 eggs
  • 250 grams’ mascarpone
  • 100 grams’ sugar, divided
  • 250 ml heavy cream
  • 100 ml marsala wine
  • 12 savoiardi or lady fingers
  • 150 ml espresso coffee (prepared, cold)
  • cocoa powder, to decorate



To make the semifreddo:

  • Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites with the sugar until creamy and fluffy.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream, then add mascarpone, marsala wine, and egg yolks and whisk to combine.
  • Fold the cream mixture into the egg and sugar mixture; combine with a spatula.

To arrange the tiramisu semifreddo:

  • Line a rectangle tin with clingfilm. Apply some of the semifreddo mixture into the bottom of the dish and dip 1 biscuit at a time in the espresso. Spread a layer of biscuits in the dish and top with some of the semifreddo. Repeat the procedure.
  • Lightly tap the tin so any air bubbles dissipate. Put in the freezer for 3- 4 hours so it’s half frozen: it needs to be a little soft.
  • Turn out the tiramisu semifreddo onto a serving plate; remove the clingfilm. To decorate, dust with cocoa powder. Slice and serve.
