A matcha spin on a beloved Italian dessert. Once you’ve tried matcha tiramisu, there’s no going back. 

It’s light but decadent, and utterly delicious with sweet and umami matcha flavours. If you’re not much of a baker, this is the dessert for you - no oven required and comes together very quickly!




Matcha syrup

Vanilla mascarpone cream

  • 100g sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 500g mascarpone cheese
  • 40g whipping cream
  • 10g vanilla bean paste 

  • 300g lady finger biscuits 


  • Matcha whisk 
  • Hand mixer or stand mixer 
  • Baking dish or tray
  • Sieve 

  1. Using a stand mixer or handheld mixer, whisk your whipping cream and vanilla bean paste until thickened. 
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk your egg yolks and 100g of sugar until light (in colour and texture) and almost fluffy. 
  3. Add your mascarpone to your egg mixture and continue to mix until combined. 
  4. Fold in your whipped cream and mix by hand until smooth. 
  5. Make your matcha syrup: whisk your matcha and water together until clump-free, add in your sugar and keep whisking until sugar is dissolved. 
  6. Start assembling your tiramisu by dipping your lady fingers into the matcha syrup and lining the bottom of your baking dish with them. 
  7. Cover with your mascarpone cream and repeat 1-2 more times, ending with a layer of the cream. 
  8. Using a sieve, dust the top of your tiramisu with matcha powder. 
  9. Place in the fridge and chill for a couple of hours or overnight before serving.
