Creamy and delicious Raspberry Tiramisù made with De Nigris Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother

Ingredients for 4 People

  • 1.7 cups water ​
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries, plus extra for decoration ​
  • 5.6 oz. granulated sugar ​
  • 4 medium size eggs ​
  • 2 oz. granulated sugar (for the egg cream) ​
  • 2 ¼ cups mascarpone cheese ​
  • 2 tbsp De Nigris Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother ​
  • 300g (about 30) Savoiardi Ladyfingers ​

For the recipe


Mix the water with the sugar in a small saucepan, heat until simmering, and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes, then leave to cool down. 

Wash and place the raspberries in a bowl, add the De Nigris Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother and the cooled sugar syrup, and set it aside to soften for between 20 minutes and an hour. 

Tip 1. You can also add a tablespoon of raspberry liquor or limoncello if you would like to add a boozy kick to the tiramisú

In the meantime, prepare the creamy component: separate the eggs and place the yolks and white in separate bowls. Add the granulated sugar to the egg yolks and beat with an electric whisk until pale, creamy and doubled in volume. 

Now whisk the egg whites in the other bowl with the electric whisk until stiff peaks form. Combine the whisked egg white with the egg yolk mixture by adding one third of the whites at the time and folding them gently with a wooden spoon or a spatula, mixing from the bottom to the top. ​​

Once fully mixed, add the mascarpone. Begin mixing by folding in with a spoon and then finish with a whisk until completely combined and creamy. 

Tip 2: usually the mascarpone is added to the egg yolk mix before adding whipped egg whites, but chefs often prefer to add the mascarpone last, because this results in a much more stable and aerated cream. 

TIP 3: take the mascarpone out from the fridge 30 minutes before using it so it’s easier to mix it with the egg and sugar mixture. 

Strain the syrup from the raspberries into a wide bowl and set aside the softened berries in a separate bowl. 

Start building the tiramisú in ramekins, starting with a layer of cream mix, followed by a layer of Savoiardi half dipped in the syrup (dip them for about three seconds each on the plain, non-sugary side), then a layer of softened raspberries, and repeat the layers until the ramekins are full, ending with a cream layer.

Decorate the tiramisú with fresh raspberries, and refrigerate for at least two hours, (and preferably overnight) to allow them to set, before serving.
