This lemon tiramisu recipe is one that I save for when Mom comes to town each spring. It’s not one of my 3-ingredient recipes that I love to throw together when I’m craving something sweet, nor is it one of the things I make when I’m feeling down and need something to cheer me up. No, this tiramisu recipe takes a bit of effort and needs plenty of refrigerator time before I can even consider putting it on the table.

But it’s worth it. It’s both tart and sweet, creamy and luscious. And it’s perfect for springtime.

I start by making my own lemon curd. It’s possible to cut corners here and buy some lemon curd from the store, but in my opinion this is when you don’t want to go there. You know I’m all about shortcuts, but really only when they make sense and won’t impact the quality of a dish. Homemade lemon curd is just sooo much better than store-bought, so do yourself a favor and take the extra step. I have two recipes for lemon curd; one will guarantee you’ll turn out a curd that’s silky and smooth, the other is almost as good but you’ll save some time by making it in the microwave.

I love to serve this tiramisu recipe in mini-dishes; here I’ve used mini trifles, but any mini dish would do. It’s gorgeous – the photos really don’t do it justice – and the clean, fresh flavors are what make it my favorite springtime dessert recipe. Be sure to get some bright, fresh berries or fresh mint leaves to use for a garnish.

    I love anything yellow and anything lemon! I also love marscarpone cheese in desserts. I will definitely need to try this. Mmmm…!

    Is there any way that I could make this without the alcohol? I’m pregnant and I would like to make these. Any good substitutes?

    Does the egg mixture need to be cooked at all? In a double broiler maybe? I just want to make sure I’m not missing something here.

      Hi Whitney, Traditional tiramisu does contain raw eggs. If you’re concerned about this you can certainly cook the eggs in a double boiler although it will change the consistency of the final dish. But definitely do whatever you’re most comfortable with!
