DIY Matcha Tiramisu Gift

DIY Matcha Tiramisu Gift


I hope everyone had a happy holiday this year! This Christmas has been a busy one for me. Still, I managed to sneak in time to make tiramisu for last minute side gifts. I was able to make a tiramisu using a 9×13 baking dish along with four miniature jam jars, or mason jars.


I made everything the same way that the original recipe called for with the exception of matcha mascarpone filling. This is my first time making tiramisu with alcohol and I must say that the Baileys gave a huge kick in flavour. I love the espresso-matcha combination and I hope you enjoy!


This recipe makes a 9×13 cake.


6 egg yolks
1 cup white sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 pound mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup espresso (room temp)
1/3 cup water (room temp)
50ml coffee liquor (optional, I used Baileys)
2tbs matcha powder (more for dusting)
2 package lady fingers

Procedure for tiramisu:

Mascarpone filling

  1. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together, then pour it into a small saucepan.
  2. Over medium heat, whisk in the milk. Bring it to a boil for 1 minute while stirring constantly. Let it cool, then cover it and let it chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
  3.  Whisk the cream until stiff peaks form.
  4. In another mixing bowl, whisk the egg mixture and matcha powder together. Then mix in the mascarpone.
  5. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone egg mixture until well combined and set aside.

Ladyfingers Preparation

  1. Combine the espresso, water and coffee liquor.
  2. Dip the lady fingers into the espresso and quickly pull the lady finger out. Do not drench the fingers.


  1. Put a layer of dipped lady fingers to form the base.
  2. Then spread a layer of mascarpone filling.
  3. Next dust a layer of matcha powder on top of the layer of mascarpone.
  4. Repeat the layering and the cake is done! Cover and chill the cake overnight.
