Nothing screams summer like spending a nice weekend at a cottage or eating berries,  especially strawberries in my case .

Luckily for me I usually get to enjoy Strawberries twice a year. The first time in Italy, strawberries arrive in late April and early May and in Canada in early July.

How to Clean Strawberries:

  • Leave the stem on the strawberries when washing, it helps the strawberries absorb less water (make sure to never soak the strawberries in water).
  • Place the strawberries in a large colander.
  • Rinse the strawberries under cold water.
  • Moving them gently with your hand to remove any dirt.
  • Pat them dry with a paper towel.

  • 2 cups chopped strawberries (332 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup cold water (118 grams)


  • 1 pasteurized egg*
  • 1 cup mascarpone (225 grams)
  • 1 cup cream whole, heavy or whipping cream, with at least 30% fat content (220 grams)

*The egg can be left out if you wish.


  • To make the strawberry juice: Clean and chop the strawberries into small pieces sprinkle with sugar, place strawberries, lemon juice and water in a blender, blend until smooth, pour into a bowl and set aside.
  • To make the cream mixture: In a medium bowl beat the egg (if using) for approximately 30 seconds then add the sugar, mascarpone and cream, beat on medium until thickened. (approximately 5-10 minutes, you don’t want it to be too thick or too thin, nice and creamy ).
  • Putting it all together: Lady Finger Cookies (approximately 30 or more if needed) 1 baking dish (I used  10 x 7 inch / 26 x 17 cm).
  • In a small bowl add half the strawberry juice to start,(you may have left over strawberry juice, which is great over ice cream or even add a little more sugar and it makes a great drink) dip the lady finger cookies in the juice (turning to coat all the cookie with juice, but don’t leave them submerged in the juice) then arrange cookies on bottom of baking dish and cover with half the cream mixture, cover with the sliced strawberries, repeat cookies for another layer and cover with remaining cream mixture.
  • Refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours or even over night. Top with fresh strawberries before serving.  Enjoy!

    Gorgeous! Like a gateaux. I’d recommend slicing more strawberries for the top. Thanks for the recipe.

      Delicious! Did not add egg, but sifted a small amount of Dutch cocoa on top. My famiky raved over this recipe!

    If a person cannot find pasteurized eggs or feel uncomfortable in using the raw egg, the egg and sugar can be cooked like a zabaglione in a double boiler, cooled and mixed with the mascarpone and whipped cream.

    1. Hi Ines, that actually sounds quite interesting and I think it would work. Let me know if you try it. You can also just leave out the egg if you prefer. Take care.

  3. I see several comments asking about eggs but I don’t see any eggs in this recipe. The recipe I use for classic tiramisu does have eggs though. Are there eggs in this recipe?
    Thanks. Can’t wait to try this recipe.

    1. Hi Diane, I redid this without eggs, because everyone was wondering about raw eggs. I will update the recipe if you wish to use an egg. Thanks.

    1. Hi Jamie, that should be fine, I think the Italian ladyfingers are the correct ones. Although I have never seen different types. So much variety. 🙂 Have a great Sunday.

    1. Hi Frida, sure you can just omit the egg, I do it sometimes and tastes just as good. Hope you enjoy it.

    OMG tiramisu is my favorite dessert ever. And with strawberry season is full effect right now, I am definitely going to be giving your variation a try – and probably eating the entire batch.

  5. This just looks like summer to me – so lucky you are to get to enjoy strawberry season twice! Can’t wait to try this 🙂

  6. 5 stars
    I have never made any tiramisu but I love the stuff. I also love strawberries, summer cottage days, and warm weather; I can’t wait to make this in just a few months! Thank you for the delicious inspiration.

    1. Hi Marie, If you are concerned about using raw eggs I advised using a product called egg replacer, there are now pasteurized eggs available on the market. I hope that helps.

  7. Thanks for linking up to Creative K Kid’s Tasty Tuesdays linky party a week ago! I’m finally pinning my few pins! I’ve pinned it to the Tasty Tuesdays board.

  8. This looks awesome! Thanks for linking up last week to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have pinned it to the Bloggers Brags PInterest Board.
