The Pineapple Tiramisu is a delicious and easy-to-make dessert: an exotic and summery flavored twist on the classic Italian Tiramisu made with Coffee. This dessert it’s like summer on a spoon: we assure you that the mix of flavors and textures in today’s recipe will leave everyone speechless!
Ladyfinger biscuits are bathed in lime syrup and alternated with layers of mascarpone cream and fresh pineapple chunks. Delicate, sweet, crunchy, soft, fragrant, and just the right amount of sour: this tiramisu is a true sin of gluttony!
The Strawberry Tiramisu, the Lemon Tiramisu and the Pistachio Tiramisu are fantastic fruit-based alternatives to the classic tiramisu that we definitely recommend you make. Today, however, it’s time to try our Pineapple Tiramisu Recipe!
To make the Pineapple Tiramisu begin by making the mascarpone cream: mix the egg yolks with the sugar in a bowl using an electric beater until frothy, add the mascarpone mixing it well and whip the cream separately.
When it is ready, add the whipped cream to the custard mixing it carefully, whip the egg whites to stiff peaks and add them too, incorporating them using a pastry spatula and making movements from the bottom to the top: let the mascarpone custard rest in the refrigerator covered with clingfilm for an hour.
Then heat the water in a saucepan, add the sugar, stir it with a wooden spoon so that it dissolves and, when it has reached boiling point, pour in the juice of two limes. Transfer the resulting syrup to a bowl and let it cool: once ready, dip the ladyfingers inside and arrange them in a glass baking dish, thus creating the first layer.
Top with mascarpone cream, add small pineapple chunks and continue with another layer of ladyfingers, repeating this until you have finished all the ingredients. Decorate the surface with pineapple cubes and let your Pineapple Tiramisu rest in the refrigerator for at least three hours before serving.
