Why you’ll love my tiramisu cup recipe

  • Gingersnap biscuits – The spiced biscuits add extra spice and texture to this dessert. You can substitute it with traditional ladyfinger biscuits, digestives, or spekulatius.
  • Black tea – For soaking the gingersnap biscuits. You can used a herbal tea such as berry or ginger tea as well.
  • Mascarpone and cream – Make sure to use full-fat versions of both.
  • Maple syrup – The syrup adds a caramel-like flavor and deeper color to the mascarpone cream. You can substitute it with sugar or runny honey as well.
  • Spices – Vanilla and pumpkin spice complement the ginger flavors. Try my Christmas spice mix for a festive twist.


Swap the gingersnap biscuits with traditional ladyfingers for a more authentic taste. You can also use spekulatius or my German gingerbread cookies.

Lighten it up with spiced Greek yogurt instead of the mascarpone and whipped cream layers for a healthy tiramisu.
