Recipe Card


  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons matcha powder
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • (8 ounce) mascarpone cheese
  • 5/8 heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons amaretto
  • 2/3 cup Vietnamese coffee
  • 12 lady fingers


  • Step 1

    Brew coffee and set aside for the coffee to cool to room temperature.

  • Step 2

    Whisk the egg yolks with sugar and matcha.

  • Step 3

    Heat up the milk in a small sauce pan and add to matcha egg yolk mixture. First, add a small amount of milk to temper the mixture before adding the rest.

  • Step 4

    Add mascarpone cheese to the matcha egg yolk mixture and incorporate. Soften the mascarpone cheese in a small bowl first to make it easier to mix.

  • Step 5

    Whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the matcha mascarpone cheese mixture. Set aside.

  • Step 6

    Add amaretto to the Vietnamese coffee and stir. Set aside.

  • Step 7

    Assemble the tiramisu cups. Dip lady fingers into the coffee and line the bottom of small cups. Add a layer of the matcha mascarpone cream. Repeat the process until each cup is filled to the brim. Dust matcha powder over the top and serve.
