Easy Tiramisu Recipe (Eggless)

Jump to Recipe Jump to Video

Tiramisu is an Italian dessert made with layers of Mascarpone cream cheese and soft fluffy ladyfinger biscuits that is dipped in espresso & coffee liqueur. This turned out to be not as hard as I thought it would be . You can consider this as an adult’s Tiramisu recipe with the addition of coffee and liqueur! If you like coffee desserts, dont forget to check out Coffee Bean Cookies.

You can go for an easier route by going for store-bought ladyfinger biscuits, which are basically just small sponge cakes. However, if you want to make everything from scratch like me, you have the recipe for that as well! Trust me when I say that the hardest part would be the overnight wait while the tiramisu chills in the refrigerator.

Bit more about Tiramisu

Tiramisu is originally from the city of Veneto, Italy. There’s some debate about this, that the dessert might have been from the city of Treviso in Italy. Honestly, I’m just glad it exists and thanks to the person who crafted this delicious creamy piece of art, sometime in the early 1800s. If you want to know more about the origins of this dessert, check it out here.

So this is going to be a recipe that’s survived through the tides of time with little tweaks of adding coffee liqueur into it, which is an optional ingredient. With the espresso soaked ladyfingers and the sugar combined with the mascarpone cream cheese, it validates the meaning of the word Tiramisu which means ‘Pick me up’ in Italian.

I can’t recall when or where I had my first Tiramisu. I want to say maybe the Bellagio, in Las Vegas. All I remember is what I felt when I took the first bite. Creamy and soft. The kick of coffee and hint of cocoa just blew my mind. I’m so happy that I could share this eggless tiramisu recipe with you guys! Enjoy!

  • Dip your fingers in cold water and shape the edges of the ladyfinger batter. It might be difficult to get the right shape and length at first but as you do a few, it gets easier. You can see from my work that even I messed up the initial few!

Assembly

  • Take an 8 x 8 inch container, about 2 to 3 inches deep.
  • Dip the ladyfinger biscuits in the coffee mix for about 2 to 3 seconds. Don’t soak for too long as the biscuits might get soggy.
  • Arrange the biscuits in the container as the first layer.
  • Add in half of the mascarpone cream cheese filling on top of this layer and spread it evenly.
  • Add the remaining ladyfinger biscuits as next layer.
  • Top it off with the rest of the mascarpone filling and spread it out evenly.
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
  • Dust with cocoa powder before serving.
