Easy Tiramisu Without Raw Eggs
This delicious, no-bake Italian dessert includes pillowy ladyfingers lightly soaked in coffee and coffee liqueur, then spread with a heavenly mascarpone cream and topped with cocoa powder. This easy version is as luscious as traditional tiramisu, but without raw eggs! A non-alcoholic option is also included.
Servings: 6 approximately
- 1 cup strong brewed black coffee at room temperature
- 3 tablespoons coffee liqueur (I use Kahlúa)*
- 1 cup (250ml / 8.5 fl oz) heavy whipping cream
- ¾ cup (150g / 5 ¼ oz) sugar
- 1 cup (250g / 8.8 oz) mascarpone cheese (see substitute idea below)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 24 ladyfingers (savoiardi) (7 oz / 200 g)
- unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting
Mix the coffee with 2 tablespoons of the coffee liqueur.
Quickly dunk the ladyfingers in the coffee mixture and place in the pan.** I fit about 12 cookies in each layer. Don’t soak the ladyfingers too long, though, otherwise they’ll fall apart.
Beat the whipping cream, sugar, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of the coffee liqueur until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes.
Add the mascarpone cheese and mix until combined. Don’t overmix.
Spread half of the mascarpone mixture on top of the first layer of ladyfingers.
Repeat the process with the second layer of ladyfingers and spread the remaining mascarpone mixture on top.
Dust the top with cocoa powder.
Refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours or overnight (the flavors really develop when left overnight). It can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
*If you don’t have any coffee liqueur, you could use cognac/brandy or Amaretto, but it will taste slightly different.
**For a lighter flavor, place the soaked ladyfingers on a paper towel for a few minutes before placing them in the pan.
MASCARPONE CHEESE SUBSTITUTE
Replace the mascarpone cheese with equal amounts of softened cream cheese mixed with 2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt.
FOR A KID-FRIENDLY TIRAMISU
For a non-boozy, kid-friendly alternative, replace the coffee and Kahlúa with hot chocolate or just milk and omit the alcohol from the mascarpone mixture.
Place individual Tiramisu slices in a freezer-safe container. They can be frozen for up to 2 months.
