Easy Tiramisu

This weekend I was looking through my website and the posts on there and realised that I had never shared my tiramisu recipe. To be honest, I thought it would have been one of the first I would share. But that is ok, I was back home with my parents in Bahrain for Christmas. It is one of those desserts that they LOVE so it worked out perfectly.

My tiramisu recipe is different to other recipes. It isn’t exactly the traditional recipe, but it certainly is quick and easy and you don’t need to stand there and temper eggs for ages. Instead, this tiramisu is light and creamy. Once you have eaten it, you won’t feel heavy or like you have had too much coffee. Another thing, which I don’t understand about normal tiramisu is that there is alcohol in it. I don’t use alcohol in my recipes, and think that children shouldn’t be around it. No matter how small the amount. So no alcohol in the recipe.

Preparation Time 10 minutes 

Chill Time 3-4 hours 

Serves 10-12 


3 cups whipping cream- cold

1 cup sugar 

2 teaspoons vanilla 

450 grams mascarpone cheese- cold

3 cups brewed coffee- cold 

2 packages lady fingers ,Savoiardi brand can be found in the cookie aisle at your local grocery store, or online

Cocoa powder- for dusting the top


  1. Begin by beating the heavy cream on a medium speed. As it beats, slowly add the sugar and vanilla. Beat the cream until stiff peaks form. 

  2. Add the mascarpone cheese in 2 additions. Mix one part well before adding the other. But do not over mix the mixture, because it will split! 

  3. Dip both sides of the lady fingers (but do not soak) in the coffee, then arrange them in a 9x 13 inch rectangular pyrex dish. 

  4. Smooth half the mascarpone mixture over the lady fingers. Then repeat the layers again. 

  5. Chill the tiramisu in the fridge for 3-4 hours or better yet, overnight. 

  6. Dust the tiramisu with cocoa powder just before serving.
