This delicious and unbelievably easy Tiramisu recipe is made with coffee soaked lady fingers, sweet and creamy mascarpone (no raw eggs!), and cocoa powder dusted on top. It requires no baking and can be made in advance!

Who doesn’t love an easy no-bake dessert?  That’s one of the best things about this tiramisu recipe.  If you are looking quick no-bake dessert I also love No Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars and Butterscotch Cereal Bars.

This recipe has been a long time coming, and I’m embarrassed to admit how much tiramisu has been made in the trial of this recipe (I literally bought out every package of Savoiardi lady fingers at two different stores!) but I wanted to nail down the right approach.

By “right approach”, I mean how traditional of a tiramisu recipe I wanted to share. (In case you’re not familiar with it, Tiramisu is a popular Italian dessert made with lady fingers (or spongecake), coffee, liqueur, and mascarpone cheese topped with chocolate powder). Should I make the lady fingers from scratch? Does it matter? And more importantly, do I make it with raw eggs?

What makes my recipe different:

My tiramisu does not use raw eggs. It’s the easiest tiramisu recipe to make, and there’s no sacrifice in flavor.

Traditional tiramisu uses raw egg yolks and sugar beaten and then combined with raw whipped egg whites and mascarpone. I’ve tried that method, but thought people would most likely be turned off by the raw eggs.

Then I tried using a double boiler to gently cook the eggs and sugar before adding them to the mascarpone, which is a really common method used in lots of modern recipes (the Pioneer Woman has a great recipe!). I found it tricky to get the thick and creamy mascarpone layer I wanted.

So, I ultimately decided to swap out the egg whites in favor of fresh whipped cream, because I like the flavor and texture more. The result is delicious and EASY! You’re going to love it!A clear glass pan of tiramisu with two slices removed from the center.

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • Ladyfingers: I buy them, but you could make them from scratch.
  • Mascarpone: it wouldn’t be true tiramisu without mascarpone, but if you absolutely must, you could substitute cream cheese.
  • Coffee: I use espresso
  • Heavy Whipped cream
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Vanilla extract: or substitute imitation vanilla
  • Cocoa powder: for dusting on top

The ingredients needed for tiramisu including ladyfingers, espresso, mascarpone, cocoa powder, cream, vanilla and sugar.

How to make Tiramisu:

  • Mix creamy filling. Beat the mascarpone, cream, sugar, and vanilla together until stiff peaks.
  • Dip lady fingers. Add the espresso and liqueur (if using) to a shallow bowl and dip the lady fingers on both sides (don’t let them soak–just a quick dip!)
  • Layer mascarpone. Smooth a layer of the mascarpone/whipped cream mixture on top of the lady fingers.
  • Repeat. Add another layer of lady fingers (dipped in coffee and liqueur) and another layer of cheese mixture. Dust with cocoa powder.

Process photos for layering tiramisu including dipping ladyfingers in espresso, layering a dish, adding mascarpone cream, layering again and topping with cocoa powder.

What kind of alcohol is used in tiramisu?

Tiramisu can be made with or without alcohol. This recipe calls for coffee flavored liqueur because I like that it enhances the coffee flavor.

Alcohol free: Leave it out completely.

Alcohol variations: use dark rum, brandy, marsala wine.

Espresso substitutions:  coffee, decaf


Tiramisu is even better when made in advance, allowing the flavors to blend! It will keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

To freeze, make completely, but don’t dust with cocoa powder. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and then tinfoil and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and dust with cocoa powder a few hours before serving.

Save Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounce container mascarpone cheese ,room temperature
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups cold espresso
  • 3 Tablespoons coffee flavored liqueur ,optional (Kahlua or DaVinci brands)
  • 1 package Lady Fingers ,Savoiardi brand can be found in the cookie aisle at your local grocery store, or online
  • Cocoa powder for dusting the top


  • Add whipping cream to a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed with electric mixers (or use a stand mixer). Slowly add sugar and vanilla and continue to beat until stiff peaks. Add mascarpone cheese and mix just until combined. Set aside.
  • Add coffee and liqueur to a shallow bowl. Dip the lady fingers in the coffee (Don't soak them--just quickly dip them on both sides to get them wet) and lay them in a single layer on the bottom of an 8x8'' or similar size pan. 
  • Smooth half of the mascarpone mixture over the top. Add another layer of dipped lady fingers. Smooth remaining mascarpone cream over the top.
  • Dust cocoa powder generously over the top (I use a fine mesh strainer to do this). Refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours or up to overnight before serving.


Alcohol: Tiramisu can be made with or without alcohol. This recipe calls for coffee flavored liqueur because I like that it enhances the coffee flavor, but other options are marsala wine or brandy.

  1. I couldn’t find lady fingers so I used Nilla wafers. For the liqueur addition to the coffee, I had RumChata, so I used that. For my little twist, I added some shaved chocolate to the heavy whipping cream. Each component was amazing but where I think I fell short was I used a single layer of Nilla wafers for each layer and looking back I should have done double layers because my dessert was pretty thin. It tasted great but everyone wanted a little more. I did make it the day before and that was definitely a plus. This recipe was a win regardless, for our Italian theme!

  2. 5 stars
    My fiance made this recipe to take for a potluck and everyone absolutely loved it. There was not a spoonful left. My fiance wanted to line the pan he used around the edges as well as in the middle, so he used two packs of lady fingers. He used a springform pan so when it came to presenting the final dessert, he took the outside spring part off and the dessert held up perfectly!

  3. 4 stars
    This recipe is so simple and easy! I made it for my dad’s birthday. My mom and I are going to make it again this weekend but double the vanilla, and we think Amaretto would be a fun flavor instead of Kahlua (we love both). I’m also going to try subbing low-fat cream cheese to make it more budget and waistline-friendly. I’ll let you know how the adaptations work out! Also, I made it the night before and it was even better the day after, like you said! So yummy! Thanks for a great recipe!

  4. 5 stars
    So delicious. My husbands favorite dessert is tiramisu and instead of getting it at a bakery or grocery store I thought I’d try to make it at home. He absolutely loved this recipe! I’ve made it multiple times now and will make again and again. The recipe is super easy to follow and put together.

  5. Fantastic recipe, I didn’t think i’d like this recipe because I like the egg version, but I was wrong!

    The changes I made:
    250g cream cheese (instead of mascarpone)
    307g regular cream and 50g butter (if you don’t have heavy cream)
    ONLY 1/4 c sugar otherwise too sweet

    I melted the butter and sugar together and added this to the room temp cream cheese then use electric mixer.

  6. 5 stars
    Made some previously from another recipe and it was so large we were sick of it before we could finish it. This recipe was really good and easy! Just enough.

  7. 3 stars
    Easy recipe to follow and make but too sweet for my liking, and I used a strong espresso. The sweetness of the cream did not balance out this dessert! Will try again but will definitely cut the amount of sugar. To each their own I guess. Thanks for sharing!

  8. 5 stars
    I really wanted a quick way to use up the ingredients I had, but if you’re a die-hard tiramisu fan, the whip cream method simply doesn’t compare with the more custard style texture of the egg method. Still, an ok substitute.

  9. I am coming up with a 7 course menu to share with a group of 50 or so for a book signing (a novel). Would it be possible to share this recipe with the group? If yes, how would you want to be credited? Thank you!

    1. Hi Debbie–thanks for asking! Yes, you can print it from my website, which will include my website information when you print it out. Thanks!

  10. 5 stars
    This recipe is a keeper! Have made it a bunch of times over the years for friends and family and everyone has loved it. I’ve used coffee liqueur, brandy, and rum—with the latter two being my favorites as I think they make the flavor more interesting. This is just as good, maybe even better, than some tiramisus I’ve had in Italy.

  11. I don’t understand.
    The website is called Tastes Better From Scratch, yet, the recipe uses store bought lady fingers?!?

    1. I don’t have my ladyfingers recipe published on the website yet, but hope to soon! (And i’ll still leave the store-bought option for the majority of people who will want it).

    2. This is like saying “the website is called tastes better from scratch but you didn’t milk your own cow and roast your own coffee beans” It’s an ingredient, dude.

  12. 5 stars
    Really enjoyed this recipe, first time making Tiramisu, and this recipe was very easy to make, I did have to substitute the mascarpone with cream cheese, and I didn’t use the liqueur. But it still turned out amazing.

  13. Some truly nice and useful info on this website, besides I think the design has got fantastic features.

  14. Absolutely delicious. Did not miss the eggs. Easy to make and perfect consistency. I substituted Schar gluten free ladyfingers and substituted the sugar for monk fruit/erythritol sugar substitute – worked great.

  15. 4 stars
    Great, easy to follow instructions. You’ll need more than one package of lady fingers if your package is 3 ounces like mine was. You’ll need at least 6 ounces or there aren’t nearly enough!

    1. Mine was the same. I got really upset. I watched the video then and you probably made same mistake as I did by adding cheese to the cream and mixing it with an electric mixer instead of just doing it with a spoon 🙁

      1. I mixed the mascarpone in with the heavy cream using a electric mixture and had no issue with extra water. I whipped the heavy cream well before adding and added the mascarpone in a few spoonfuls at a time.

  16. what other cookie could i use as an alternative? I am going to try this soon and the Lady Fingers are too expensive.

    1. I used Nilla Wafers! I used one layer of Nilla wafers per layer, and I wish I would have used 2 layers of cookies per layer as my dessert was thin. It tasted really good though, just slight.

  17. 5 stars
    Lauren, this is best homemade tiramisu I have ever tried to make. My guests thought so too. My only variant from you recipe, was that I added a layer of whipped cream on the top and then dusted with cocoa powder. This dessert is light, fluffy and flavorful! Thank you so much for sharing.

  18. 5 stars
    Great recipe. I am one of those people who are afraid to use raw egg. I’ve tasted numerous tiramisu, can’t really distinguish which is made with egg. I like that I can make this without egg-handling. It’s really good.

  19. 1 star
    hershey’s coco? no egg? store bought cake? how the hell did did get any stars at all.
    just go buy a storebought one if you are dis desperate.

    1. Mike Calvin, what recipe are you reading? This is tiramisu made with Lady fingers not tiramisu cake. Which, by the way, I’ve made the cake with a cake mix and it’s always a big hit.

      Also… There are more decent ways to be critical. Remember not all people looking at online recipes are pro’s such as yourself. A cake mix sends them on their way to confidence in trying a full cake recipe.
      As long as no one ask “how the hell” they made it.

    2. Mike Calvin, you are so rude. This recipe is clearly said it’s for people who don’t want raw egg and a quick recipe. If you want to make everything from scratch, go bake your own lady fingers. What is there to be so snarky for?

  20. 3 stars
    This was definitely easy, but not the same as with an egg based sabayon custard. Lost some of the mascarpone flavor in the cream. I prefer the lightness of the egg whites.
    I usually cut down on sugar in recipes but found this one needs more.

    But if you want easy, this is certainly a drastic improvement in time commitment.

  21. 5 stars
    Easy. Thanks, made at 10:30 cold night to have ready for tomorrow..had all ingredients … looking forward to tasting

  22. I made this! I used 3/4 cups of both heavy whipping cream and mascarpone (and thus reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup) and that was plenty for me. I added the cream, sugar, and vanilla first and just beat it till it was combined and the cream was halfway whipped. Then I added the 3/4 cup of mascarpone and whipped until stiff peaks formed. I had 12 ladyfingers in one pack. I also didn’t fill up a bowl with the espresso (didn’t want to waste any), I just poured a bit in a shallow plate and spooned some onto the ladyfingers till everything was covered. I chilled the tiramisu for 3-4 hrs., and I will say that this is the most authentic tiramisu I’ve had! I made it for my brother’s birthday and it was a hit.

  23. 5 stars
    Great recipe! Used Sonoma Syrup Co. vanilla hazelnut simple syrup to flavor the espresso and left out the alcohol. Delicious.

  24. 5 stars
    Very easy and goes together quickly for the chill time. The was not a bit let on any plate. This is a keeper.

  25. 5 stars
    I haven’t even eaten it yet but everything went great and tasted good in its parts. I used Bourbon because I live in Kentucky! And cacao liquor with espresso! That tasted good. The marscopone and cream was awesome! It will be a nice treat at Italian themed NYE gathering of triple vaccinated family! Only 7 people so I made the original size! Fit great in Staub 9×6 ! Looks amazing and so easy! Left over coffee mix I made into a small iced coffee! Yum! This is a keeper!! Thanks Lauren!

    1. Ohhhh, making one for work and now one for home. Gonna soak those ladies in that bourbon! Thank you for the idea. My husband will love that!

  26. 5 stars
    This was incredibly delicious and very easy to make at home! I didn’t have coffee liqueur, only made half the amount of espresso and it was still fantastic! Thank you for this recipe Lauren!

  27. Thewhipped cream marscapone takes deliious. I will assume the finished product will also.
    Thanks for the easy recipe, don’t like making Sabayon.

  28. This is such an easy recipe and it is now my go-to recipe when entertaining. It freezes so well, which means I can make it well before any event.

  29. 5 stars
    Hi Lauren – I’m really looking forward to making your Tiramisu. Sounds delicious and I love the fact that it’s easy to put together. Two questions though: (1) does the Marscapone get beaten into the whipping cream with the whisk attachment used to beat cream? and (2) should doubling the recipe make enough for a 9×13 pan? Thanks for your input.

    1. 5 stars
      This is the second time I’ve made this recipe. It is so good. To answer Anne’s first question, I did beat the marscapone with the whipped cream. It worked perfectly.

  30. I am planning on making this for Christmas and decided to give it a test run before serving it to guests. I followed the recipe pretty much exactly. The only change was that I found I needed more than one package of ladyfingers for my 8×8 dish (companies make different size ladyfingers, so it’s safe to buy more than what you think you might need). Also, I used room temperature decaf coffee and Frangelico hazelnut liquor instead of coffee flavored liquor.

    It turned out pretty good! Smooth, light, not too sweet, you can taste the coffee but it’s not overwhelming. It setted well too. I don’t think I will make any changes. It was surprisingly easy and fun to make. In the future, I will try to make a gluten and dairy free version using Schar ladyfingers and coconut whipping cream! Thanks for the recipe!

  31. Planning on making this for an Italian dinner party tomorrow. Any recommendations on what store-bought cold espresso to use? Thanks!

  32. 5 stars
    Thank you so much for putting this recipe out there for people to enjoy!!! So easy, not many ingredients and the taste is phenomenal!! Don’t be afraid to put lots of cocoa on top! Had Italian for thanksgiving and everyone loved the dessert ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  33. 5 stars
    Just made this a second time and it’s the fridge settling as we speak. So good, and so easy, better than store bought! I added a little extra sugar this time and another tsp of vanilla, since I had no kaluha or amaretto. Tasted amazing on the spoon!

  34. 5 stars
    Made this easy recipe for tiramisu last nite and served it today! It was a huge hit with my husband who doesn’t normally like anything ‘coffee’. The texture is creamy and smooth and the taste and flavor of everything melded together is simply delicious without being too overly sweet. For those that might be hesitant to try this — you have to make it — I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Thank you for sharing this great recipe. I am glad I made it!

  35. 5 stars
    This is AMAZING! So simple and easy. It doesn’t take a master chef to make this. Ingredients are easy to work with. She is 100% correct in saying that this recipe is much more simple than the traditional tiramisu recipe, but without sacrificing flavor. It’s delicious and refreshing. Tastes extremely similar to any tiramisu I’ve ever had in any restaurant!

  36. Can I can use Cuban coffee for the espresso? If so, should I keep or omit the sugar that is normally added to Cuban coffee?

  37. Damn !! this recipe was relatively easy. Don’t oversoak your lady fingers. I did. Learned from my mistake. Easy and delish !!

  38. 5 stars
    Thanks for sharing. My Husband cannot get enough of this. In the last two weeks I have made it twice. This recipe is very easy.

  39. 5 stars
    I made this for my daughter’s birthday and she and my 4 and 6 year old grandkids loved it. She said it’s better than the one at a popular Italian chain restaurant! Very easy to make and firmed up nicely in the fridge overnight. Will definitely go on my go-to list of desserts!

  40. 5 stars
    That should’ve been five stars not three stars this has been the best one so far that I have tried I did add a little bit of Kahlúa and rum extract just to give it a little kick it so far kudos to you you did a very good job not using raw eggs

  41. 5 stars
    Delicious!!! Tiramisu is my husband’s favorite dessert and he’s very particular about its quality and flavor so I was hesitant to try to make it for him for Father’s Day but decided to give it a try. Our kids (4 & 6) and I made this recipe and I found it ridiculously easy to make. They did most of the work actually. Needless to say, my husband loved it and says it’s better than the one from our favorite restaurant. Now he wants it for his upcoming birthday instead of the traditional birthday cake. Thanks for sharing!

      1. 5 stars
        I have used Cool Whip with excellent results. If you have no objections to Dairy, I recommend the “Extra Creamy” variety. I always make this gluten fee by using Schar brand Gluten Free Ladyfingers.

  42. 5 stars
    So delicious! I added some rum extract and I used butter cake instead of lady fingers and I hope it will be as yummy as it looks!

  43. What can you use instead of alcohol liquor? Is there a non alcohol option or should I just omit it?

    Thank you

  44. I make this for special occasions in my family for a anniversary or a big birthday. I make this for my wedding anniversary every year. My family absolutely loves this tiramisu.

  45. 5 stars
    Delicious & easy! I would have bought tiramisu, but wanted it decaffeinated. Now I’ll make this a lot! I would like to know whether the calorific value of 383kcal is per 100g or per portion (what size) or per 1/8 of recipe. I can’t find this information on your website.
    Thank you very much, what a brilliant recipe!

  46. My daughter loves tiramisu so I made this for her “birthday cake”. It was a hit. Will definitely make again. Maybe add a bit more Kahlua.

  47. I tripled the recipe and made three layers in my mom’s giant cut glass punch bowl: one quart cream, 24 ounces of marscapone and 78 lady fingers. It was fabulous and the only birthday “cake” I ever got high on.

  48. 5 stars
    Correcting my rating to a 5 star. The measurement information did not show up for me until after I left my previous rating. This is definitely a great recipe!

  49. Next time I may only use 1 cup whipping cream. I love whipped cream but it was a little much even for me. Other than that, easy and delish.

  50. 5 stars
    Oh, delicious, rich, creamy and boozy. Added a bit extra coffee liqueur but decreased sugar by a bit. Great recipe will make it again.

  51. 5 stars
    This is exactly the way I’ve always it and it is fabulous! Eliminating the eggs does not make it any less decadent!

    I just had some it was so good but want the reciipe to stay on my phone I live on New Bern, N.C. 28562Linfa

  53. 4 stars
    Super easy recipe, but you need to soak the ladyfingers longer or the tiramisu tastes more like a cake.

  54. 4 stars
    Easy to make but it calls for way too much espresso! I had at least half left over after dipping the ladyfingers anyway can’t wait to dig into it, it’s chilling in the refrigerator as we speak

  55. 5 stars
    This was my first attempt ever at Tirimisu. Your recipe is perfect. I doubled everything for a 9 x 13 pan and had just the exact amount of cream, espresso, and cookies + 2 for my enjoyment. Serving tonight for my daughter’s birthday. I know it will be a hit. Thanks

  56. 5 stars
    Everyone in my house loved it. It was super easy to make. We are gluten free so I just GF ladyfingers. Absolutely will be making again.

  57. 4 stars
    This is an easy and delicious recipe BUT..
    I sure wish people would be more accurate on the prep time. This took me about 20-25 minutes total time to get everything together, mix together and put together. So, this won’t be done in 10 minutes!

  58. 5 stars
    I made this two days ago. It was delicious! Everyone loved it. And it was extremely easy to make (I used strong decaf coffee and Kahlua). Thanks for the recipe! It’s a keeper!!

  59. 5 stars
    A new family favorite!!! This is going in my five star recipe file!. Flavorful but light and not too filling. We made it with just a dusting of cocoa powder and added bittersweet chocolate shavings and a chocolate covered espresso bean on top. OH MY GOD GOOD! It was even better the second day! (And I don’t like coffee or espresso!)

  60. 2 stars
    I think my two stars is less about the quality of the recipe and more about my new realization that tiramisu just doesn’t do it for me. There was nothing about this that I enjoyed. It was easy and I wanted to like it, but I doubt I’ll ever be a fan.

    1. I think this is unfair, if you don’t like tiramisu hit two stars on your own taste, don’t damage her rating because of your personal reasons…

    2. 5 stars
      Why would you rate the recipe if you don’t like tiramisu? That has nothing to do with the recipe. Completely irrelevant and stupid to rate it in the first place.

  61. 5 stars
    Super yummy and easy to make! I added a shot of rum to theKahlua. My husband never compliments my cooking( he’s a man of few wordsJ…He said it was excellent!!!

  62. 5 stars
    Thanks, Lauren for sharing the wonderful Tiramisu recipe. We made it on Christmas day (my 12 year old made it). It was that simple. We don’t consume eggs and hence this recipe was perfect. I didn’t had espresso coffee, so we just made a strong batch of Nescafe black coffee and used that for dipping the ladyfingers.
    This recipe is a keeper in our household now.

  63. 5 stars
    Amazingly easy, quick, and delicious….a hit with the family. I used confectioners sugar and instant espresso coffee and no alcohol. Thanks for the recipe!

  64. I’ve made this several times, I’m making it for Christmas (my Son in-laws request) I use amaretto, and I use mascarpone Excellent!!!!!!

  65. I am making a seven fish mini feast fir Christmas Eve and I can’t wait to try this tiramisu recipe! I know it will be fabulous because your other recipes have worked out amazingly!!! You have my complete trust! Thank you for sharing.

  66. My local store never had lady fingers so I substitute with slices of angel food cake and I lightly brush them with coffee. It turns out delicious!

  67. 5 stars
    My first time making tiramisu a d this recipe made it easy and fun. The end product was delicious. This will definitely be my go to dessert. Thank you!

  68. 5 stars
    I’ve made this several times for my daughter who is gluten intolerant. I found gluten free Lady Fingers at our local grocery store and I replace regular sugar with coconut sugar. It’s her favorite dessert! She would rather have this dessert for Thanksgiving than pumpkin pie! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  69. Can you use powdered sugar instead of regular sugar? I find it keeps the whip cream from getting runny in other recipes.



  70. 5 stars
    I have made this several times, and it if fabulous. I use Kahlua plus the coffee to dip the lady fingers. It is my husband favorite.

    I couldn’t find lady fingers in my neighborhood.I kept thinking what else I could use and 2 days later TADDA , Stella D’oro margherite fingers and following your recipe I had my delicious tiramisu.Thank you.

  72. 5 stars
    This is a great and easy recipe. Like the whipped cream instead of the traditional egg mixture. I did add a couple tablespoons of rum to the coffee mix for the added flavor but not needed. I’ve tried this recipe with a cream cheese substitute for the mascarpone. Found the substitute okay but a bit more “cheesecake” like.

  73. 5 stars
    Awesome recipe! Written down in my recipe journal already.
    I’m making this for my girlfriend…
    Thank you so much!

  74. I can’t wait to make this. Grateful to have found a recipe not using raw eggs, simply because I can’t seem to make a decent meringue!!

  75. 5 stars
    The simplest tiramisu recipe I have ever tried AND I have tried many.
    Made this twice in the past 3 weeks with Grand Marnier… perfect both times!

    Was a hit with our guests. Easy recipe to follow and the outcome was delicious. I used Tia Maria liquor in my dessert and it turned out really good. Thank you for sharing. Will definitely be using this again

  77. 5 stars
    Very delicious!!!! Easy to follow recipe and turned out great. It had the right amount of sweetness and texture to it. Served it to my family and friends and received a lot of compliments:-)

  78. 5 stars
    Excellent recipe. I used coffee liquor. This recipe was easy and the taste was wonderful. I will soak the lady fingers just a little more. The ladyfingers were a little hard. Best recipe!!

  79. Turned out great! Thank you for the recipe. I did not have expresso and so I just used brewed coffee. So easy and delicious.

  80. Having trouble finding ladyfingers right now. Can you use Sfogliatine glazed puff instead? They look similar. But I’m not sure if it will affect the recipe.

  81. 5 stars
    Sounds like a great and easy pudding. Thank you. Especially like the idea of freezing it for later!

  82. Could you possibly convert this to UK measurements for me, want to try it but worried it might go wrong if I don’t convert the amounts properly.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

  83. 5 stars
    My boyfriend loves tiramisu so I decided to make it for his family. Stumbled upon this quick and easy recipe and it was a hit! The cream is light and fluffy, not too sweet. They loved it. Will definitely be using this recipe again in the future.

  84. 5 stars
    This was super good! I used canned whipped cream because I did not want to whip my own. I used about 3 cups of canned whipped cream and did not add any sugar (as the canned whipped cream has sugar already). I must have dipped the cookies for too long because the dessert was a bit liquidy when we ate it. With the leftovers, I ate it frozen and it was delicious! Like a coffee ice cream cake. I will make this again!

  85. I haven’t tried this but will. I am desperate to find a Strawberry Tiramisu recipe. My fiancé had it in Italy years ago, still talks about it constantly and I would love to surprise him with this.

  86. Just made this yesterday and tried it this morning!

    It was delicious! Thank you for the recipe 🙂

    Thank you for a great recipe Lauren! I tried making the original tiramisu before but wasn’t a success and turned out soggy! So I tried this recipe and it was absolutely amazing! Just perfect! Definitely a keep!

    Thank you! We had our family Sunday dinner theme “The tour of Italy” so Tiramisu just had to be the dessert. I looked at so many recipes. Everyone and I mean everyone kids included liked this recipe. This will be the one I fix for now on. Thank you!

    Love the quick and easy recipe. Although I switched out the granulated sugar for monk fruit my husband who is a diabetic tiramisu monster loved it! In

    BEST TIRAMISU EVER! This is may favorite dessert and I’ve tried many at different restaurants and cafes. By far, this is the most delicious one (and I couldn’t believe I made it myself!) Even my daughter asked me when she took the first bite “are you kidding me?” This recipe is just perfect!

  91. If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, they sell containers of mascarpone from much less than standard supermarkets.

  92. Hi. This was perfect in every way. I made the Tiramisu lastnight and it is this mornings ” Sweet treat with Breakfast” for my kids. Our end of the week ritual, lol!!!. They loved it, and I too. No alcohol, I opted for pure Almond extract instead. Greetings from Montreal.

    Absolutely amazing, I made a double batch my first time so I could take it to work. Hands down the best Tiramisu ever. I will definitely make it again.

    1. It’s super easy to make marscapone cheese! And cheaper than buying it in a store! Just heavy cream and a little lemon juice heated on your stove. Then strained. I make my own for cannoli cream puffs and Tiramisu and it’s yummy every time. Just google it for the full instructions 😋

      Whipped cream cheese will be a touch saltier than mascarpone, but the texture will be about right; just add a little extra sugar to taste. It comes in small tubs like whipped butter. If your local grocery stores don’t carry mascarpone (and can’t order some for you), the cream cheese will work okay.

  95. Hi I saw this recipe doesn’t have eggs in it. Does it look and taste the same as the traditional ones that do?

    This was a hit last time I made it. My husband and I may or may not have eaten the entire pan! Nobody was watching right?! Made it again today for an Easter dessert. So easy. So yummy.

    Super easy to make once you find the lady fingers in our local markets but other than that was easy to put together, had fun brewing in my old percolator the espresso. Well worth the time and effort.

    Absolutely delicious and super easy. I was always intimidated by the thought of making one, but this is a super, easy, delicious recipe! You will wonder why you waited so long!

    Easy-peasy and delicious. I used a shallow loaf pan, and ended up with extra ingredients, so I filled a couple clear dessert glasses; looked very classy.

  100. Do you have to put it in a pan or can you assemble freely? I am gifting it and would like it to look nice but won’t be getting the pan back.

    1. Hi Jen,
      If you are giving them away, I would suggest making them in a disposable aluminum or plastic container! I love to get mine at the dollar store!

    Wow, this recipe is so very easy, as the recipe stated. I did a small taste test last night after making it, and can’t wait to share it tonight at my family game night. It’s going to be a hit. Thank you.

  102. I made this today and I have to tell you this is one of those recipes that could be dangerous! It is so simple and sooooooo incredibly good that I can see making it…a lot! Thanks!

    1. Yay! That was my goal (not the “dangerous” part, but the “simple and incredibly good” part 😉 Thanks for sharing!

  103. Wowowowow! You just took away all my tiramisu making fears. Your approach is so simple and produces an absolutely beautiful cake. Cannot wait to dig into this one.
