Easy Tiramisu Recipe, my take on the classic Italian dessert, but with no alcohol and no eggs. This no-bake dessert is so indulgent and heavenly rich, made with those layers of coffee-soaked ladyfingers and silky mascarpone filling. It’s a must-have dessert for any party or celebration. Ready in about 10 minutes.
What is Tiramisu
Tiramisu is a famous no-bake Italian dessert that has become very popular all over the world. There are many varieties out there, but it is mainly made from lady or sponge fingers dipped in coffee, mascarpone or heavy cream/whipping cream, eggs and a touch of rum.
It is heavenly flavourful and at its best served chilled from the fridge. I find that the cake tastes even better the following day l make it, as the flavours are even more intense.
It is a posh dessert, so it can definitely be a winner if you serve it at a very special occasion. Why not have a super easy Tiramisu recipe without alcohol and raw eggs, and you get the perfect treat every single time. In this way you cater for people you do not drink alcohol, and people who avoid raw eggs.
I am not a coffee lover, yet l just love the subtle taste of coffee, its bitterness makes a lovely combination with the sweetness of the cream.
Egg and alcohol-free tiramisu
My Tiramisu is great to share with everyone, since it’s alcohol-free, so kids and people who do not drink alcohol will be delighted to have a good slice of the cake. I must say, I have tried the closer version to the authentic Tiramisu, with alcohol and raw eggs, and I can’t really tell much of a difference.
The recipe was made when I was pregnant, and since raw eggs had to be avoided no matter what, I thought I could come up with a recipe that is pregnancy friendly. Cravings will be cravings, hey!
I guess any recipe can be tweaked to our own liking, and just ignore people who go on about how the recipe you made is nothing like the real deal.
If you like it, then that’s perfect. After all, home baking is about trial and error, putting a bit of yourself in it, and sharing with the ones you love.
Another dessert I just love and also has mascarpone is my heavenly rich and indulgent No-bake Triple Chocolate Cheesecake. Needless to say I love no-bake desserts, they can be time-savers when time is short. Do give them a try!

A super easy tiramisu recipe without eggs and alcohol, my take on the famous Italian dessert, just a little less naughty. A great no-bake dessert that is ready in only 10 minutes.
- 2 packets lady/sponge fingers
- 150 g mascarpone cheese
- 150 g whipping cream
- 150 g heavy cream
- 3 tbsp powdered vanilla sugar
- 1 cup instant coffee
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
Pour boiled water into a wide bowl and add 1 tsp of instant coffee. Stir and then leave the coffee to cool completely.
Use an electric mixer to beat the whipping cream until it holds stiff peaks.
Add the mascarpone cheese and the heavy cream and mix again for 1 minutes.
Mix in the vanilla sugar and vanilla extract.
Dip each lady/sponge fingers one by one into the coffee for 1 second, making sure they are soaked, but not soggy. We want them to hold their shape.
Arrange the sponge fingers on a plate, then have a layer of the cream mixture, another layer of sponge fingers, and repeat until all the ingredients have been used, but make sure the top has the cream on.
Sprinkle cocoa powder on top.
Chill in the fridge for a few good hours, ideally overnight.
