Eggless Tiramisu anyone? This is one of the most iconic 🇮🇹 Italian desserts and one of my favorite desserts in this world. I am trying to be really mindful of everyone, and I know a lot of people don’t like to work with eggs or are afraid of raw eggs in general. Traditionally, tiramisu is made with raw 🥚 eggs or tempered eggs on the stove, but I totally understand how that can be intimidating for people. I am here to show you an even easier method that you can enjoy and the taste is exactly the same. This dessert takes 15 minutes from start to finish and the hardest part is waiting for it to set.

Why You’ll Love Eggless Tiramisu

Eggless Tiramisu is such a classic Italian dessert and for great reason. The luxurious creamy mascarpone filling is so decadent and just sweet enough. The coffee flavor sings in this dessert and helps soften the ladyfingers perfectly. The sprinkling of 🍫 cocoa takes it right over the edge and makes for a lovely presentation. The result is a creamy and smooth bite, that’s ❄️ cold from the fridge and beautifully light. Plus, this is a perfect make-ahead and even better the next day. Making this eggless makes it absolutely foolproof and great for those who don’t eat eggs or can’t eat them raw.

How to Prepare Eggless Tiramisu

🥛Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, whip the cream until it forms stiff peaks and then set it aside.

🥣 In a separate bowl mix mascarpone cheese, sugar, and vanilla together. Slowly combine your whipped cream with your mascarpone mixture until you get a nice smooth cream.

☕ Brew some coffee or espresso and then let it cool down fully. Add in a splash of Kahlua if you wish.

🧑‍🍳 In a 9 x 13-inch dish, begin to arrange your tiramisu: start by dipping each ladyfinger cookie into the coffee and then layer them on the bottom of your pan.

🥄 Now, evenly spread half of the filling on top.

❄️ Repeat this step until you’ve used all the filling (or the pan is full), and then cover and refrigerate for 4 hours to overnight.

🍫 Dust with cocoa or cacao powder and enjoy.

Nonna’s Tip ☕

Just give the ladyfingers a quick dip into the coffee to avoid them getting too soggy.

Variations and Substitutions for Eggless Tiramisu

  1. Feel free to add as much sugar as you like but keep in mind that the ladyfingers are sweetened as well, so try not to overdo it.
  2. You are more than welcome to use rum or any 🥃 coffee liquor or just leave it out altogether.

Common Questions

How do I prevent the ladyfingers from becoming too soggy?

Dip each ladyfinger into the coffee mixture really quickly. Don’t soak them because they’ll get really mushy. Just a quick dip to pick up that coffee flavor and soften.

What size dish should I use for this eggless tiramisu?

I used a 9 x13-inch dish, but you can use any. The number of layers and the thickness of the tiramisu will vary depending on the size of the dish. You can even make this recipe in little individual ramekins or pretty glasses.

What kind of liqueur is traditionally used in tiramisu?

Marsala wine is traditionally used in tiramisu, but you can also use rum, brandy, or coffee liqueur as well.

how do I avoid lumps in my mascarpone filling?

I like to bring the mascarpone up to room temperature so it folds into the whipped cream really nicely.
