My easy 10 Minute Tiramisu recipe takes all the fuss out of a classic Tiramisu by simplifying the method while delivering you maximum delicious results!


Hi Bold Bakers!

Made from start to finish in 10 minutes with homemade ingredients like my Creamy Mascarpone Cheese and my Easy Homemade Lady Fingers, this updated tiramisu recipe gives the classic a run for its money!

You’ve requested tiramisu a lot, and you’ve asked for desserts you can make when you don’t have a lot of time, so by popular demand, I’m bringing you my easy 10 Minute Tiramisu recipe!

[Make Homemade Mascarpone Cheese for this Tiramisu!]

What is Tiramisu?

One of my favorite Italian desserts is classic tiramisu. Rich and creamy in texture with hints of espresso, almond, and chocolate. What’s not to like? As a professional chef, I’ve made my share of classic tiramisu recipes but I always thought it took a few more steps than it should. So, I decided to revamp a classic tiramisu recipe to include all the flavor, but less of the fuss.

It will be our secret because nobody needs to know my easy 10 Minute Tiramisu Recipe took you less than half the time to prepare. The few steps I’ve simplified mean I can really enjoy entertaining and not just end up stuck in the kitchen when I make this recipe as something special to enjoy with family and friends.

How to Make My Tiramisu Recipe in 10 Minutes

What makes this 10 Minute Tiramisu different from the rest? Well, usually this dessert requires you to separate eggs, make a custard, then fold that into another mixture with whipped cream and mascarpone cheese — and that’s just the first step. Bottom line, all you need to make a killer tiramisu is fresh heavy dairy cream, mascarpone cheese, sugar, and good vanilla.

Now all you have to do is whip these ingredients together, and layer with classic ladyfingers. I swear to you no one will be saying “I really miss the eggs,” especially because they’ll be too busy swooning over how gorgeous your tiramisu is.

And be sure to give my Homemade Ladyfingers recipe a try.

Can’t Find Ladyfingers? Make Them!

Equally as important as the mascarpone mousse filling is the ladyfinger biscuits that line the tiramisu.

While store-bought will do here, they can be hard to find or you might not have them on hand. Not to worry, because I have two different ladyfinger recipes! One is for classic Homemade Ladyfingers and the other is for Egg-free Ladyfingers. Both of these recipes are super simple cookie recipes that have just a few basic ingredients.

The best part about using my ladyfingers recipe in My 10 Minute Tiramisu recipe is knowing the finished product is 100% made scratch. There is a huge difference in flavor and texture, and not only is this the fastest tiramisu you’ll ever make, but the most decadent!

How to Top Tiramisu

To finish off my 10 Minute Tiramisu recipe, I put a little extra love into the presentation and this too is a cinch. I simply pipe little mounds of the sweet mascarpone mixture all across the top of my tiramisu and sprinkle with cocoa powder.

Can You Make 10-minute Tiramisu with Other Flavors?

Once I made this 10-minute classic, I was inspired by you bold bakers to experiment with other flavor variations. Many of you asked if more chocolate could be added or if there are other flavorings besides the coffee.

With these questions, I went into the kitchen and created two different variations on my 10-minute tiramisu: my 10 Minute Summer Berry Tiramisu and my 10 Minute Chocolate Tiramisu. That means a fruity variation for those that love fresh bright fruity flavors, a gorgeous chocolate version for all those chocoholics out there. This recipe doubles down on the chocolate by adding a layer of rich chocolate mascarpone mousse!

My 10-Minute Tiramisu recipe takes all the fuss out of a classic Tiramisu by simplifying the method while delivering you maximum delicious results!

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (8floz/225ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (8oz/225g) mascarpone cheese, room temperature (see substitute idea below)
  • 1/3 cup (2 1/2 oz/71g) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon Amaretto liquor or Brandy (optional but yummy!)
  • 2 cups (16oz/450ml) espresso or STRONG coffee at room temperature
  • 1 pack Ladyfingers (Boudoir biscuits/Savoiardi. Look for eggless if needed)
  • Cocoa powder for dusting the top
Instructions
  1. Beat whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla until soft peaks form.
  2. Add in mascarpone cheese and amaretto (if using) and continue to whip to stiff peaks.
  3. Dip ladyfingers in coffee (and brandy if using) and place in an 8×8 pan to make the first layer – you can fit about 7 cookies in each layer. Don't let them soak as the will fall apart, just a quick dunk in the coffee is enough.

  4. Spread half of the whipped cream mixture on top of the first layer of ladyfingers. Repeat process with the second layer of ladyfingers and cream mixture.
  5. Dust the top of dessert with cocoa powder using a sieve. Refrigerate for about 2-4 hours (it gets even better in the fridge and is a perfect make-ahead dessert).

Recipe Notes

1 cup Mascarpone Cheese Substitution: Cream together 6 oz. softened cream cheese, 2 Tablespoons sour cream, and 3 Tablespoons heavy cream.
You can make an egg free sponge cake for this using my egg substitute chart.
If using alcohol, add the Amaretto to the whipped cheese and cream mix, and the brandy, or rum, to the coffee mix. Use one or the other, or both!

*Make Homemade Ladyfingers including an egg-free recipe!

    Hi Gemma,
    I love you videos and your recipes. I’ve used a few of your recipes and they all turned out amazing. I will try the tiramisu recipe. I do have a question, if I want to incorprate the recipe you have for the tiramisu cheesecake can I use this recipe and layer it in the round pan will it hold as well? Or would I have to use the tiramisu cheesecake for it to stand. Can I use two cups of mascarpone cheese instead of cream cheese? Kindly please advise. I like the idea of how you have it shaped in the tiramisu, but I like this recipe more so wasn’t sure if it’ll stand if I use the cake pan. Thank you.

    • Gemma Stafford on February 14, 2019 at 5:38 am

      Hi Lynn,
      I think you mean will it be stiff enough to stand! It really depends on your ingredients. Mascarpone is a stiff, rich, cream cheese and will be delicious in this. Mixed with 35% fat content real dairy cream, then it should hold up really well for you.
      Cream cheese varies according to what it is intended for. Some is designed for baking, others for spreading. Here in the US we get a block of cream cheese which is dry ish, and works beautifully. Take a look in your store, the more expensive ones are not necessarily the best!
      I hope this helps, I say, go for it!
      Gemma 🙂

    Ok i will keep it short. I made it right down to the lady fingers which look horrid. I need piping lessons. They taste wonderful. Everything whipped up fine. I also made the mascarpone cheese too so this desert is totally homemade. I cant wait for desert after dinner. The mascarpone cheese is so simple to make and all i had was ultra pasteurized whipping cream. It worked excellent. Thank you Gemma for all the teaching for this delightful desert.

    • Gemma Stafford on February 13, 2019 at 5:44 pm

      I am sure they taste delicious! Baking is all about practice🙂

  3. Krisztina on February 11, 2019 at 7:59 pm

    Thanks anyways I saved this into my top favs!

    • Gemma Stafford on February 12, 2019 at 10:02 am

      YAY i am delighted to hear that, this is one of my personal favorites!

  4. Stella Lostritto on February 11, 2019 at 5:38 pm

    Hi Gemma, I wanted to make vanilla extract and looked at Amazon, it’s pretty expensive for beans so I’d like to know if I can use pure vanilla bean paste? I was wondering why your vanilla was almost white and store brand is like Carmel color. Also can I use Brandy or Burbin in my triamisu. I love watching your videos Thanks alot and have a Blessed day.

    • Gemma Stafford on February 12, 2019 at 10:09 am

      Hi there, for this i would suggest using real beans. Often times store bought extract have added color where as min had nothing added.

  5. marlene jones on February 9, 2019 at 9:26 pm

    I dont know what happened to my other review but i will write another. I havent made this yet but im making a list of what to buy. Im going to make the mascarpone cheese too for this tiramisu. The real reason im writing it to tell you im so in love with you. Lol not ina girl to girl way but i just love your personality, the lilt of your accent, your smile and your presentations. And your videos are so very professional. They are up there with the best. If not THE best of all. You must have a great editor. Theres never any loud noises or screeches of mixer to bowl, no kids running in and out, nothing to distract us from the recipe at hand. But the best oart of course is the food you make. My word homemade marshmallow fluff? Seriously? Who makes their own fluff? Well i will be whenever im out from now on and this also inckudes homemade marshmallows too. My little short chubby hubby adores marshmallow krispie treats. Can you imagine if i make the marshmallows for the treats? Im afraid he may die…..oh wait hes diabetic so maybe i shouldnt do this. Aahhhh what the heck he can watch the amount he devours. Lol anyway im so sorry i took so much of your precious time here listening to me blather on. Im sure you know anyone who tastes anything of yours adores you and when they see that wonderful smile and hear your irish brogue they just melt into a puddle of love for you.
    Hugs
    Marlene

      Hi Marlene,
      Once more today, thank you! The comments await moderation before they are published. This allows me time to respond, to research a question etc.
      Thank you for you fun input, I really enjoyed your responses, you have the gift of the gab, as we say in Ireland!
      Gemma 🙂

  6. marlene jones on February 9, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    Gemma i just have to comment on your recipes and your videos. I just found you on YT. Im thoroughly mad about you. No im not gay just pleasantly thrilled with your fun personality and the lilt of your accent. And the recipes are crazy wonderful. You deserve all the money and attention and love you get. Im an older lady with grown kids and grands. But i still have a good hubby to cook and bake for and im tryin my best to give him homemade delicious food that will not be full of chemicals and additives. I have one other YouTube cook i love. The Wyse Guide. KALEB WYSE. Hes as gay as can be and i adore him. He makes faces and is hilarious but man he can cook and bake. The 2 of you will possibly cause my weight to rise but i dont care….im going to die fat and happy. Lol oops sorry this turned into novel. I just had to tell you i love your foods and you so very much. Hugs and much happiness.
    Marlene

      Haha! Maralene, you are a ticket, that is what I call a funny person, and you made me laugh. I bet there is never a dull moment in your house.
      Delighted that you are enjoying your baking, and your good hubby too! well done you,
      Gemma 🙂

  7. Bonnie Silsby-Inman on February 9, 2019 at 8:18 am

    Are you adding 1/3 CUP of sugar? In your video it doesn’t look like you are adding that much. Thank you.

    • Gemma Stafford on February 10, 2019 at 1:55 am

      Hi Bonnie,
      Videos get edited to keep them simple and smart. The best thing to do is follow the recipes as written. You can reduce the sugar too if you wish, that will work for you,
      Gemma 🙂

  8. Patsy on February 8, 2019 at 9:23 am

    Hi Gemma. Your tiramisu looks beautiful! I’d like to make it for 16 people. Can I just double the recipe to make a 9×13 size? Or do adjustments need to be made? Thanks!

    • Gemma Stafford on February 9, 2019 at 2:35 am

      Hi Patsy,
      thank you, yes, it is pretty perfect for what you need. It is math, to a point, and mine are really simple. 8×8 = 64 sq inches.
      9×13 = 117 sq inches. That is almost twice the pan size, so double the recipe will be great!
      Hope toy have a great party,
      Gemma 🙂

  9. Tasha on February 7, 2019 at 2:03 pm

    Curious!!! If I make this tonight, would it still be good for tomorrow, or would it be quite soggy?

    • Gemma Stafford on February 7, 2019 at 4:23 pm

      It will be softer but it will still taste awesome!

  10. A ebrahim on February 3, 2019 at 9:18 pm

    Hi Gemma,

    This is by far the easiest tiramisu recipe I have seen. I made it and it turned out great with a few minor adjustments. Just had a qs though… I whisked the heavy cream, sugar and vanilla and then added the mascarpone cheese and whisked again, however it was still not as thick as yours in the video. It was slightly watery. Did I have it to whisk it more? If so usually how long did it take u to whisk yours?

    Thank u!

    • Gemma Stafford on February 4, 2019 at 4:20 pm

      Hi there, i whip the cream and mascarpone up until it’s really thick and stiff at least for 5 minutes.

  11. Patty on January 31, 2019 at 9:50 am

    Best tiramisu ever, before I could take a picture , it was gone. Thank you for this delicious, easy, decadent tiramisu.😬

    • Gemma Stafford on February 1, 2019 at 4:05 pm

      It’s my pleasure, this is one of my favorites too!

  12. Zara on January 30, 2019 at 6:37 pm

    Oh my goodness! The easiest and tastiest tiramisu ever! The whole bowl got eaten up right away! I made two bowls this week! This is my goto recipe from now on! Love it!

    • Gemma Stafford on January 31, 2019 at 2:11 am

      Hi Zara,
      I know! dangerous 😉
      It is so easy too, and to rock the changes see too the berry one, and the chocolate one too, great things to bring a pot luck!
      Thank you for this lovely review,
      Gemma 🙂

  13. Susan Wolfe on January 24, 2019 at 5:17 pm

    Made this recipe and it was quick, easy and oh, so delicious. We loved it so much I made it a second time within a week. Shared it with several friends who also raved about it. Will never order it again in our local Italian chain restaurant. This one is so much better! Thank you Gemma!!

    • Gemma Stafford on January 24, 2019 at 9:33 pm

      😀 I am delighted to hear that, this is one of my favorites too!

  14. Cindy Ng on January 24, 2019 at 7:13 am

    Does this tiramisu call for unsweeten or sweeten cocoa powder?

    Thank you

    • Gemma Stafford on January 24, 2019 at 9:35 pm

      Hi there, i always use unsweetened cocoa. Enjoy!

  15. Stella Lostritto on January 15, 2019 at 12:17 pm

    Please email me your receipt for 10 min taramaso and for ladyfingers so I can add it to my receipts. I can’t wait to try it, it my family favorite we have been buying a tray for 40.00 sometimes 2 trays lol… Thanks

    • Gemma Stafford on January 16, 2019 at 3:30 am

      Gemma 🙂

  16. Christiana J Culligan on January 13, 2019 at 10:40 am

    So easy and wow, so yummy! I didn’t have any Amaretto so I added a little bit of almond extract to the coffee and brandy and it turned out great to add that bit of umpf! All my guests loved it that attended our first lasagna cook off last night and these are foodie people:) So happy I found this recipe, will make it again for sure.

    • Gemma Stafford on January 14, 2019 at 3:25 am

      Hi Christiana,
