Easy 10 Minute Tiramisu Recipe

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

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!

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, nobody needs to know this easy 10 Minute Tiramisu 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.

My Bold & Easy Secret

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 is 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 lady fingers. 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.

To finish off my 10 Minute Tiramisu 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. This dessert is a show stopper!

Author:
Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (8floz/225ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (8oz/225g) mascarpone cheese, room temperature (see substitute idea below)
  • ⅓ cup (2½ 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 Lady Fingers (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 lady fingers 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 first layer of lady fingers. Repeat process with second layer of lady fingers 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).
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!

    Hello,

    Thanks for the recipe
    Try forno bonomi lady fingers, it’s an italian brand and I think you will like it

      Hi Noura,
      Thank you for this suggestion. This cookie does originate in Italy, usually called Savoyardi, so that would be great.
      Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

    I have never made tiramisu before, or whipped cream (recipes I’ve done before are all without just that), but yesterday I tried your recipe, to bring to a meeting in a club. It went very well – people really liked it, to the point of second and third helpings, and no leftovers to bring home. Definitely a success.

    For my next attempt, though, I will try to up the amount of cream and cheese – I realised a bit too late (shops all closed) that the smallest form I have is 9 by 9 inches, so about 25% bigger surface area than your form. The layers of cream were a bit thin, and I barely managed to cover the top (but enough cocoa powder will cover a multitude of sins). I had used 250 grams mascarpone (the size of the container) and 2.5 dl cream – I think I’ll add 50 grams neutral cream cheese and 0.5 dl cream next time.

      hi Christina,
      well done you, I am happy this worked out well for you. It is easily adjusted, so write it out, add 1/3 or so, a little difference will not matter, then you will have it for future use.
      You are right though, cocoa covers a multitude of sins!
      Gemma 🙂
