Tiramisu Cheesecake for 2 (No Bake) - An incredibly decadent desserts that combines a delicate Tiramisu with the Boldness of a Cheesecake. The perfect Valentine’s Day Dessert

Hi Bold Bakers!

For Valentine’s Day this year I thought what better way to celebrate the special day than by baking with my husband, Kevin. Not only is he the peanut butter to my jelly but he is also the other half of Bigger Bolder Baking that you don’t often get to see because he is behind the camera filming and editing. 

We both love desserts, obviously. When trying to decide what to bake together l learned one of Kevin’s favorite desserts is a Tiramisu and one of mine is Cheesecake! That’s where I came up with the idea for a Tiramisu Cheesecake for 2. It’s an incredibly decadent dessert that combines a delicate Tiramisu with the Boldness of a Cheesecake. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert.

This Tiramisu is no bake so it’s quite fast to make. It also doesn’t contain eggs or gelatin like a traditional Tiramisu and cheesecake.

Learn how to make my No-Bake Tiramisu Cheesecake, an easy-to-make decadent dessert that combines a delicate Tiramisu with the boldness of a cheesecake!
Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 2 -4

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cup (33/4oz/103g) cookie crumbs, digestives or graham crackers
  • ¼ cup (2oz/57g) butter, Melted
  • 1 cup (8oz/225g) cream cheese
  • 1 cup (8oz/225g) mascarpone
  • 1 cup (8floz/225ml) cream
  • ½ cup (2oz/57g) icing sugar
  • 5-6 teaspoons instant coffee granules (or a strong cup of coffee)
  • 1 cup (8oz/225ml) hot water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 pack Ladyfingers (around 30 biscuits)
  • cocoa powder for decorating

Instructions

  • Mix together the cookie crumbs and melted butter to make the cookie base. Place in fridge to set for 20 minutes.
  • Dissolve the coffee granules in the hot water. Set aside
  • Beat together the mascarpone, cream cheese and powdered sugar with a hand mixer until smooth and there are no lumps.
  • Mix in the vanilla extract and 4 tablespoons of the coffee mix.Taste at this point and add in more coffee or vanilla if desired
  • Pour in the cream and continue whipping until the mix thicken and holds stiff peaks. You want this mix to be stiff as we are not adding gelatin to the cheesecake
  • Take your base from the fridge and spread half of the cream cheese mix into the tin. Bang it on the counter so that there are no gaps or air bubbles.
  • With the remaining coffee mix quickly dip the ladyfingers in it, turn them and place them in the tin on top of the cheesecake filling. Note: only dip on each side for a second as they get soggy fast. Continue until you have a layer of ladyfingers in the tin
  • With the remaining cheesecake mix spread it on top of the ladyfingers. Tap the tin on the counter to make sure there are no air bubbles in your cheesecake. Smooth out the top with a spatula
  • Set the Tiramisu Cheesecake in the fridge overnight to firm up. This cake can be made 2 days in advance.
  • When ready to serve dust the top with cocoa powder. I placed extra ladyfingers around the cake. They will naturally stick to the cheesecake mix. You don’t have to do that step but it does look beautiful.
  • Pipe whipped cream around the top and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This cake can be made 2 days in advance so you can prepare it before Valentines day

Tiramisu is my favorite because I love coffee so much! And this time everything was made according to your recipes from scratch! Mascarpone, graham Crackers and lady fingers. I cold brewed some Kona coffee and put 2 Tbsp of Kahlua coffee liquor. The aroma and taste are sooo heaven!
By the way, cannot wait to see your Irish coffee cake recipe video with Kona coffee! If you have some Kona coffee left, lol.

What fun experience from this recipe! 1.I made some lady fingers for my mom’s 60th birthday. So I couldn’t wait to try this recipe out but I didn’t have heavy whipping cream. Substituted it with 1/4 cup butter and 3/4 cup of milk which worked for ganache. As expected, the mixture couldn’t be whipped. It did get foamy. So I put in about 2Tbsp of cornstarch after microwaving for 1minute. Maybe the corn starch helped a bit. The final product took longer time to set but it wasn’t liquidy. Like soft tiramisu. From the same batch, one portion in the… Read more »

Dear Gemma,

I am from Singapore. I love watching you and all your recipes. Am going to try this recipe in time for Valentine. I noticed the base of the cake pan was removed. How did you managed to transfer the entire cake to a plate?

Thank you ????

Hii Gemma! This cheesecake tasted soo good! Just wasn’t firm enough and was wondering if we can add gelatin to it. Can you help out with the measurements of gelatin and water? Thank you!!

I tried this one but realized afterward that I made a mistake… or two! I used whipping cream instead of HEAVY whipping cream – ended up breaking it trying to get to stiff peaks but didn’t have time or ingredients to do it over. Added gelatin to firm it up, which worked, but texture was more like cottage cheese! Ew! Added a little coffee liqueur to the coffee which I did like. I doubled the recipe but only had one package of ladyfingers – would have been more tasty if that was doubled as well as the filling was quite… Read more »
