Eggless Tiramisu

Tiramisu, a beloved Italian dessert, has made its mark worldwide with its irresistible combination of coffee-soaked ladyfingers, creamy mascarpone cheese, and rich cocoa powder

Originating in the northern Italian region of Veneto, this indulgent treat has captured the hearts and taste buds of dessert lovers everywhere. But what if you’re looking to enjoy the decadence of tiramisu without the use of eggs? Look no further than Eggless Tiramisu.

While traditional tiramisu relies on the use of raw eggs to create its luscious texture, Eggless Tiramisu offers a delicious alternative for those with dietary restrictions or concerns about consuming raw eggs.

Made with a silky smooth dairy-free mascarpone substitute and a hint of vanilla for added depth of flavor, this eggless version of the classic dessert is both lighter and totally satisfying.

The recipe for Eggless Tiramisu may seem daunting at first glance, but fear not! With a bit of patience and attention to detail, you can easily recreate this Italian favorite in the comfort of your own kitchen.


Mascarpone Cheese: A rich and creamy Italian cheese that is the key ingredient in traditional tiramisu. It has a smooth texture and a slightly sweet flavor, which adds a decadent touch to the dessert.

Icing Sugar: Also known as confectioners’ sugar, this finely powdered sugar is used to sweeten the mascarpone cream layer of the tiramisu. It dissolves easily and helps create a smooth and creamy texture.

Double Cream: A thick and high-fat cream that adds richness and creaminess to the mascarpone mixture. It helps to create a luscious and velvety texture in the dessert.

Vanilla Extract: A flavoring agent made from vanilla beans that enhances the taste of the mascarpone cream layer. It adds a warm and aromatic flavor to the dessert.

Strong Brewed Coffee: A bold and flavorful coffee base that is used to soak the ladyfinger biscuits in. It adds a rich coffee flavor to the dessert and complements the creamy mascarpone layer.

Ladyfinger Biscuits: Also known as savoiardi, these dry and sponge-like biscuits are used to create the layers in tiramisu. They absorb the coffee mixture well and become soft and cake-like, providing a textural contrast to the creamy layers.

Cocoa Powder: A finely ground powder made from roasted and ground cacao beans that is used to dust the top of the tiramisu. It adds a bittersweet flavor and a decorative finish to the dessert.

Serving Suggestions and Pairings

  • Serve chilled: Tiramisu is best served cold, so make sure to refrigerate it for at least a few hours before serving.
  • Garnish with cocoa powder: Dusting the top of the tiramisu with cocoa powder not only adds a decorative touch but also enhances the flavors of the dessert.
  • Add a dollop of whipped cream: For an extra decadent touch, top each serving of tiramisu with a dollop of freshly whipped cream.
  • Pair with espresso: Tiramisu pairs beautifully with a shot of espresso on the side. The combination of the rich, creamy dessert with a strong, bitter coffee creates a perfect balance of flavors.
  • Pair with fresh berries: For a lighter dessert option, serve the tiramisu with a side of fresh berries, such as raspberries or strawberries. The tartness of the fruit cuts through the richness of the dessert and provides a refreshing contrast.
