Melt in Your Mouth Tiramisu

(5 Votes)
3 Hr

Our melt-in-your-mouth version of the popular chilled Italian-style dessert, Tiramisu, is made with ladyfinger cookies that are flavored with instant coffee granules and liqueur, layered in creamy filling and topped off with a dusting of cocoa.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 4 teaspoons instant coffee granules
  • 1/4 cup coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (8-ounce) container mascarpone cheese (see Note)
  • 1/2 cup refrigerated egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup (1/2 pint) heavy cream
  • 2 (3-ounce) packages ladyfingers
  • 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa
What To Do:
  1. In a small bowl, combine the water, coffee granules, liqueur, and vanilla; stir to dissolve the coffee then set aside. In a large bowl, beat the mascarpone cheese, egg substitute, and sugar until smooth; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold half of the whipped cream into the cheese mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Line the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish with one package of ladyfingers, slightly overlapping to fit. Spoon half of the coffee mixture over the ladyfingers. Spoon half of the cheese mixture evenly over the ladyfingers.
  4. Layer with the remaining package of ladyfingers and repeat with the coffee mixture and cheese mixture. Spoon the whipped topping over the top and sprinkle with the cocoa. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours before serving.


Mascarpone cheese is a fresh Italian double cream cheese that is buttery smooth in texture and can often be found in supermarket deli departments. If it's not available, you can substitute cream cheese beaten with a little milk until creamy and smooth.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

If you don't want too use egg substitute, you can get pasteurized eggs in some stores. That way, you don't have to worry about them being raw. I can't wait to make this for myself and my friend, who's favorite dessert is Tiramisu. Thank you!

Hi glad you are all enjoying your "Mr. Food" recipe. I don't remember what it was I made. Refresh my memory please. Am I the right Jackie?? Thanks for the info. Jackie

Can I use gelatine powder mix with 60 ml of warm water instead of eggs or egg substitute?

Can I use the Italian, crispy ladyfingers in this recipe? Please let me know.

yes, those are the ones I prefer

Use the crisp one, the soft ones will become soggy. I like Balocco Savoiardi brand. Available in an Italian deli or online.

Hi! What if I can't get any egg substitute, what can I use instead? Thanks. Pls reply I really like to make this for my daughter's bday party.

You can use 2 eggs beaten. Just remember this recipe is not cooked.

Is there egg substitue or not ? In the recipe above it states i/2 egg substitute. Can you please let us know which is correct. Looks good and would like to try.

Mine reads: 1/2 cup egg substitute

Can this be made ahead and frozen for a week or two?

I wouldn't freeze this, would probably become soggy

Do not believe we've tasted any better @ any high end restaurants! Wonderful, easy, quick. Have always wanted to make @ home....glad I tried Mr. Food's version. I used 2 whole beaten eggs for the sub.......I guess he used the sub for people who are afraid of the raw egg thing....not I. This looked absolutely beautiful when cut, just like Mr. Food's. Will be impressive for company as well. My hubby is ga-ga over it! Thanks!

Thanks all, for catching the error in this recipe. We've corrected the recipe ingredients and instructions. Enjoy!

I'm a little confused. Egg substitute IS included in the ingredients and instruction 1. Are these questions about a different recipe?

Absolutely delicious!

There is no egg substitute noted in the recipe but stated in the video. Please clarify -- is an egg substitute to be included or not???????

There is no egg substitute ingredient noted in the recipe, but it is mentioned in the video- Clarification?
