If you have a real penchant for tiramisu but you don't want to make it with raw or pasteurized egg, then we have just the thing for you: eggless tiramisu! Think ladyfinger biscuits dipped in coffee meet velvety mascarpone and whipped cream, the irresistible creaminess and pleasant sweetness of this typical Italian dessert making you weak at the knees with every bite. Serve in single-portion glasses for an elegant and sophisticated end to your meal, or add chocolate chips between the layers for an even richer dessert with added crunch. You might even like to try the strawberry or berry version, allowing you to enjoy the sweetness of tiramisu without quite as much guilt!
How to prepare Eggless tiramisù
To make the eggless tiramisu, first make the coffee to soak the ladyfingers in using a moka pot. Whip the cream in a bowl using an electric beater 1, gradually add the powdered sugar 2 and continue until semi-whipped 3.
Once the cream is ready 4, add in the mascarpone a little at a time 5 and mix everything together gently but thoroughly 6.
Transfer the cream to a pastry bag without a nozzle 7 and start filling your glasses 8. Spread a layer of cream on the bottom of each small glass to form the base 9.
Slice each ladyfinger biscuit in half 10, then pour the cooled ristretto coffee into a large container and quickly soak the ladyfingers 11. Lay the biscuits on top of the layer of cream in each small glass 12.
Next, add another layer of cream 13, then sprinkle with unsweetened cocoa powder. Continue with another halved ladyfinger 14 and finish with a layer of cream 15.
Fill to the rim of the glass 16. Repeat this process for all of the other glasses and sprinkle your eggless tiramisu with unsweetened cocoa 17 powder before serving 18.
The eggless tiramisu can be covered with plastic wrap and kept in the refrigerator for up to 1-2 days. Not suitable for freezing.
You might like to add chocolate chips in between the layers of the Tiramisu. If you like, you can also add liqueur to the coffee to give the dessert that extra shot of flavor.
