Tiramisu is a coffee flavoured dessert make of layers of ladyfingers, mascarpone cheese, eggs,and chocolate. However I am not using eggs in this recipe but it believe me it’s delicious even without eggs. The strong coffee flavour, the creamy mascarpone and the smell of the chocolate is definitely make you wanting more. Here is my recipe of my tiramisu. Because I cannot get any mascarpone when I needed it, here I use ordinary cream cheese.
400 gr cream cheese.
150 ml double cream.
100 gr icing sugar.
200 ml espresso coffee. (I made with two tablespoons instant coffee with 200 ml boiling water).
300 gr ladyfingers.
1 tablespoon dark chocolate powder.
Home made tiramisu without an eggs.
In this recipe I am using 20 cm round mold or spring form cake tin.
In a bowl mix together the cream cheese, double cream and sugar. Please Do Not over mix it because the cream will turn into butter in no time. What you need is creamy, fluffy consistency, not buttery cream cheese. Set aside.
Dip the ladyfingers one by one in the warm coffee, then stand them on the side of the cake tin. You might need to cut some of the end off if you using same size tin as mine. You will need about 18 pieces of them for the standing frame. Next dip some more of the ladyfingers and lay them on the bottom of the tin, then add some of the cream cheese. Smoother it with the bottom of dinner spoon then sifter some of the chocolate powder. Repeat the process until all cream cheese are use up.
Best to make the night before and keep it in the fridge over night. Just before serving sift some more of the chocolate powder on top.
