This is a simple yet great-tasting recipe for an Eggless Tiramisu. It omits the raw eggs but uses mascarpone cheese. Pretty smart move I must say! Having made this many times, I feel that canned Nescafe coffee works better than home-made coffee (: The recipe calls for Baileys but feel free to replace it with any liquor of your choice! (:

The EGGLESS in this recipe refers to the omission of raw eggs unlike what most recipes call for. If you're looking at a totally egg free version for someone who's allergic to eggs or a vegetarian, may I suggest baking your own ladies' fingers. I have yet to try baking them so I shan't recommend any recipes. But do a quick google search, you'd be able to find a couple of them like I did! Alternatively, you may replace it with an eggless sponge cake. So there you go, a solution if you'd like to have a totally eggless rendition of a lovely Tiramisu!

The quantity for the Tiramisu shown in this video tutorial is the same as what you see in this image tutorial, just that it is being made in a 5.5" square cake 'ring'.
This is a hit to those many friends and family I've shared this with!
ppppst... here's another tub I made in early September 2013!
And another in Nov 2013...
It sure looks good packed in the container!
This recipe is really simple so I'm rating it a 2 out of 5 stars in terms of difficulty. It takes about 15 minutes to whip up the entire dish.
Eggless Tiramisu Recipe
makes one 9"x 6" Glass Tray
24 pcs Italian ladyfinger biscuits
2 tbsp cocoa powder
(A) Cream mixture
250 grams mascarpone cheese
1 tbsp vanilla bean paste
2 tbsp caster sugar
3 tbsp kahlua or Baileys (may be omitted if you'd like)
2 tbsp thickened cream
(B) Coffee solution for dipping ladyfingers biscuits
3 tbsp instant coffee mix in 150ml hot water
5 tbsp of coffee liquor such as kahlua/ Baileys (This is rather heavy in dosage so you may reduce it to 2/3 tbsp if you want it mild)
ALTERNATIVELY, you may use Nescafe instant canned coffee (original)! Tastes good too! (Takes about 2 - 3 cans)
Here's an example of the ingredients I commonly use.
Have the coffee granules ready in a bowl shallow enough for dipping the ladies' fingers.
Add in the hot water (from B) as well as liquor and mix well. Set aside.
Add all the ingredients in A together in a bowl.
Mix well till well combined.
Dip the ladies' fingers into the coffee mixture.
Coat the other side.
As quickly as you can, remove them from the bowl. (This is especially so for brands of ladies' fingers that soften really quickly)
Line the ladies' fingers in the dish.
Layer with 1/2 of the cheese mixture.
Sift a layer of cocoa powder on top of the cheese.
Sift well! (:
Repeat steps for second layer. You may pour the excess coffee mixture (if any) from the sides of the bowl to allow the ladies' fingers to soak them up.
Dust with another layer of cocoa powder and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight before serving chilled! (:
I hope you'll enjoy this Eggless Tiramisu! (:
