Eggless Tiramisu Recipe

Eggless Tiramisu Recipe

Traditionally, tiramisu contains raw eggs in the batter and this recipe went without them, hence "eggless". For a truly 100% eggless recipe (for those who are allergic to eggs), substitute ladyfingers biscuits (savoiardi) with eggless sponge cake, as ladyfinger biscuits contain eggs.

Serves: two 13x13 cm cakes

Prep Time: 30 mins


  • 200g (24) Italian ladyfingers biscuits (savoiardi) [NOTE: substitute with eggless sponge cake, if allergic to eggs]
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder

(A) Cream mixture

  • 250 grams mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp kahlua
  • 2 tbsp thickened cream (or whipping cream; whipped until stiff peaks appear)

(B) Coffee solution for dipping ladyfingers biscuits

  • 4 tbsp espresso coffee (you can also use brewed instant coffee or canned coffee)
  • 2 tbsp of coffee liquor such as kahlua

(C) Garnishing

  • any berries (I'm using strawberries here)


  • fine sieve (for dusting cocoa powder)
  • shallow food container with lid (I am using a 13x13 cm Lock & Lock container)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix (A) except cream with a spatula until well combined. Then fold in the cream until the mixture is of a creamy consistency.
  2. Add (B) in a wide and shallow dish. Dip one lady fingers biscuit (halfway lengthwise and quickly to prevent it from becoming soggy) in the coffee solution.
  3. Arranged dipped lady fingers biscuit within container box to form one layer of the cake. Spread a layer of cream mixture you prepared earlier over the biscuits with the back of your spoon.
  4. Dust a thin layer of cocoa powder using a fine sieve.
  5. Repeat steps 2 to 4 to form a second layer of cake. Cover with lid and chill the cake for a few hours until set. Slice and serve with fresh berries.

Noob Cook Tip

  1. You can find the mascarpone cheese and lady fingers biscuits at Cold Storage (Singapore)  or Carrefour.
  2. If you have leftover ingredients, you can serve the tiramisu in a ramekin or martini glass.

    Hi! for the caster sugar we only need 2tbsp? also, will it make a big difference if I’m using whipping cream instead of thickened cream?

      Yup. If using whipping cream – whip until stiff peaks are formed before using.

    Hi, may I know if it’s a must to use caster sugar? Will fine sugar do the job as well? Are there other biscuits to use other than ladyfinger biscuit?

    Just fyi…I tried the recipe but the (B) Coffee solution for dipping ladyfingers biscuits is too little.

      not supposed to dip too much or else the lady fingers will be too soggy. But if not enough, feel free to make more as required; they can be done in a jiffy :)
